   What happened in 1986 that changed Citrus County forever?  QUILTS!  A group of 14 ladies got together and decided to start a quilt guild and Creative Quilters of Citrus County began. In 1986 the now 25 members had their first quilt show.  This year is Creative’s 30th year and they will have their 15th quilt show , Diamond Jubilee.

   Looking at quilts is only one of the many reasons to come to the show.  The Boutique is always a big draw.  Here the members sell items they have made throughout the past two years.  All manner of fabric items, note book covers, pot holders, decorated t-shirts and Christmas ornaments to name a few.IMG_1176.JPG

    Vendors, yes there are vendors.  Each booth has a myriad of tempting items, the newest gadgets, the latest patterns, sewing machines that will do everything except make toast. IMG_1209.JPG

    Brenda Grampsas Certified Appraiser will be available to let you know how much Great Aunt Hattie's old quilt is really worth for a very reasonable fee.  Anyone with quilts should know their value for insurance, if no other reason.  If you mailed Great Aunt Hattie's quilt to another family member and it was lost or damaged, you could only collect the value of the fabric, with a certified   appraisal the actual value could be claimed. This could be the difference of receiving $50 or $1500.

    Quilts are entered to be judged by Brenda Kalata NQA Certified Quilt Judge and ribbons will be displayed on the winning quilts.

   One of the big things at the show is the Raffle Quilt.  Every two years a quilt is finished and offered to the public.  Tickets are $1 or 6 tickets for $5.  All proceeds are given to Hospice of Citrus County.  The drawing will take place at 2pm on Saturday and is always a very exciting moment for all the people who have, what they hope is, the winning ticket.  IMG_0366.JPG
