The 2015 Bishop Hill Quilt Show will be from May 15 to May 17. This year’s theme is “Wine, Women, and Windows.” At the Colony School, there will be over 100 quilts on display, raffle baskets, free demonstrations, and a Trash & Treasures Corner that has some great bargains. Admission fee for the Colony School is $5. Proceeds from the show will be used for various charity quilts distributed to local hospitals, homes for the elderly, veterans, and children in need. Throughout the rest of Bishop Hill, there will be additional quilt exhibits in a variety of shops and museums, including a special display in the Steeple Building Museum created by BHHA volunteers, and the Challenge Quilts in the Welcome Center. For more details, please call 309 927-3851.
The quilt show is sponsored by the Prairie Queen Quilt Club and the Bishop Hill Arts Council. Show hours for May 15 and 16 are from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Show hours for May 17 are from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
