The WV Strawberry Festival will feature the 44th annual Quilt Show, sponsored by the Quilters at Heart Guild and the Upshur County CEOS. This year’s show will be held at the Rockefeller Center Gymnasium on the WV Wesleyan College campus, where visitors can enjoy viewing a range of stunning quilts on display.
In addition to the quilts, visitors can also peruse the boutique, where they will find a variety of handmade items available for purchase. This year’s Quilt Show prize sponsor is Mountain State Quilting of Philippi, which has generously provided prizes for the top winners. The Best in Show winner will receive a gift certificate for $100, while the Judge’s Choice and People’s Choice winners will each receive $50.
For those looking to support a good cause, visitors can also purchase raffle tickets for the charity quilt made by Guild members. This year’s recipient of the proceeds from the raffle quilt will be Ruth’s House, and the drawing will be held in October.
The WV Strawberry Festival Quilt Show is a highly anticipated event that celebrates the art of quilting and showcases the talent of local quilters. So why not come out and enjoy the stunning quilts, purchase some handmade items, and support a worthy cause at the same time?
