Rumplestilskien Fibre Arts Guild, Riverside Artists and the 4-H sewing club are all busily preparing for a show at the Rock Creek Pavilion on April 18/19.

The theme of the quilt show is “From Traditional to Trending.”

According to Lynda Dennill, Rumplestilskien has some 20 members from across the West Boundary and they are aiming for 200 quilts on display.

They only do a show every few years. Dennill said the group has been active for around 30 years. In 2010 they changed their name from Rumplestilskien Spinners and Weavers to the Rumplestilskien Fibre Arts Guild.

There will be a story display on comfort quilts and demonstrations by the members on such topics as needle crafting, quilting, fabric pottery, modern quilting and rug hooking.

“Vendors will be at the show so that the quilters can replenish their stashes of fabric or any new gadgets they may be looking for,” said Dennill. Vendors are from Oyama, Summerland, Oliver and locally.

Rumplestilskien meets twice a month, on the second and fourth Wednesday. For more information about the guild contact Judy Harpur 250-446-2406 or Lynda Dennill 250-446-2431.

The show will run on Saturday, April 18 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Sunday, April 19 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Admission is $5 and Jerry Watson will be providing a luncheon concession.
