Annual quilt show slated

MAYFIELD — The Mayfield Central Presbyterian Church, 22 N. Main St., will hold its 24th annual quilt show on June 7 and 8. This is the only known annual quilt show in Fulton County and it will have more than 100 quilts on display, according to a news release.

Kathryn Greenwold from Niskayuna, who is a quilt teacher, designer, lecturer, and appraiser, will be the featured artist this year. She was introduced to quilting and embroidery by grandmothers. She collaborated with Lynn Reynolds Makrin writing and designing quilt patterns for two books, Amish Shadows Light Reflected which focuses on the traditional Amish shadows block, and Roads to Everywhere, Ladders to Heaven, the Jacob’s Ladder quilt pattern and various “roads to” blocks for a more modern look at these traditional blocks. Both books are available from the authors.

At 6:30 p.m. June 7, Greenwold will share a “bed turning” program featuring several antique quilts and their stories. The admission for the show on Friday is $5 and includes re-admission on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Saturday admission alone is $3.

The visitors will have an opportunity to vote for their favorite quilts in three categories: Large, small and “beauty of the earth in nature” challenge.

There will be sandwiches, cookies and beverages available both days and the “Presbyterian hamburger soup” will be added for Saturday luncheon specials.

There will be vendors at the show as well as a display by Fulton-Montgomery Quilt Barn Square Trail (Liz Argotsinger).
