The Landrum Quilters will sponsor a quilt roundup from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. during the Saturday, May 28 Home and Garden Stroll in downtown Landrum. The LQ tent will be set up in front of Elaine’s Attic at The Coach House, located at 227 E. Rutherford Street.

Residents are encouraged to bring their treasured quilts for pattern identification and pictures. They will also receive educational materials on how to care for their quilts and can make informational quilt labels. Flyers on the upcoming Landrum Quilt Show, June 9 – 11, and tickets for the 2011 fund-raiser quilt will also be available.

To promote the quilt show, scheduled every two years, a number of Landrum businesses are participating in a quilt stroll by displaying both vintage and contemporary quilts until June 13.
