The 2017 National Quilting Day celebration takes place on Saturday, March 18, 2017 from 9:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the Landrum Library. The Landrum Quilters (LQ) sponsor this annual event open to the public without charge.

A colorful quilt display will fill the Community Room; members will also work on various quilting projects and will be available to answer questions. Residents with vintage quilts are welcome to bring them to show the quilters.

This beautiful Triple Irish Chain, which dates to 1853, was shared last year by Maggie Collins, right in photo. Admiring the hand stitching were LQ members Jeanne Rist and Shirley Arledge. Ms. Collins’ great grandmother Nancy DeShields of Cross Anchor was the quilter.

Coming up soon will be the 2017 Landrum Quilt Show, June 8-10 at the Landrum Middle School Gym.
