The Little Tokyo Library Quilters’ Annual Quilt Show will take place on Saturday, Aug. 13, and promises to be better than ever.
In addition to their “Ladies of the Heian Court” raffle quilt, the Quilters will display many of their own quilts and other creative projects completed during the past year. They will also be selling lap quilts, a large assortment of Asian fabric fat quarters, and boutique items such as Asian-themed T-shirts, pillows and decorative wall hangings.
The show will be held from 12 noon to 4 p.m. at Union Church in Little Tokyo, located on the corner of Third and San Pedro streets. As usual, admission and parking are free. Patrons can park in the church parking lot during the show.
The “Ladies of the Heian Court” raffle quilt features beautiful hand-stitched sashiko embroidery on a dark navy background to enhance the graceful images of the court ladies. Raffle tickets can be purchased at the show for $2 each or three for $5, or from any Quilter or Little Tokyo Branch Library board member. The drawing for the quilt will be held at a board meeting in early November, and the winner will be notified.
All profits from the Quilt Show and raffle tickets will help to fund vital programs and materials for the Little Tokyo Branch Library.
Anyone interested in joining the Quilters is welcome to attend one of their bi-monthly meetings. They meet on the second and fourth Friday of each month from 10 to 11:30 a.m. to work on the annual raffle quilt, exchange fabrics, share ideas for their own quilting projects, and enjoy the camaraderie of warm friendships developed over the years.
