The Harvest of Quilts Quilt Show on October 18-19, 2013 at the
Dennis Wicker Civic Center in Sanford, NC was a great success. I'm with the Band by Sana Moulder won the Best of Show Prize
of $300. The hit of the show was Lucy and Ethel who
arrived at the show in their "Quiltmobile" and parked it in the front of the Wicker Center.
One hundred forty quilts were on display. Twenty vendor booths were selling sewing machines, fabric, sewing supplies, baskets, notions, and all other quilt related items.
A booth of handmade items were on sale made by the Hearts and Hands ECA Quilters' Guild. The NC Extension ECA Booth was the starting point for the Quilt Trail which was a collection of 4 x 4 foot
quilt blocks scattered over the town of Sanford highlighting landmarks and places of interest. To access the
All Aboard for Lee County Quilt Trail Facebook Page go to https://www.facebook.com/leecountyquilttrail. Twice each day during the show a program was presented, The Turning of the Quilts. This was a collection of antique quilts demonstrated with a history of each quilt.
Tickets were on sale for our raffle quilt, Harvest Time Succotash, and two raffle baskets. Approximately 150 door prizes were given
