Save the Date: St. Mark's Quilt Show & Craft Faire

Vintage and contemporary quilts and quilted items and handmade crafts will be featured in the St. Mark's Quilt Show and Craft Faire on Saturday, June 25, 9:30am-3:30pm.

The show, sponsored by the United Methodist Women at St. Mark's, will display quilts in both the sanctuary and social hall at 3502 Clairemont Drive. Vendors of handcrafted items will sell their wares on the church patio. Vendors may reserve a space for $40.

The church's Ties of Love quilt group will provide a snack bar to raise funds for more quilting supplies. They make lap quilts for persons with serious illnesses.  In the past they also created twin-sized quilts for Storefront, a shelter for homeless teens; New Entra Casa, a home for women ex-offenders; and Just In Time, which supports youth aging out of foster care.

Admission to the show is $5. No fee is required to enter quilts in the show. Quilt sales are optional, but a 10% commission is expected from any quilt sold during the show.  Proceeds will support UMW projects serving women, children, and youth worldwide. 

For further information, quilt entry forms, or vendor registration call Dorothy at 858-277-2917 or Phyllis at 858-278-3563.
