Hopewell Valley Quilters are planning their annual Pennington Day show to be held on May 20 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Toll Gate Grammar School cafeteria. The quilts on display are made by members and reflect a great variety of styles, from beautiful traditional patterns to contemporary works of fiber art.
This year’s show will include two special exhibits. The Quilters challenged themselves to make small quilts with “Houses” as a theme. The challenge quilts incorporate this theme in creative and diverse ways. Pennington Day falls this year on Armed Forces Day. A special display of red, white and blue quilts will pay tribute to those who serve our country.
Viewers will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite quilt in the show. The Viewers’ Choice Prize has been donated by Pennington Quilt Works. Admission to the show is only $1.00, and proceeds benefit Pennington Day 2017.
Toll Gate Grammar School is located on the corner of S. Main Street and E. Curlis Avenue in Pennington. Entry to the show is on the north side of the school building.
