The show will also include a youth category for those 16 and under. The fee for non-members is $15 per entry.

The quilt guild has embroidery and sewing classes at different locations during the month, informative programs during the meetings and hands-on classes after the meetings. Guild memberships are available for $20 per year.

The quilt guild meets at 10 a.m., the first Friday of each month at the Grove Community Center.
