Quilting is an art that is most often passed down through generations although there are many reasons for taking up the craft. We have some wonderful craftsman(women) in Abilene and they will be displaying their works June 1-2 at the Abilene Civic Center.

For the last 18 years the Abilene Quilters Guild has sponsored the regional quilt show. Not only will you see some beautiful works on display done by local quilters but there will be a variety of classes, vendors, door prizes and more during the two day event.
