Close to 400 Valley residents made their way to Turner Ashby High School just on Saturday. The Guild, which has about 150 members all across the Valley, hosts the show every two years. It takes about two years to make some of the quilts. Organizers say the response from the community this year has been great.
"They're all excited about the quilts that we have and especially the art quilts we have. We have some art quilts, and we have chally wall hangings that are made with twall, and we have a challenge block. Our next quilt will be made from them," says Bobby Champaigne.
The members also sold raffle tickets. The winner gets a free quilt. Some of the proceeds from the tickets will also benefit the Shenandoah hospice.
