— Members of the Central Idaho Quilters’ Guild are making plans for the 23rd annual quilt show to be held in conjunction with Kamiah’s 81st Annual Free Barbecue festivities. The show will be held at St. Catherine’s Church, located at Idaho and 7th streets. Show hours are Saturday, Sept. 2, from 10 a.m., to 5 p.m., and Sunday, Sept. 3, from 10 a.m., to 3 p.m.

Entries are welcome from anyone who would like to share their quilts and /or quilted items. There is no item limit unless there is an unusually high volume of entries. Antique quilts are also sought for display; must be at least 60 years old.

Obtain an entry form at Kamiah Community Library, Northwest Freedom Credit Union in Kamiah and Kooskia, or by calling one of the numbers listed below.

Entries will be accepted Wednesday, Aug. 30, 5 to 7 p.m., and Thursday, Aug. 31, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., at St Catherine’s Church (at the side basement entrance across from the swimming pool.) No entries will be accepted after 1 p.m., on Thursday to allow time for display setup. Utmost care will be taken with all entries.
