FAIRFIELD – The Northside Strippers Quilt Club will hold a quilt show on Friday, Dec. 6, in the First United Methodist Church in Fairfield.

The show will last from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. The public is invited to enter a quilt for the show. There is no charge to come to the event to view the quilts. Quilts must be picked up between 8:15-9 p.m. If you cannot pick up your quilt during this time, please make arrangements with someone else to pick it up.

Club member Judie Herzog said that more than 100 quilts will be on display at the show, which the club has hosted every other year for the past 25 years.

Those who wish to have a quilt featured in the show should send information to Jeanie Belgarde so she can make a tag for the quilt with the person’s name, city and name of quilt pattern. Quilts should be delivered to First United Methodist Church between 12:30-3:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 5. Quilts can be any size from a twin bed to a king-sized bed.

During the show, the club will announce a “Viewer’s Choice” award.

A special feature of the quilt show will be the presentation of a number of Honor Quilts to local veterans. Those will be presented at 6:30 p.m. Dec. 6. Herzog said those quilts are often patriotic colors of red, white and blue.

Residents can come for the quilt show and stay for a meal, because that very evening the First United Methodist Church is hosting a tenderloin meal from 5-7 p.m.
