SMITHVILLE — The annual Festival of Quilts will return from 1 to 7 p.m. Sept. 20, and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sept. 21, at First Christian Church in Smithville, 201 N. Bridge St. The show will be held in conjunction with the annual Smithville Old Fashioned Street Faire on Sept. 21.

In addition to a Town and Country Quilters Guild display of more than 60 quilts, quilters from the surrounding community are invited to display their quilts during the show.

Quilts will be accepted on a space-available basis. The entry deadline for submission is Sept. 9.

To patch in more fun during the event, attendees will have an opportunity to vote on their favorite quilts for viewer’s choice awards.

Guild will also have notions for purchase at the boutique during the show. Additionally, there will be raffles for themed baskets of quilting supplies and a grand drawing for the Opportunity Quilt made by guild members.

Those interested in entering their self-made quilts can contact the guild at 392-2676, get an entry form from any guild member or pick up an entry form at the Smithville Chamber of Commerce office, located at 105 W. Main St.
