Featured Quilter and Guild member Margaret Tzitz, age 92, will showcase a body of her work created over the past 50 years. Her broad interests are depicted in her quilts, ranging from traditional to modern, and sometimes a blend of both. Her many award-winning quilts are cherished by family and friends. Margaret is an active member of the Crown Point Guild. She is also a member of the Heritage Quilters of South Suburbia in South Holland, IL.

A Bed Turning will take place on Saturday, at 10:30 am, by well-known local quilter, Donna Zelesky. She will present her quilts in a Show & Tell style of quilts with an accompanying commentary. Donna is a prolific quilter with an eclectic body of work to share.

Other special exhibits within the show will delight attendees.

A Pop-Up Gift Shop will feature one-of-a-kind home sewn, quilted, home décor, and handmade items for sale, including quilts. One of these items could be a perfect gift for Christmas, a wedding, birthday, retirement, or just yourself. A non-sewer can adorn their home with the comfort and beauty of a unique quilted item made by Guild members. Cash and major credit cards accepted.
