Labor of Love Quilt Show – 6th annual. The quilters of Shelter Cove have been hard at work all year getting ready for the annual indoor/outdoor Show. In Shelter Cove, our quilt show is unique in that bed size quilts will be hung from the Cape Mendocino Lighthouse at Mal Coombs Park and the balconies of the houses on Upper and Lower Pacific Drive. Visitors can drive through the quaint sea side community and see the quilts right from their car! Sunlight intensifies the colors and highlights the quilting details.
Antique & smaller quilts will be displayed indoors at the Community Clubhouse or at the Lighthouse safe from the elements.
Returning this year will be a quilter’s corner where you can shop for handmade gifts from our artists as well as quilt related items of interest to quilters & non-quilters alike.
Quilting continues to grow in popularity as an art form. Since American colonial days, quilts were made from worn clothing and scraps to keep families warm. Today’s quilts are bright & cheerful, modern & traditional, commemorate events & raise awareness for important causes all while reflecting the joy and passion of the artist.
Especially popular with children, we’ll be bringing back the popular treasure hunt where participants look for specific items displayed in the quilts.
If you are interested in showing your quilts, applications are available on our website www.LaborofLoveQuiltShow.com and will be accepted through August 20, 2019 or by calling Linda at 707-987-3336 or Nancy at 707-986-7120.
