Our name suggests tradition, but our biennial quilt show is broad,  and is neither juried nor judged. The efforts of each individual quilter, whether beginner or experienced – traditionalist, modern, or art quilter – are equally valued and enjoyed on their own merits.

Make a day of it and visit the fascinating Rosie the Riveter/WWII Home Front National Historical Park, immediately adjacent to the Craneway Pavilion, or take a stroll on the Bay Trail after you see the show.
