The Buckhorn Area Quilters’ Guild has hosted popular quilt shows in September of alternate years in the Buckhorn area from 2008 to 2016. The beautiful outdoor setting of this venue adds to the charm of the quilt show. Many vendors are in the small buildings.
We are looking forward to seeing all of our friends and visitors in 2018 when we will be hosting our next Quilt Show. So mark the dates of September 7, 8 and 9, 2018 on your calendars and plan to join us!
