Gold Bug Quilters show benefits El Dorado County high school and college students
This years’ Gold Bug Quilters show will be held at the Cameron Park Community Services District Community Center, 2502 Country Club Drive in Cameron Park, on Sept. 5, 6 and 7. Show hours on Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sunday, Sept. 7 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Admission is $7 and includes all three days with gentlemen and children admitted free.
The quilt organization will feature an opportunity quilt “Tree of Paradise” pieced by members of the guild and quilted by Susan Krinks, along with many quilts made by the members.
There will also be more than a dozen vendors from the area with everything from quilting machines to thread rippers.
The public is invited to come out and support local quilters and take part in the voting for the favorite quilt, visit the country store, take part in the silent auction, check out the basket raffle, see demonstrations, enjoy good food and have a chance to win the opportunity quilt. The proceeds benefit the scholarship fund for El Dorado County high school and college students.
Gentlemen will have the opportunity to vote for “Gentlemen’s Choice.”
