Quilt Tour 2016
In November, we will be having the first Menomonie Quilt Festival which includes our Quilt Tour, the semi-annual fundraiser for The Bridge to Hope. We have a full slate of activities planned for quilters of all skill levels including classes on Nov 10 and 11 (Beginning Quilting, Scrappy Zipper Dot Pouch, Folded Star Trivet).
The Quilt Festival will be two days before the quilt tour which will include classes, bus tour, Laurie Aaron Hird, creator of “The Farmer’s Wife” quilts, will be speaking on Friday. And on Saturday, November 12, the “Quilt Tour” will be held throughout Menomonie, similar to a garden tour. This event features over 400 quilts on exhibit at four Menomonie churches, and includes vendors, demos, lunch at Cedar Brook Church, and shops featuring handmade items at Cedar Brook and First Congregational Church.
For those who want to stay overnight, Menomonie offers 8 hotels from which to choose. When reserving your room, mention that you’re coming for the Festival and a gift bag will be waiting for you when you arrive.
