Common Thread Quilt Fest, Celebrating Roots: Old Quilts of the North Country
This is an annual community celebration of quilts, and a fundraising event designed to challenge area artists and residents alike to think about the important role art plays in developing creativity and real-world problem-solving skills. The Fest is a community wide event, cosponsored by Common Thread Quilts, the Wanakena Historical Association, and SOS (The Old Schoolhouse), in collaboration with Otto’s Abode, the Wanakena Presbyterian Church, and Bird Haven Quilting. It has four primary components: 1) an interactive educational display at the Wanakena History Center, 2) an old quilt display at the Wanakena Presbyterian Church, 3) a hands-on activities area for kids and adults, and 4) an art challenge silent auction. All ages welcome. Food available. Come help us celebrate!
