Susan Sanders and Barb Darling, Hill City Quilt Show Coordinators say the festival is for the whole family and kids will have plenty of activities to keep them busy, “kids can color quilt blocks, and can learn how to embroider.”

The long-running quilt show that so many in the community look forward to attending, will have even more to look forward to because the festival will include a special appearance by Quilter Extraordinaire, Vi Colombe who will be showing some tricks and trade secrets that she uses to create some of her star quilts. For those who are unfamiliar with Colombe, originally from Mission has been featured on PBS and in the National Quilters Newsletter, is known for her star quilts and one is prominently displayed at the Crazy Horse Memorial.
