Garden Quilt Show in Lake Park

The Garden Quilt Show in Lake Park, held Aug. 22 this year, raises money for the Families Forever Scholarships. Two $500 scholarships are given each year to area young women.

Quilts are displayed only, not for sale, voted on and five prizes are given based on the viewer's choice. This year's top prize is a $100 gift certificate to the Back Porch Quilt Shop in Detroit Lakes.

This is the 3rd year for this event. In the last two years, 100 quilts have been displayed each year. Besides viewing and voting on the quilts, there are gardens to tour and tea is served. This year a light lunch will be offered for sale.

The Garden Quilt Show and Tea, Lake Park, is Aug. 22 from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Call Peggy Stellmach at 218-234-1766 or 218-238-5236 or email for more information or for an entry blank. Quilts need to be to organizers by Aug. 17. There is no entry fee. A $5 donation is suggested to attend.
