Get ready: Quilters are coming.
Also, people like me who admire quilters and their craft.
The Pacific West Quilt Show is scheduled for Aug. 24-26 at the Greater Tacoma Convention & Trade Center. Last year’s show, convention officials said, drew more than 6,000 people.
More than 450 quilts will be displayed, according to a news release from the Association of Pacific West Quilters, which puts together the show. More than 200 of those are contest finalists, competing for $25,000 in cash and prizes.
Also on display: a selection of antique quilts from Skagit County’s La Conner Quilt and Textile Museum.
More than 100 vendors will have booths. People can attend lectures, demonstrations and other events.
The show is open to the public from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Friday and Saturday Aug. 24th and 25th, and on Sunday Aug, 26 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Tickets are $10 a day, with discounts for APWQ and military members. For more information, go to www.apwq.org or call 253-778-6155.
