IRON MOUNTAIN - Members of the Spinning Spools Quilt Guild are busy getting ready for their Quilt Walk 2012 Quilt Show at Bay West College in Iron Mountain.
The show will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on April 28. They will have vendors with crafts, books and magazines for sale, refreshments and door prizes.
The prize quilt is a queen size Cabin in the Woods. The center was hand appliqued by Karen Lawton of Dunbar, Wis. Other members machine pieced the blocks and Marilyn Heimke of Florence, Wis., long armed the quilt.
This is the only fundraiser the group does. They use the money to purchase fabric and batting and other supplies for making quilt for patients with cancer and they also provide a quilt for families that receive a Habitat for Humanity home.
Also in attendance will be members of the Woodbee Carvers who will be showing, and some will be selling their carvings. The Woodbee Carvers are a group of carvers who meet locally once a month. The club held an annual show in Iron Mountain for several years until the closing of the Premiere Center.
The group has 50 members who work with many different carving styles. Several members are nationally recognized for the work produced. Among these is a variety of caricatures, birds, cottonwood bark and many novelty carvings.
