Each year the Mennonite Community gathers for an open preview of quilts that are going up for auction at the Pennsylvania Relief Sale. It is fun to look at the quilts and often I have gotten good ideas from looking at these quilts
But most of all, we antique and vintage quilt lovers adore the Quilter's Corner available at the preview. You may find wonderful bargains on antique and vintage fabric, ufos, patterns, linens, books and other vintage items. I've even found some assembled pieces there. It's hard to say what exactly is in store for this year's preview in Ephrata but you may see something similar to the beauties on this post.
The preview will be held at the Material Resources Center at 517 Trout Run Road, Ephrata PA 17522 on March 3, 4, 5. Thursday and Friday hours are 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday it is open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. I suggest you go early because the lines start forming WAY before the shop opens.
The 2016 Pennsylvania Relief Sale will be held April 1 and 2 at the Harrisburg Farm Show Complex. For more information you can go to www.pareliefsale.org . Enjoy!
