Quilts, Quilts and More Quilts
There are usually over 400 quilts displayed at the BHQG Quilt Show.
The 2017 Show featured vendors from all over the country, offering fabrics, embellishments, patterns, books and more.
Project Warmth, the charity outreach division of the quilter's guild, sells baby quilts and larger quilts, as well as smaller items, to raise money for its work. A silent auction to benefit Hospice House of the Black Hills offers handmade little quilts and quilted objects, from true miniatures to table runners, along with other unique items.
BH Quilters Treasures offers items for sale by members and other people, including hand-made creations as well as fabric and various quilting/sewing supplies and equipment that are no longer needed by the seller.
