Towpath Quilt Guild Annual Show

Bridge Street

The Towpath Quilt Guild’s biannual quilt show is coming up, set to feature over 150 handmade quilts.

Show co-chair Gaynell Dorrance says that the guild works within the community throughout the year. “Every year we do a project that benefits a group in Syracuse,” she said, citing past groups and projects such as McMahon Ryan Child Advocacy group and floor mats for Meals on Wheels.

At the quilt show, guild members can display their most recent work. Guild Historian Shirley Robinson said that a wide range of quilt work is available to see, allowing the public to learn about the many aspects of modern quilting.

In addition to the quilt show, the Canastota Canal Museum is hosting an exhibit on 100 years of vintage and antique quilts.

“I think there’s a little bit of an artist in each of us and we have to find what venue we’re going to apply that to,” Robinson said on why quilting has been and remained so popular with both men and women. “Quilting gives people the opportunity to put together colors and try a different way of executing design.”

The quilt show, titled Blooms Along the Towpath, runs Friday July 12 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday July 13 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Canastota High School. Admission is $6 and for more information, you can visit
