Where's Bob?

Garden Quilt Show is back

Back by demand, Reiman Gardens' Garden Quilt Show returns Aug. 5-7: Friday and Saturday (9 a.m.-6 p.m.) and Sunday (11 a.m.-4 p.m.). The event includes a Friday afternoon lecture and two Saturday classes with Minnesota quilter and quilting author Susan Stein, a vendors marketplace and a juried quilt show with entries by artists from across the Midwest. Pictured is "Butterfly Garden" by Janet Pittman of West Des Moines.

Regular gardens admission ($8 adults, $7 seniors, $4 youth, free for members and ISU students) gets you into the quilt show; lectures and classes require preregistration and prepayment. Beverages, popcorn, ice cream and cookies will be available for purchase and proceeds directly benefit the gardens. Submitted photo.
