Third weekend in October (Friday, Saturday, Sunday)
Illinois Valley Senior Center
520 E. River St., Cave Junction
The Senior Center is across the street from Illinois Valley High School. From Grants Pass, follow Highway 199 to Cave Junction. Turn left at the first stop light (River Street – Radio Shack is on the corner). Follow River Street for about a half mile and look for the Senior Center on the left.
This is essentially an art show featuring the talent of Valley Girls Quilt Club members. The show generally has about 100 quilts on exhibit, a “country store” with quilt related items on sale, floor bingo with prizes given to winners, home made desserts and Mark Dickson cooking his world famous Dickson burgers if you want to sit and have lunch.
There is an entrance fee to get into the quilt show and raffle tickets can be purchased if you want to try your luck at winning a quilt made by the club members. All proceeds from the show and raffle go to local youth programs. Proceeds from food sales support the Senior Center.
The club has organized a bus tour from Grants Pass that includes a visit to the quilt show, an opportunity to eat lunch at a local restaurant, wine tasting tour and a visit to the Artober Festival in Kerby before returning to Grants Pass. For more information, visit the Valley Girl Quilt Show Facebook page.
Valley Girls Quilt Show is a nonprofit that supports local youth programs and use their quilting skills for community service work to include producing and donating comfort quilts for victims of fires and other catastrophic events. They recently donated quilts to the Oregon Caves Chateau, an operation managed by the Illinois Valley Community Development Organization (501c3 nonprofit), the only nonprofit concessionaire in the National Park Service. The objective of having quilts in the Chateau is to give visitors to this community a feeling of old-style country hospitality.
