last year's show, which displayed over 200 beautiful, locally

first place at the Alaska State Fair.
Another special attraction
of the show this year is the Show Raffle Quilt.
The drawing for the Raffle
will take place on February 16th, at the end of the annual Quilt
Show. Proceeds from the Raffle are used to promote new learning
opportunities for the members and to further the numerous Community
Service activities in which the Guild participates.
