The Twenty Fifth annual Andover Quilt Show was a wonderful event, with over 50 entries in four categories. Golden Needle Awards were voted for Hand Quilted, Miscellaneous Items, Wall Hangings and Full-Size Quilts. Attendees had the opportunity to purchase chances on the magnificent "Children's Literature Quilt" for which a winner will be drawn December 8th. The"Children's Literature" Quilt was machine quilted by Barb Jordan Kaszar. It is a large wall hanging/lap quilt, donated by the Covered Bridge Stitchers to the Andover Public Library Friends as a fund-raiser. Tickets are available at the Circulation Desk for $1 each.


The Winner of the Hand-Quilted entry was Patty Owens. The Miscellaneous Item Golden Needle Award went to Leah Harding for her round butterfly design. Venie Hinson won the Golden Needle Award for her Full-Sized Quilt entry. Sandy Lord won the Golden Needle Award for her exquisite flower Wall Hanging.


Two quilt stores had large displays for participants to enjoy: Megen's Quilt Parlor of Albion, PA and The Gallery of Mercer PA.
