Quilt display at Dangberg

Staff Reports

A quilt bed turning display is Saturday at Dangberg Historic Park.

The Carson Valley Quilt Guild will conduct a bed turning quilt display in a free presentation 10 a.m. Saturday at the Dangberg Home Ranch Historic Park.

A bed turning is an opportunity to share the art and stories of heritage quilts. In this program, members of the guild will display a collection of quilts, share the story of each quilt and discuss the history of quilting.

The presentation is part of the park's Western Arts & Crafts Series and is sponsored by Bently Ranch, SoaringNV, The Record-Courier and the Frances C. and William P. Smallwood Foundation.

The Carson Valley Quilt Guild is a non-profit organization based in Carson Valley whose members live in the surrounding communities. The guild's focus is on education providing yearly scholarships to local students. They also provide charitable quilt donations that serve many in the local community.

This is a free outdoor event. The park is located at 1450 Hwy 88, ¼ mile north of the Carson Valley Veterinary Hospital. Visitors are encouraged to bring a lawn chair or use one of the park's chairs. A shaded seating area is available. Dogs are not permitted in the park, with the exception of certified service animals. For more information, visit dangberghomeranch.org or call 775-783-9417.

Upcoming presentations in the free series include a Dutch oven cooking demonstration by the Northern Sierra Dutch Oven Group on Aug. 22, and the Nevada Gunfighters on Sept. 26.
