The North Central Washington Quilt and Fiber Art Festival, Sept. 8 and 9 at the Town Toyota Center in Wenatchee, will feature a wide array of work made by the area’s quilters and fiber artists.

The new annual event takes the place of the former Harvest of Quilts presented by the NCW Quilt Guild. Festival chair Geraldine Warner said the guild made the change to reflect an event that showcases everything from the latest in textile art to traditional patchwork quilts.

The 2017 festival will feature more than 300 pieces, some by quilters and artists who are exhibiting regionally and nationally. A silent auction will feature 13 artistic quilts with an earth, wind, fire and water theme with proceeds to benefit the local Mobile Meals.

The featured artist at this year’s festival is Pat Koehler of Wenatchee. Pat uses a folk art and vintage style in quilting and embroidery, and the frivolity and whimsey of doll making.

Jim Tharpe of Seattle is to bring a display of his family’s quilts dating back to the 1800s, along with family photos and histories. Some of the quilts were made by family members who were slaves and include folklore stories and connection to historical events.
