Molalla Quilt Show features more than quilts

PEGGY SAVAGE - A visitor inspects one of many quilts hanging on display in the Dibble House.The Molalla Quilt Show opened today to sunshine that promises to last the weekend -- perfect weather for strolling through Molalla's Dibble House Museum Complex to check out the displays of quilts and more.

The combination of old and new quilts is always a colorful treat for Mothers Day, and this could be the perfect weather to enjoy the event with moms, grandmas and the entire family.

Hours Friday are from noon to 4 p.m. On Saturday and Sunday, hours are from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Dibble House Museum complex, 620 S. Molalla Avenue, in Molalla.

The event, a Molalla Tradition, is presented by the Molalla Area Historical Society, and this is a major fundraiser for the museum each year.

Live music at the event will be provided by Heartstrings, playing on Saturday. Rob and Nancy Downie enjoy playing their hammer dulcimer and flutes in historical landmarks throughout Oregon. They will have their CDs available for sale.

Country Bumpkin Quilting will be on site as a vendor, with loads of fat quarters. Sandy Nelson from Canby Quilts will have many of her elegant handmade quilts in the show. Exotic Wood Turnings by Shawn will be selling lovely hand-turned wooden items.

Prizes and snacks will be available, and of course the historic museum buildings will be open to visitors. Admission is by donation (suggested donation is $5-10), and all donations go to support the upkeep on the museum building.
