The 2018 Harvest of Colors: A Members’ Showcase Quilt Show, sponsored by the Coastal Quilters Guild of Santa Barbara and Goleta will feature the quilted creations of some 200 guild members.

Honoring the 30th anniversary of the guild and its 30 years of donating locally, the biennial show will run 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 15, and Sunday, Sept. 16, at Earl Warren Showgrounds in Santa Barbara.

Weekend passes, good for both days, are $10 at the door and children under 12 can enter at no charge. Parking is free; both the lot and entrance are handicap accessible.

Traditional, modern and art quilts will be on display. Visitors to the show will be able to vote for their favorite quilt in the Viewer’s Choice competition.

This year’s special exhibit will be quilts from Freddy Moran featuring her Face the Year quilts. Moran is a teacher, lecturer, artist and award-winning quilt maker. She is known for her use of bold color and considers red a neutral.

Other highlights include quilting demonstrations, a gift boutique with items crafted by members, and some 20 vendors in the merchant mall.

Raffle tickets for a Singer Featherweight as well as baskets of goodies (quilt related and not) will be available with drawings both days. The winner need not be present. Proceeds from raffle tickets and the show will help fund the guild’s community projects.

Over the last three decades, guild members have made thousands of quilts and other hand-crafted items for more than 30 local nonprofits.

This year’s show will include a Community Quilts display featuring some of the groups that have received donations including Unity Shoppe, Hillside House, Visiting Nurse & Hospice Care, Serenity House, Meals on Wheels, and SB Shelter for Women.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
