20th EAA quilt gathering this week

Attendees from all over the world come to Oshkosh to celebrate aviation, and some also plan to participate in the 20th annual EAA Quilt Gathering on Thursday, July 31, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Last year over 500 people came to the Quilt Gathering, some as far as Australia. "Meeting and greeting people from all over the world is one highlight of the gathering," Lakeside Quilters’ Guild Vice President Mary Lark said.

This year’s theme for the Quilt Gathering is red, white, and blue, and there are eight different categories. Plus, eight vendors will be set up during the event to showcase their materials.

Many miscellaneous items have been donated and will be given out as door prizes every hour. Attendees can also enter in a raffle to win a quilt, place bids in a silent auction, and much more.

The event is taking place at the Oshkosh Senior Center Annex building located off of AirVenture grounds at 200 North Campbell Rd. AirVenture attendees and others can take the Oshkosh Transit System for transportation to and from the event. It’s free to anyone.
