Kimi Coates is the featured quilter at the show, Crazy About Quilts, and visitors can expect to see Coates’ many talents on display: quilts, soft-sculptured dolls, and more. Largely a self-taught quilter, Coates took up quilting as an easy way to create a cozy home décor. She took inspiration from Country Living and favors Civil War reproduction fabrics and a primitive Americana style.
The Quincy Crazy Quilters Guild promotes the art of quilting, a uniquely American handicraft, to preserve quilt making for future generations. Each year, guild members assist the fair with hanging the quilt entries in the Tulsa Scott building, as well as participating in the fair’s Americana Festival each Labor Day weekend.
The guild’s community outreach efforts focus on making and donating Cuddle Quilts to local aid agencies. Those agencies have distributed more than 900 quilts to people in the community who have experienced illness or loss in their lives or the lives of their friends and families.
The guild meets monthly at 6 p.m. every third Thursday at Christian Life Fellowship Church, 317 First St., in East Quincy. For more information about the Quincy Crazy Quilters, call guild president Donna Meyers at 836-0844. For more information about the quilt show, call Carolyn Kenney at 283-2954.
