Organizer for the quilt show is Chatsworth native, avid sewer and quilter, Debbie Davenport. She will be showing some of her own quilts, as well as her collection of antique sewing machines and paraphernalia. "We will have all levels and types of quilting in this show," said Davenport. "We want to show that anyone can quilt. You don't have to be an expert to create something meaningful. Of course, we have some expert quilters showing in this exhibit, but quilts are more about the emotion put into them and the thoughts and feelings they evoke than perfect craftsmanship. If this show inspires just one person to start quilting, then we will consider that a huge success!"
