Quilt show entries due

March and April will feature the eighth annual quilt show, sponsored by the Sturgis Area Arts Council, at the Sturgis Public Library. The show will be open for viewing during the library's regular hours. Viewers can vote for their favorite quilt in the Viewer's Choice Award. Because space is limited, no quilts larger than full size will be accepted. Each quilter may enter up to two items in the show. Quilts must be taken to the library by Feb. 28. Securely attach owner's name and phone number to each item. For more information, contact Ruth Mechling at 720-2293 or Marilyn Bates at 720-3189 at
