Signature event returning to Calhoun County attraction

BLOUNTSTOWN, Fla. (WMBB) – The Panhandle Pioneer Settlement’s signature event of the year, the “Everlasting Stitches” Quilt Show, is returning on Saturday, May 11th to the settlement in Blountstown.

It will run from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. with tickets costing $8 for those 13 and up, and $6 for anyone 12 and under or those with a valid military ID.

The quilts have been made by people all across the Panhandle and prizes will be handed for the best quilt made by a child, best handmade quilt, and best machine-made quilt.

The show continues to return to the settlement due to the excitement it draws from attendees who can learn more about quilting and gather new ideas.

Cycle into some fun this weekend in Panama City

“People like the idea of coming out and seeing the old quilts especially,” Loreen Greer of the Panhandle Pioneer Settlement said. “But to see new ideas, the quilts that people have put together in the past 12 months to get ideas for themselves to copy or work off of.”

Something new to the quilt show this year is an exhibit that shows the process of taking wool from a sheep and turning it into clothing.

The money made from Saturday’s show will be used for funding the settlement’s summer camp and general upkeep of the property.
