Quilters United in Learning Together will host the annual “Airing of the Quilts” for their May 24 meeting.
Weather permitting, quilters will display their work along the rail fence at 3302 W. Perry Road in Rogers, near Target and Pinnacle Hills Promenade.
The roots of airings go deep in American’s history. Pioneer women would take their utilitarian quilts outside to air after a long winter.
The meeting begins at 6 p.m., and members and their guests are asked to bring a side dish, place setting and a chair. Those displaying quilts are reminded to bring something to put under the quilt in order to protect them.
Visitors are welcome to drive by and look at the colorful display.
QUILT’s regular meetings are the fourth Thursday of the month, except in May and November and December when the meetings are combined on the first Thursday of December. Meetings are at the Springdale Holiday Inn, 1500 S. 40th St., at 7 p.m.
