FAIRVIEW — The city of Fairview will host the Fairview Quilt & Craft Show on Saturday.

The annual event will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., at John Q. Hammons Community Center, Fairview. The public is invited to attend.

“This will be the last year for the Willing Workers (being involved with it),” said Della Cline. “She (Mary Ann Hill, president of the group) wanted it to go at least 65 years, which this is the 65th year, that the Willing Workers have been in existence.”

This event – according to Cline – was a fundraiser for the Willing Workers and it will go on as a fundraiser, but for the city.

The daylong event includes a bake sale, crafts and quilts, door prizes – drawings held every hour and must be present to win. Lunch will also be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

“There is a quilt that the Willing Workers and that ticket will be drawn that day,” she said. “We also have that abstract by Brittney Blankenship (a 2014 East Newton High School graduate) that they are having a silent auction on.”

Blankenship, a local artist, donated the painting to the Fairview Library. She is currently attending Crowder College. Silent bids will be taken on the painting through noon on Saturday. The highest bidder will then be announce and may take the painting home with them.

Cline said that in the past, the show has drawn a great crowd.

“We have about 20 tables and they are all full,” Cline said. “We usually have a really good crowd.”
