The Pella Area Quilters Guild is hosting two professional quilt appraisers this Tuesday and Wednesday. The event will take place at the Third Reformed Church on Tuesday from 1pm to 4pm, and Wednesday from 8am to 3pm. Co-Chair of the Guild, Phyllis Zylstra, tells KNIA/KRLS that for $35 any new or antique quilt can be appraised by the two women who travel the state doing this. She says the main purpose is for insuring your quilt. Zylstra adds that they will also be holding their monthly meeting at 7pm Tuesday and the public is welcome to attend. She concludes by saying that quilting is a hobby that allows a creative outlet, provides personal satisfaction, and gives many people an opportunity to build lasting friendships.
