The Lake Superior Modern Quilt Guild (LSMQG) invites the public to its first ever quilt show to be held throughout the month of March.
The LSMQG’s Modern Quilt Walkabout quilt show will be held March 1-31 in two locations in the Lincoln Park Craft District. This free exhibit of modern quilt artistry will be on display at Duluth Pottery & Tile, 1924 W. Superior St., and Enger Lofts, 1832 W. Superior St.
