Orange County Fair July 11 - August 10. The FGQG has had an exhibit at the Orange County Fair for many years. In our booth in the Home Arts Building volunteers demonstrate how quilts are made and sometimes present a trunk show on stage. It’s always an invigorating day, showing people some of the projects we work on, especially our philanthropy work.
Come see the FGQG at the Fair next year.
We look forward to this active year and displaying our fabulous work.
