By From page A8 | June 18, 2014

WINTERS — The downtown district will transform into a walking art show this weekend with the 6th Annual Winters Outdoor Quilt and Textile Art Festival.

Visitors can view more than 160 quilts that have been entered into the festival from quilters in Solano, Yolo, Sacramento and Sutter counties, according to a festival press release. Those who attend can vote on their favorites by depositing completed Viewers’ Choice ballots at Cloth Carousel, located at 9 Main St.

Local vendors and nonprofits will have booths at Rotary Park, located at the corner of East Main Street and Railroad Avenue. They include Project Linus of Yolo County, The Applique Society and the Flying Needle’s Quilters Guild. A display by the Winters Modern Quilt Group can be seen on the stage at the Winters Community Center, 201 Railroad Ave.

The festival takes place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. It’s presented by the city, the Winters Chamber of Commerce and local business Cloth Carousel.

Registration takes place at the Winters Visitor Center at 11 Main St., where the first 200 guests will receive a Winters water bottle and all guests will receive their Viewers’ Choice ballots.
