Annual Quilt Show Saturday …

These were some of the quilts on display during the 2014 PEO Quilts in the Country Show in Meeker. The 2015 PEO Quilts in the Country show has been set for Friday and Saturday, running during the Meeker Classic Championship Sheepdog Trials. The quilts will be on display from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday and from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Saturday at the Fairfield Center, 200 Main. Old and new quilts are the center point for this show, featuring dozens of quilts made by mostly local hands. The proceeds from the $3 entry fee will benefit educational assistance and opportunities for women. In addition to the quilts on display, the PEO is again holding one of Meeker’s favorite fall events with its Country Bake Sale.


PEO is a philanthropical education organization. The PEO raises money for scholarships locally and nationally. This photo was taken May 11 after the dinner at Richards Hall in which all senior girls are honored, and 2015 is the group’s 95th year. Receiving the English award was Brittany Smith and receiving the math/science award was Regan Pearce for highest grade point averages over four years in those subjects.

Meeker Quilt Show…

Meeker’s P.E.O. Chapter BA held its annual Quilt Show on Friday and Saturday at the Fairfield Center in Meeker, and there were more than 130 quilts on hand, embellished by some fine antiques. The quilt show’s Viewers’ Choice went to a quilt by Lee Light of Meeker, hanging above right, and a drawing was held for a quilt to give away, and that quilt was won by Bea Blanke of Meeker.

Seeds of ideas “sewn” in P.E.O.

MEEKER I The seed was first “sewn” a few years ago. It was but a spark of an idea that our small town of Meeker could host a show featuring the unique handiwork of quilters from across the northwest corner of our state.
