Variety of experience levels at CVEX quilt show

Now into its sixth year, the CVEX quilt show keeps getting bigger and better … at all levels.

The Comox Valley Exhibition promises another wonderful Quilt Show to check out at the fair. Beginners and experienced quilters have entered into a variety of 10 different classes that range from multi-sized bed quilts to wall quilts, wearable items and the ever- popular challenge category – Pioneer Days & Modern Ways. The entrant’s displays of talented skills and creativity are surely to be admired.

Quilt judging will be done by Vancouver Island’s very own world renowned fibre artist and instructor Coreen Zerr who recently, along with Krista Zeghers, received first place in Original Design Realistic Pictorial Wallquilt at the Canadian Quilter Association National Jury Show. As you browse through the show be sure to put your vote in for Viewer’s Choice, and don’t miss the Colour Studies exhibit by guest artists Fiber Art Voices – a Comox Valley fibre artist group.

ABBA and  Fleetwood Mac tributes

Arrival – Canada’s ultimate ABBA tribute band — and Dreams, an authentic sounding, seven-piece tribute to Fleetwood Mac, provide the live musical entertainment at the Comox Valley Exhibition this year, on Friday and Saturday evenings, respectively.

You will be amazed at how close Arrival  looks and sounds like the original ABBA.

The group will take you back in time, so you can experience this amazing music all over again.

Dreams perform in full costumes, similar to the actual styles worn by the original Fleetwood Mac.

This band has performed all over the world.

Shows start at 8 p.m.

Tickets for either show are $20 each, plus fees and taxes.

Tickets can be purchased at www.cvex.ca.
