The big event for all Palouse Patchers is the annual Quilt Show held in April.  The show has been an annual event since 1981 and just gets better every year.  A beautiful raffle quilt is made each year and tickets are sold at the fair and up to the end of the show.  The raffle quilt is displayed at local businesses and the quilt show.  The lucky winner is drawn near the end of the show.  Proceeds from the show help fund our educational events and are also dispersed to a variety of community organizations with the approval of the membership.

About the Challenge and Award

The Janet Freitag Memorial Challenge and Award was instituted in memory of former Palouse Patcher, Janet Freitag, who died after a long bout with cancer.  Her husband Scott started the Janet Freitag Memorial Endowment Fund and each year a cash award of $50 is given to the winner of the Challenge.  The award money comes from the interest earned by the endowment principal. The Challenge and Award is only for Palouse Patchers members.
