Every handmade quilt has a story. Discover dozens of new tales at "A Little Quilt Show" at the ABQ BioPark Botanic Garden Showroom. On Saturday, March 23 from 10 a.m.- 2 p.m., a large collection of miniature quilts, including doll and infant quilts, will be on display.

View the tiny quilts and watch demonstrations by the New Mexico Quilters Association, who present a show each March as part of National Quilting Month. You can also see an antique quilting machine at work, and visit the artists to learn more about stitching, styles and stories.

"The Showroom will be a fun and colorful place on Saturday with dozens of little quilts hanging from clotheslines," said Tallie Segel, Botanic Garden Education Coordinator. "Miniature quilts can help beginners learn the basic skills and they can also demonstrate the great skill and detail work of master quilters."

The New Mexico Quilters Association also demonstrates at the Heritage Farmhouse on the second Wednesday of every month. The quilt show and monthly demonstrations are included with regular admission. For more information about the show, email [email protected] or call 505-848-7180.
