The show will be in the Oscar Erickson building at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds, 4907 Landes St.
Admission is a $5 donation.
Demonstrations of hand and machine quilting, as well as piecing, are planned.
Vendor booths with fabrics, books, patterns and machines from shops around the North Olympic Peninsula also will be available.
A special display of quilts that are donated to Hospice of East Jefferson County and Child Protective Services in Port Townsend will be at the show.
Last year, Cabin Fever Quilters donated a total of 130 quilts to those causes.
Refreshments will be available for purchase during the show.
This year’s featured quilter is Kathy Stavney of Port Hadlock.
She is a past president of Cabin Fever Quilters and has served in many other capacities.
Her quilts will be front and center stage.
Tickets will be available for the 2012 raffle quilt.
This year’s quilt, “The Goose Has Left the Pond,” by Larisa Keys, has a neutral color palette of creams, browns and a bit of cranberry.
More than 20 members created this year’s quilt.
It is 90 inches by 90 inches square and will fit either a queen- or king-size bed.
The drawing will be held at 5 p.m. Saturday. Tickets are $1 each, the same price they were 32 years ago.
