AN EXHIBIT OF hand-crafted quilts is the highlight of the "Quilt Show Extravaganza" 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at Marley Middle School, 7730 Baltimore-Annapolis Blvd.

The show, sponsored by the Friendship Quilters Guild, has attracted participants from throughout the area, including the Baltimore Applique Society and International Quilts.

Admission is $3.

Quilting techniques and hints will be demonstrated, and quilting-related items will be on sale. Visitors can buy a $1 chance on a raffle of a quilt that has the "Iris Medallion" design.

Lynn Kampe, a charter member of Friendship Quilters, said the exhibition is not a sale. Some of the pieces are family heirlooms. One quilt has an appraised value of $20,000.

Ms. Kampe hopes the show will focus attention on the resurgence in quilting as a hobby and social activity.

Friendship Quilters is a group of 100 or so crafters of all ages. The group meets at 7 p.m. the second Thursday of each month at St. John's Lutheran Church in Linthicum. For information on the show or the group, call Ms. Kampe at 766-6010.
