Quilt show and sale

Examine antique and contemporary quilts at the Sully Quilt Show and Sale Sunday at Historic Sully in Chantilly, Va. Sixty-five vendors from across the country will offer their wares. "Harmony with Nature" will exhibit quilts created mostly by mid-19th century Virginia quilters using colorful designs and themes borrowed from nature.

Demonstrations of quilting techniques, verbal quilt appraisals, craft displays, music, food and children's activities are also part of the Northern Virginia festival. And one lucky winner will go home with a hand-stitched, door-prize quilt.

Festival hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Historic Sully, a park and mansion operated by the Fairfax County Park Authority, is on Route 28, 4 1/2 miles south of Washington Dulles International Airport. Admission is $6 for adults, $5 seniors and $3 children. Call 703-437-1794. It's tea time at the newly restored Carriage House Gallery at the Physick Estate in Cape May, N.J., when "Traditions in Elegance," a teapot exhibit from England's Norwich Castle Museum, opens tomorrow with guest Samuel H.G. Twining playing host to a public gala reception from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

The 100 teapots in the exhibition are examples culled from the Twinings Teapot Gallery's collection of some 3,000 teapots. The exhibition also explores the custom of tea preparation and tea drinking in English life from the 18th through 20th centuries with a full range of events and programs, including tea tastings, lectures and seminars.

The exhibit runs through Jan. 4. Hours vary. The Carriage House Gallery is at 1048 Washington St. Admission to the exhibit is $2. Admission is included with the purchase of tickets for events and seminars. Call 609-884-5404.
