"Meander through quilts in Leavenworth."

artist Kate Carroll of Anaconda, Mont. will be displayed at the show, as well.
Visitors to Leavenworth will find numerous quilts displayed
throughout the community those six days. There is no fee to take in the beauty
of the quilt-making.
A grand showing, though, is scheduled for Sept. 10-12, and
admission is set at $5.
Quilting workshops will also be offered Sept. 10-12.

After getting signed to A&M records by Herb Alpert and
Jerry Moss, Mendes and his band toured with Alpert's Tijuana Brass, making him
a household name in the U.S. and Europe.
