Held annually in July, the Kenai River Quilt Tour showcases a variety of quilts made by local artists. As you visit each of the participating locations, you will see the beautiful quilts on display and receive a stamp for your Kenai Quilt Walk passport at each location with no purchase necessary. Additionally each business has donated a prize worth $100 or more! Collect at least 12 stamps and return your completed passport to Robin Place Fabrics or the Soldotna Visitor Center by July 31st and you’ll have a chance to win a prize package! The idea of Quilting on the Kenai creator Pat Reese of Robin Place Fabric the walk is a joint venture with the Soldotna Chamber of Commerce and will continue through the month of July. “There are 14 businesses that came together to place a unique quilt in each location for display and an example of the talent of our local quilting artists. Any of the shops have a passport with a map on the back that makes each location easy to find and with 12 stamps a chance to some really great prizes and if you’re visiting from out of town your prize will be shipped to your home,” explained Reese.
