The Rio Grande Valley Quilt Guild will hold its annual quilt show from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, Feb. 24 and Saturday, Feb. 25, at the McAllen Convention Center.

Hundreds of handmade quilts, along with several wall hangings, baby quilts and table runners, will be sold and auctioned.

Dozens of vendors will be set up at the show selling and displaying furniture, sewing machines, supplies and fabric.
