If you are an IHQ member, you already got an email about the IH Flea Market needing help – to get set up and work at the Flea Market Sat & Sun. OK, sure we always ask for extra help – BUT we don’t need “extra” help, WE NEED HELP – PERIOD! Many of our regular helpers have been set back by health issues, they had the gall to move away, or whatever – they are not working this year.
There are 2 years worth of wonderful treasures to sort and price and sell. This is the Ebbett’s Pass Community Center (a.k.a. The Hall) primary fundraiser that did not raise funds last year due to you-know-what. PLEASE help us have a successful Flea Market this year, and volunteer to help out, or spend the weekend buying treasures and tickets to win a gorgeous quilt.
We need your help, come on Monday, August 2 through Thursday, August 5 from8:30-2PM. Next week is the last week we have to get ready. We also need a lot of help during the event:
Saturday, Aug 7, 2021, 8AM-4PM Sunday August 8, 2021, 9AM-3PM
For more information, please call: Board Member Margaret Zavertnik @795-7668, or 770-7668

It is just me, the IHQ Guild Webmistress & Photographer.
Only a couple of weeks remain before August 5th & 6th, and the Flea Market is open for business. We dare you to stop by and not fall in love with something! Many more items aside from clothing and linens. Like Kitchenware, Toys, Art, Books, Books, Books & towers of Puzzles…
Maybe the living is easy in summer – someplace, that isn’t Arnold. Our focus is different as our weekly Guild meetings stop (until Sept. 4th), and the Flea Market readiness work begins at Independence Hall.
The Annual Flea Market at Ebbetts Pass Community Center, a.k.a. “The Hall”, is held the first full weekend in August. The fact that getting ready for the event takes half of June and all of July, speaks volumes. The local communities bring donations to the Hall throughout the year.
It’s a challenge to work in the Textiles room. Tons of fabrics, bedding, towels, and sewing notions. You just can’t beat $1.00 per yard…
It’s that time when the Independence Hall Quilters Guild takes their summer break and the Community Center begins setting up for the annual Flea Market (first weekend in August)
The Quilt Guild’s last meeting is June 20th, then we start back up on Labor Day Monday, September 5th. And what do we do in the months in between? Well, we help with the flea market effort, work on comfort quilt kits that we “checked out”, and then there are our own quilts we entered into the quilt show to finish and sew sleeves on the back for hanging them on frames.
