quilt show

Debbie Stanton, formerly of Pine, created this quilt as part of the 12th Annual Rim Country Quilt Roundup in 2016 at the Mazatzal Hotel & Casino.

The Rim Country Quilt Roundup is less than two weeks away. This year’s event is now titled the Tommie Cline Martin Memorial Rim Country Quilt Roundup. It takes place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Friday, Nov. 12 and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 13 at the Mazatzal Hotel & Casino Exhibition Hall.

The quilt show honors the memory of longtime Gila County Dist. 1 Supervisor Tommie Cline Martin, who gave it her support each year. Martin was a Payson native and the daughter of two Gila County pioneer families, the Haughts and the Clines. She passed away in early December 2020, just shy of her 70th birthday.
