MERCHANT TRICK OR TREATING, HALLOWEEN STORIES AND PUMPKIN PAINTING IN CLIFTON FORGE ON HALLOWEEN
Sponsored by Clifton Forge Main Street, Clifton Forge Downtown Merchants, Sona Bank, the Historic Masonic Theatre, & Elks Lodge #1065 In an effort to comply with CDC recommendations and to keep the community as safe as possible, downtown trick or treating has been changed to Sona Bank plaza trick or treating. There WILL NOT be trick or treating downtown at the area businesses. Instead the Clifton Forge merchants will have tables set up at the Sona Bank plaza. They will be wearing masks and gloves, be spaced 6 feet apart, and be handing out only prepackaged candy. All trick or treaters are asked to adhere to the traffic flow pattern that will be set up and to wear a CDC approved mask. Stop by the Amphitheatre from 12pm-3pm to hear Halloween stories while the first 100 kids will be able paint their own pumpkin. Trick or treating at the Sona Bank plaza will begin at 3pm and end at 6pm. Come join us in downtown Clifton Forge for a safe a fun Halloween on Saturday, October 31st!
Friday, November 20 at 6PM we will begin our community celebrations in Clifton Forge with an official lighting of the Town Christmas Tree. Enjoy performances by Garlynda's Fancy Feet Dancers and Patsy's Ultimate Dance Explosion Cloggers! Then sing along to Jingle Bells and enjoy some refreshments. In the event of rain the ceremony will be held at 6pm on the 21st.
Join us for something new this year-a "REVERSE" Christmas parade! Participants will be placed along Ridgeway Street while groups will be placed in prominent locations along the way.

We still have a few available for The Ricky Tims Master Class Quilt Retreat February 18 through February 20, 2021
The Ricky Tims Master Class Quilt Retreat February 18 through February 20, 2021
The Ricky Tims Master Class Quilt Retreat offers a comprehensive quilt curriculum for all quilters. This customized event will teach, encourage, inspire, and will most certainly keep you entertained. Ricky demystifies seemingly complex concepts and teaches mastery of unique techniques. The sessions on creativity will show you how to harness the power of the ever-elusive muse of creativity.
The sessions cover improvisational patchwork, no-pins precision curved piecing, design guidelines, color theory, dyeing basics, and machine quilting tips that work for both domestic and long arm. You will learn beautiful outline appliqué and innovative piecing techniques—most of which don’t require a quarter-inch seam! Ricky’s goal is to change how you think when it comes to quilting. He will help you to reevaluate your quilting experience and give you the ability to define who you are as a quilter. The seminar will benefit all quilters—beginners or experienced—traditional or art. In addition to the methods and techniques being taught, there will be plenty of fun projects/patterns for you to consider.
This event will be customized as a one-of-a-kind seminar but is based on Ricky’s popular Quilt Luminarium that has received rave reviews from thousands of quilters from across the country. The 120-page full-color syllabus alone is worth the registration. These are not-for-sale and are only available to registered attendees.
Ricky will also be presenting a concert full of story-telling and piano music Saturday evening at 7:00 pm.
In addition, Ricky will be sharing the ten-year backstory of the creation of Lizzy Albright and the Attic Window, a book featuring a ten-year-old, red-headed, over-imaginative girl. Through the discovery of a family heirloom quilt, Lizzy is transported to an enchanted land where a powerful curse has befallen the kingdom of Ailear. Lizzy and her companions believe they can reverse the curse, but an evil sorceress has other plans. This magical and thrilling story is described as Harry Potter meets Alice in Wonderland meets the Wizard of Oz.
Don’t miss this weekend chocked full of education, inspiration, and entertainment that has been created just for you.
