Four Seasons Quilters, established in the 1980s in the town of Scriba, will display about 17 quilts, each using a letter of the alphabet as a basis for its design. The 20-member group meets monthly, often using its skills to benefit charities and those in need in the area with hats, mittens, scarves and placemats, as well as quilts.

Oswego State Downtown is open noon to 5 p.m. Wednesday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday during the Oswego Farmers Market, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday.
