Our Friends of the Library are having their first ever quilt show this summer, and there’s still time to submit your favorite quilt! Quilters can enter their masterpieces in our individual entry category, but we also have an heirloom category for quilts you own but didn’t make. Entries must be a flat quilt, bed quilt, wall hanging, or table runner. No quilted clothing will be accepted. Entries must be pieced and quilted and complete with a binding. Machine or hand quilting will be accepted, but entries cannot have been sent to a 3rd party for completion (it is, however acceptable to submit a quilt multiple people have collaborated on as long as one of the quilters is submitting it themselves). No tied quilts are permitted.
The deadline for submissions is July 16th. Send a clear digital photo of your entries to email@example.com. Photos of the quilts will be on display from mid-July until late August, but we’ll be displaying the quilts in person at a quilt show in the library on August 23rd. If you would like to enter a quilt and have no access to a quilt, contact the library at 814-684-1133 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Our Friends of the Library group is willing to make an appointment with you to come photograph your quilt for the show.
Patrons will be casting votes for their favorite quilts for $1.00 a vote until the show, where the individual entry with the most votes will win a gift basket. The winning heirloom entry will receive a certificate.
