Celebrate the joy and creative energy of the season through the art of quilting.
Kick off your Lazy Crazy Summer at our eagerly awaited quilt show, beginning on the first day of summer in 2024! We're getting ready for an exciting lineup of activities, including fabulous prizes, raffles, special exhibits showcasing quilters from across the country, and a bustling vendor hall where you can stock up on projects, supplies, gifts, and quilting inspiration.
Whether you're a seasoned quilter or someone who appreciates the beauty of handmade art, there will be something for everyone in our world of colorful stitches and radiant designs. Mark your calendars and join us for this sun-soaked, stitch-filled adventure!
Some of this show's exciting highlights:
Vendor hall for sewing and crafting supplies, gifts, and art
Over 200 judged and exhibition quilts, with entry open to all
Quilto: Bingo with a quilt-y twist where everything has a quilting or sewing theme. There will be multiple opportunities to play during the show, so plenty of opportunities to win some awesome quilts and quilt related prizes!
Make and Take: An area for a fun, handmade project(s)s you can make right there to take home. And maybe learn a new skill!
Youth Entries: All youth (16 and under) who enter a quilt will be entered into a drawing for a sewing machine and other goodies. They will also receive constructive comments from experienced quilters to help them on their quilting journey.
Special Exhibits: We have secured two special exhibits – Cherrywood Monarch Butterflies, Inspired by The Nation’s Capitol; and quilts by Sue Nichols.
Prizes to be Awarded: Prizes will be awarded for Best in Show, Best Use of Color, Best Interpretation of Theme, Best Hand Workmanship, Best Sewing Machine Workmanship, and Best Longarm Workmanship
Stay tuned to learn more about how to enter your quilts!
We're looking forward to seeing all of the projects you've been working on for the past few years! For your convenience, the entry process will be online. Please contact Diane Senerth (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have questions or would like more details.
