QUILT SHOW NEWS

 The theme for the 2017 San Juan Quilter’s Guild is “Scrappy Melody.”  It is to be held Friday and Saturday, October 13 and 14, 2017 at the Civic Center. We will not be having vendors this year due to limited space for  them.(Civic Center will be under remodeling at this time.) 

            The Challenge Quilt will be 1 UFO with the story behind that quilt. We are only going to allow 1 UFO per person.

            We are still in need of items for the Silent /Mini Quilt Auction.  Please see Bev Spelling to give her the items.

            I am looking forward to a great Quilt Show in October.

Art Quilts are more an idea or concept than a traditional pattern.  Different textiles, color, textures and/or a diversity of mixed media will be used in an “Art Quilt”.  The theme of art quilts are generally based on the quilter’s experiences, imagery, and ideas using both modern and traditional quilting techniques to create art objects.

ARTIFACTS QUILT SHOW

 Artifacts gallery is giving the Guild the opportunity to sell mini quilts and wall hangings at the gallery during the month of September!  I don’t have much info yet but I will keep members informed through the newsletter, emails and at meetings.  The maximum size is 36” X 36” and all quilts will need sleeves and labels indicating the name of the piece, maker, designer or inspiration and date. In keeping with standard protocol, the gallery keeps 50% of sale price.

 Quilts need to be turned  in by the August Guild meeting or at the very latest August 20th. Please have a note attached with your name, phone number and sale price.
