The guild has held an annual quilt show every fall, until 2015. We called it the Indian Summer show, since it was in late September.
When that didn’t work out anymore, we came up with a new plan. The Metro Quilt Expo will debut the last weekend of April, 2017. We plan to hold it every year.
The Expo will have 14 vendors, 165 quilts to be judged in 5 categories, 3 special exhibits and a silent auction of small quilts. We have scheduled free demonstrations to run throughout both days, and a series of lectures at $5 per person. Kim Stenehjem is the chair. Susan Curtis is in charge of volunteers.
There will be NO workshops or classes at the Expo. Instead, we will have FREE demonstrations and $10 lectures, details here.
MARK YOUR CALENDAR now, and check back here for more details as the date approaches.
NOTE: hours are 9 to 7 and 9 to 5
children under 12 are free
