Quilting guild members and the general public are invited to this quilting showcase and community presentation.
Opening statements – 10 am
Appraisal presentations – Nancy McDonough, quilt appraiser, will make four mini-presentations on four different types of quilts and how they might be valued. Presentations are scheduled for 10:15am, 12:15pm, 1:30pm, and 3:45pm
Show-and -Tell – 10:30 am-noon and 1:45-3:45 pm. Go ahead, flaunt it! Bring your best quilt, one you made or that someone else made, and show it off. You will have 1 minute, and only 1 minute, to do some serious flaunting and bragging. Bring it on! Bring your most cherished, your most used, or the one that makes you feel good. We will be presenting the longest Show-and-Tell in history in the Central Atrium of Crosstown Concourse. Guilds will be invited to come as a group and tell the story of their guild on stage.
Quilt Marketplace – 10 am to 4 pm. Bring your guild, family members and friends to the celebration of all things quilting! Local sewing and quilt guilds will be selling items to the public and sharing their stories.
This event is in conjunction with Stitched: Celebrating the Art of Quilting — a festival at Crosstown Arts with art exhibitions, public quilting workshops, and a Gathering of the Guilds showcase. Stitched runs from May 10-July 28, 2019.
