Antique Quilts

Quilts over 50 years old. This means they must have been made prior to 1969. Any size, any type.

Any quilt smaller than a twin-bed quilt. Includes any combination of hand- and machine- piecing and quilting. Our judge will take level of skill into account. 

Wall Hangings

Any size quilt meant to hang on a wall or serve as a decorative piece. Includes any combination of hand- and machine- piecing and quilting. Our judge will take level of skill into account. 

Group Quilts (by 3 or more)

Any size quilt as long as it has been pieced and/or quilted by a combination of three (3) or more people. Includes any combination of hand- and machine- piecing and quilting. Our judge will take level of skill into account. 

Youth Quilts (16 or under)

Any size quilt by someone sixteen (16) years of age or younger. Quilting could have been supported by or machine-quilted by someone older, but the majority of the quilt should be the child's own work. 

Novice Quilts

Any size quilt created by someone with three (3) years or less quilting experience. Participants in this category should be aware that the judge may recategorize quilts into another category if the skill level is determined to exceed a novice level, regardless of years experience. 

Art Quilts

Other

Challenge Quilts

Any size quilt that is within the confines of our Quilting Challenge.

Anyone, sewing know-how or not, is encouraged to volunteer any time they have today. Doing so would help provide homemade items to honor our service men and women. 

If you have a sewing machine, arm yourself with your machine and some neutral thread to help us out! Volunteers can offer any amount of time, whether it is fifteen minutes or five hours. 

Volunteers may enter the quilt show for free on this day. 

Food is not provided, however, there are many unique local restaurants within walking distance of the Museum Center.

Beginning Quilting: Table Toppers with Beth Spencer

Always wanted to learn how to sew? How to quilt? Come by our beginning quilting class during vendor weekend and learn to make a 9 block table-topper. Fabric and sewing machines will be provided, so you only need to bring yourself. Children 10+ are invited to participate and beginner adults are also welcome. 

This class is designed for absolute beginners, so have no fear! We will show you how to use the sewing machine to put together your own table-topper. 

Beth Spencer has been quilting since the early 90’s, walked into her first quilt shop to buy fabric to make pillows for finishing cross stitch, signed up for a quilt class and has been hooked ever since. She was told once that she always was signing up for hard techniques for a new quilter, but she read quilt books and never gave up on the projects she started. The engineer in her enjoys the quilt making process …. the quilting is her challenge, She has a “magic box of quilt tops” so she usually can come up with a quilt to finish for any occasion – baby shower, wedding, house warming.

$10 non-members, $5 members
