Show Information for Members
Members, Register Your Quilt for the Show Now
The deadline for members to enter their quilts is: Tuesday, July 16, 2019 at midnight.
Remember, filling out and submitting the form is just the first step in registering your quilt. Once you submit the form, you will receive a confirmation email within 5 days, so watch for it. Reply to the confirmation email and attach a picture of your finished quilt. You will receive a second email confirming completion of your entry.
If you would like to have Kearstie photograph your completed quilt, fill out the entry form and submit it ahead of time and bring the quilt along with its name (which you have already entered online) to a meeting. Pictures may be taken about 15 minutes before the start of a meeting or immediately after the meeting.
Quilts of Valor Nominations
The Village Quilters is once again very proud to honor our American Veterans with a Quilt of Valor award ceremony at their bi-annual quilt show on Saturday, October 5, 2019. Any current or retired member of the United States Armed Forces who has served "in harms way" is eligible to receive this one time only honor of a Quilt of Valor.
To nominate a Veteran you know, submit a Nomination form to either Cheryl Mercy or Linda Spring prior to August 1, 2019 to be considered. We must limit the number of Veterans to no more that 15 to receive a quilt at the show. Please note that Nomination forms will also be available at all upcoming VQ regular meetings.
Quilts of Valor Donations
On an obvious side note, in order that this event go forward, all VQ members are encouraged to make and submit a Quilt of Valor for presentation (see the requirements). Whether made singularly or in a group, a Quilt of Valor is an extremely rewarding experience and one that truly says to Veterans, "Thank you for your service to ensure our continued freedom."
Does my quilt need a hanging sleeve (rod pocket)?
Yes! All quilts displayed in the show need a 4-inch hanging sleeve EXCEPT:
an Art Quilt Challenge
a donated Quilt of Valor that has NO Room or Section number on its ID card (distributed in September 2017)
Temporary sleeves must be securely basted at 2-inch intervals, preferably on the bottom and top of the sleeve.
Tallgrass Prairie Studio has a great tutorial on adding a permanent 4-in. hanging sleeve.
Want to see a video? American Quilter's Society has a YouTube video about adding a sleeve that includes a sleeve idea for very wide quilts.
