Anyone can enter.  Quilts will be turned in in September.  To enter in July you need a name, size, and story about the quilt – no photo at that point.  Not juried.  Let’s enter!!  There’s no modern category so let’s have a presence!!

New Business:

  1. A Retreat in October is in the planning stage. Look for updates!
  2. Comfort quilts for fallen police officers – we had a local officer killed in a car accident recently. @craftycop is heading up this project – we will see if we can make a quilt locally and gift it without having to go through her.
