Although we did not have our 2020 quilt show many guild members worked very hard to create their special CHALLENGE QUILT entry. Guild members are asked to take photos of their completed Challenge Quilt. Send the photos to Michelle Owens by Thanksgiving and they will be posted on our QUILT SHOW tab. Guild members will vote on their favorite entry starting on December 1st by email to Keren Rotberg or at the December Zoom meeting. Special ribbons will be awarded!
If you did not finish your Challenge Quilt in time for the Quilt Show you now have a second chance. Finish it by Thanksgiving and send a photo to Michelle Owens to be included in this special event!
