Sew the labels and sleeves on those quilts you’ve been showing at Show ‘N Tell... finish up that quilt or textile project and get it ready for our bi-annual Quilt Show! We encourage every member to one quilt and/or piece of wearable or textile art or an art quilt.
Attached is a list of Committees and Committee Leaders, please contact them with any questions you have about any of this information! The goal of the Quilt Show Committee is to provide a quilt show that will promote, preserve and encourage the art of quilting and provide Guild Members with an enjoyable experience to show off their work.

Wearable art includes both wearable and non-wearable forms of art using fabric and other fiber products. Artists creating wearable or fiber art may use purchased finished fabrics or other materials, making them into garments, or may dye and/or paint virgin fabric. Entries may include garments, purses and bags, table toppers and a wide variety of other items!
Art Quilts are original works and designs. In this category pieces have been designed by the maker, not from a commercial pattern using fabrics that have been purchased or created by the artist.

Membership Participation - High Five Points
A point system called “High Five” is established to encourage guild member participation in the Quilt Show and our Community Service Projects. Points are awarded for volunteering your time working on the quilt show and for baby quilts, dolls and animals that you make throughout the year. For every five points awarded, the guild member will be able to add an entry for a prize to be awarded at the first meeting following the quilt show. High Five cards are always available at the front table at the Guild meetings. Any time you help or participate with anything related to the quilt show, you may have one of the Committee Heads initial your card. When you have all 5 points on a card, place it in the High Five Box at the Quilt Show table and get another card for more chances to win the prize! No limit on number of entries.
