2018 Wiltwyck Quilt Show Challenge

 2018 Wiltwyck Quilt Show Challenge 

The summer of 2019 will be the 50 year celebration of the Woodstock Festival. In honor of this milestone, the challenge for the 2018 quilt show will be “Celebrating 50 Years of Woodstock.” 

Participants will create a quilt (three layers) or a quilt top that celebrates or commemorates something about the Woodstock Festival or something about Woodstock itself. 

The entry can be any shape, but the perimeter should not exceed 80.” There are no limitations regarding fabric color or type. Please do not replicate the festival logo using the guitar and bird. Entries using the guitar and bird logo cannot be accepted. 

Embellishments are allowed as long as they do not extend more than 1″ beyond the surface of the piece. No glitter will be allowed. 

If there are enough finished quilts entered to create a show, after the guild show they will be offered to various venues to be displayed during the anniversary year of 2019. 

Finished quilts should have a 2″ minimum sleeve attached to the back for hanging. A quilt top does not need a hanger. 

The entry should have the maker’s name, phone number, and email or address included on the back. 

All entries will be due at the April 2018 meeting. Voting will occur at the May meeting. 

Any questions should be directed to Cheryl Kosarek, ckosarek@aol.com or 845-657-6783.

Quilt Show at Ulster Savings Bank

Quilt Show At Ulster Savings Bank
November 18, 2016 – January 5, 2017

Ulster Savings Bank has long been a supporter of local artists and has hosted quilt displays for several years.  Our own Dolly Wodin has been a visiting quilt artist in the past and when approached to hang her work again last year, she suggested something a little different.

Quilters are notoriously philanthropic and organizations such as nursing homes, domestic violence shelters, veterans’ hospitals, children’s homes, and wounded warrior projects have all benefitted.  Dolly thought that a display of some of the charity quilts created by local artists might serve not only to highlight the needs of charitable causes but also encourage other quilters to contribute their creative efforts to needy organizations.  The response to Dolly’s call-to-quilters for charity quilts was immediate and enthusiastic.  More than a dozen quilters submitted thirty quilts destined for distribution to the following recipients:

  • Adaptive Sports Foundation
  • Agri-Business Child Development
  • Astor Services for Children and Families
  • Children’s Home of Poughkeepsie
  • Family of Woodstock Domestic Violence Services
  • Golden Hill Nursing and Rehabilitation Center
  • Mountainview Nursing and Rehabilitation Center
  • Philanthropic Educational Organization
  • University of Albany School of Social Welfare
  • VFW for VA Hospital at Castle Point

The response from clients of the bank was so positive and receptive that the staff at Ulster Savings requested that Dolly come back and do it all again.

Please consider displaying one of your quilts destined for donation to a charity.
Contact Dolly Wodin (her info is in the book or contact wiltwyckquilters@wiltwyckquilters.org) for more information.

The location of the participating bank is:

Ulster Savings Bank
Gardiner Branch
2201 Route 44-55
Gardiner,  NY

Even if your charity quilts have already flown the coop, you can stop by to see the display at the opening day reception or at any time during bank hours until the show closes.
