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.

Santa Rosa Quilt Guild Donation Update

RE:  SANTA ROSA QUILT GUILD FABRIC DONATIONS

Dear Wiltwyck quilters,

 
I just received an email from the president of the Santa Rosa Quilt Guild saying that they have been SWAMPED with fabric donations from all over the WORLD.  That says something wonderful about all of us quilters!  They DON’T NEED MORE FABRIC (very busy sorting what has been donated) but STILL NEED THREAD.  So, instead of bringing fabric to our December meeting, could you bring a spool of thread?  I will still collect and mail it to them.  Thanks.
