“Doorways to the Silver Anniversary of LCQG – 25 Years of Quilting Together” was the theme of the challenge presented to the Guild Members in order to celebrate this year’s 25th Anniversary. With that theme, a swatch of silver fabric, the group was encouraged to submit their entries at the May 2015 Guild Meeting.
Winners were Carol Darou (1st), Cathy Price (2nd) and first time challenge entry Hope Bell (3rd). Congratulations to our winners and all who entered.
The Richmond Fair is looking for Quilt entries from all quilters, not just Richmond residents!
Quilts are judged and there are prizes but the main purpose is to have a great show and be proud to show our work! There are additional special prizes donated by area quilt shops for some categories. To see the full prize list catagories see the website at http://www.richmondfair.ca link to fair info/prize lists/homecraft/quilts(class 90)
The committee is aware that all quilts are precious and care is taken to ensure all surfaces for quilts are clean, gloves are worn and there is no food or drinks anywhere in the vacinity of quilts. We will pin a hanging sleeve if one is not provided but ideally your quilt will have a sleeve (temporary attachment with safety pins if fine).
The entry forms need to be in to the fair office by Tuesday 8th September You will be able to enter on line in August. Quilts come in Monday 14th and Tuesday 16th September (check times on the website). Pick up will be by person designated after 5:30pm on the Sunday 21st. Check the website below for times and rules for entering and the catagories of entries. There is an entry fee of $10 per person (as many quilts or other fair entries as you wish!) but you will receive a free ticket for entry into the fair.
Our final meeting for the 2014-2015 season will be held on Tuesday June 23 at 6:00pm at the Perth Lions Hall with a Potluck dinner to celebrate the guild’s 25th Anniversary.
