Interested in entering your quilt in the upcoming 2017 TCQG Quilt Show? Show Chair, Laurel Sutton, explains this year's entry categories: Thrifty, Spendy, or Overdue.
Quilt show theme entries call for different portions of time, talent, treasure
1. Thrifty quilts, made from scraps or swaps, will require little treasure, but maybe lots of time and talent. Kate Giever shopped for her thrifty project – at Goodwill: “You can get a LOT of fabric from a man’s XXL shirt,” she testifies.
The Tri-City Quilters’ Guild is pleased to announce the 2017 Member Featured Artist: Geneva Carroll. This year’s MFA was selected by TCQG member vote, following presentations by three MFA candidates at the September meetings.
On learning that she had been selected for this year’s Member Featured Artist, Geneva shared:
Each year, the Tri-City Quilters' Guild holds a raffle for a unique, hand-crafted quilt as part of the annual Quilt Show. Created and quilted by members, the Raffle Quilt represents the finest expression of the quilter's art.
Funds raised by the Raffle Quilt support the community service outreach of the Guild. Tickets are $1, and are sold at venues across the Mid-Columbia. Stop by our booth, next time you're out-and-about!
Meet the 2017 Raffle Quilt
A stunning example of the quilter’s art, the 2017 Raffle Quilt made its debut at the June 2016 meetings.
The TCQG 2017 Quilt Show will be held at Three Rivers Convention Center on March 24-25; many happy merchants will also return for a celebration of “Quilting Economic$”, selected as the 2017 Quilt Show theme.
Show chair Laurel Sutton chose the theme in part to fulfill the “educational” thrust of the guild mission. “We can inform the public about how quilting and quilters influence the production, distribution, and consumption of goods and services (topics studied by the science of economics).”
