Pe­teet­neet Arts Coun­cil hosts it’s 12th An­nual Payson Pe­teet­neet Quilt Show. This year’s show is ex­pected to be even big­ger and bet­ter than in pre­vi­ous years. We have a great com­mit­tee, and they are ex­cited to an­nounce some ma­jor changes and ova­tions for this years show. We have been know for our show be­cause we ac­cept quilts based on their orig­i­nal­ity and de­sign, and let all par­tic­i­pants in the show vote to se­lect a win­ner in each cat­e­gory dur­ing the show.

We will con­tinue to do that this year, but we have also de­cided to have judges also pick a win­ner in each cat­e­gory, and they will cri­tique the quilts and list the specifics used to qual­ify the win­ners in each of the cat­e­gories. This year’s theme is “Bind­ing the Gen­er­a­tions.” A fa­vorite cat­e­gory in our shows is the heir­loom quilts. This year the heir­looms will not re­quire an en­try fee, but in lieu of that, we will re­quest a story or his­tory of the quilt, and it should be made prior to 1960 and hand quilted to qual­ify.

We also have a free trunk show sched­uled for June 28th at 1: 00 pm with Lau­rel Chris­tensen and fam­ily show­ing an­tique quilts from three gen­er­a­tions of quil­ters. Other cat­e­gories for the show will in­clude hand quilted, ma­chine quilted- ap­plicued and pieced, baby, youth, and chal­lenge quilts, and wall hang­ings and mis­cel­la­neous hand­i­work.

There is no en­try fee for the chal­lenge quilts be­cause that was paid last year when you pur­chased your fab­ric at the show. Youth quilts will be charged a $ 3.00 en­try fee and all other en­tries will be charged $ 7.00

Some very ex­cit­ing classes are sched­uled for Fri­day, June 27th and Satur­day June 28th. For com­plete in­for­ma­tion go to pe­teet­neetquilt­show.word­press.com. As in pre­vi­ous years we will also be ty­ing baby quilts for the Moun­tain­view Hos­pi­tal and re­quest vol­un­teers to help host the show.

Ev­ery year dur­ing the show we have so many peo­ple say they wished they had en­tered their quilts. We urge you to get them ready and en­tered this year be­cause you never know if you will ever have a bet­ter chance than here and now!

We thank our com­mit­tee, the Pe­teet­neet Arts Coun­cil and our great spon­sors for bring­ing us this great event.

The dates of the quilt show will be June 20th to June 30th. Hours will be Mon. through Sat. from 10 am to 4 pm and Wed. from 10 am to 8 pm. Quilts must be en­tered on Tues­day, June 17th from 10 am to 8 pm and Wed­nes­day, June 18th 10 am un­til noon.
