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.
