Calling all Apprentice and Wizard quilters!  

We are looking for quilts for the quilt show at Quilt Fest.  (Wow, that’s a lot of “quilts” in those last two sentences, just like we want a lot of quilts for this show!)  The first 100 people to entry a quilt for the show (either to be judged or for display only) will receive a bag full of quilting goodies.   We have a $10 gift certificate from Nuttall's; thread from It’s Sew Moab; a Creative grids 2-1/2” x 6-1/2” ruler from Scrap Apple Quilts; True Grips (package of 15 small and 15 large) from Grace Company; a small notebook from Josephine Keasler; and a certificate good for free UQSM 2020 class registration (a $15 value) which is also good for 3-days admission (a $30 value).  All of this is in a bag lovingly made by various UQG board members.  We continue to receive additional items, and of course there will be some treats of some sort included as well.  (Only one bag per participant). See all the quilt show rules in the Quilt Fest booklet or on the website.

We have arranged to have various quilt shops around the state to serve as collection points for quilt drop off.  My Girlfriends Quilt Shoppe, in Logan;  Wimmer’s Sewing and Vacuum, in Ogden and Layton; Nuttall’s Sewing Centers in Layton, Ivy Place, Riverton, and Pleasant Grove; K&H in Kaysville; Jewel’s Fabric Stash in Bountiful;  It’s Sew Moab, in Moab; and Scrap Apple Quilts in St. George. In-store quilt drop off is September 2-7 (noon on the 7th).  We may be adding more shops to the list next month, so check back in August to see if there are additions.

Also, you can contact your area rep and they may be able to help you.  In addition, you can send the quilts directly to Louise Mudd (address: 1102 E 2550 North,  Layton, UT 84040).  Quilts need to be to Louise by September 10th, unless you have notified Louise on your entry form that your quilt will be coming to the Davis Conference Center on Monday September 16 between 3-5 pm.  Need to use that option and didn’t put it on your original entry form? Please contact Louise directly to make a change  (email – louisemudd@yahoo.com).  Let’s make this a great show!
