Seattle MQG members, we need your quilts! For the fourth year, the Seattle Modern Quilt Guild has been invited to exhibit member quilts during the 2016 Northwest Folklife Festival. Our quilts will be on display in the Intiman Theater Courtyard from May 27-30 (Memorial Day Weekend) at the Seattle Center. (Look for signs for the Cornish Playhouse.)
The SMQG displayed 18 quilts in 2015. Help us grow our show this year and submit your quilt here. You may enter multiple quilts (one per form), but please limit to 3 per person. There are no size restrictions, but all quilts require a hanging sleeve and a label with your name on it. We will collect the quilts at the May 11 general meeting and return them at the June 8 meeting.
Don’t forget to volunteer to help with the show! We need 6-8 volunteers to help set up on Thursday, May 28th and take down on Monday, May 30th. You are welcome to volunteer even if you don’t submit a quilt. Just follow the instructions on the entry form. Other volunteer opportunities are listed at the end of the form.
If you plan to spend time at Folklife this year, there will be a Fiber Arts Demonstration Tent all 4 days and a Fiber Arts Flash Mob planned for Saturday, May 28th. Find more details here or visit their facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/fiberartflashmob/.
