Folklife Festival 2017 – call for quilts

It’s that time again!  We are calling for quilts to show in our fifth annual Seattle Modern Quilt Guild display during the 2017 Northwest Folklife Festival.  Our quilts will hang in the Cornish Playhouse Courtyard from May 26-29 (Memorial Day Weekend) at the Seattle Center.  (Formerly Intiman Theater courtyard).


2016 set-up

2016 was our largest display yet with 22 quilts.  Help us grow our show again 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 10 general meeting and return them at the June 14 meeting.

Don’t forget to volunteer to help with the show!  We need 6-8 volunteers to help set up on Thursday, May 25th and take down on Monday, May 29th.  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.
