Call for Quilts for Western Fair Quilt Show!!!!

OK all you LFQG ladies......let's share our love of quilts and see if we can help get the Quilt show back at the Western Fair again.  Here is the information.  Give Judy at Cornerstone Quilts a call (phone # below)  if you can help or have quilts to show.  

Western Fair Quilt Display, September 6-15, 2013 There is now a call for quilts for a display (not a competition) at this year’s Western Fair, running from September 6-15th .  It will be located in the Progress Building.  We are looking for bed quilts of any size, and wallhangings not to exceed 60” square.  They may be hand-quilted, quilted by a domestic sewing machine, or by mid- to long-arm quilting machines.  The Fair is looking for  a sampling range from each category.

They will accept 12-15 quilts with hanging sleeves for this display and will choose the quilts to be displayed out of those submitted to Cornerstone Quilts & More, which will accept quilts on their behalf from now until August 23rd.  In other words, not all quilts submitted will be displayed as there is a space limitation for this year only.  If you would like to participate in this year’s quilt display at the Western Fair, please drop off your quilts to Cornerstone Quilts & More, 1700 Hyde Park Road, London, before August 23rd.  Insurance for theft/damage for your quilts will be your responsibility (check your insurance policy – you may be able to add a temporary rider during this event, if you do not already have a rider in place).  

We are also looking for volunteers to white-glove during the Fair hours which are 3:00 pm – 10:00 pm Monday to Friday, and 11:00 am – 10:00 pm on Saturday and Sunday.  Having a white-glove presence during Fair hours also helps protect the display and there is a security presence and lock-down after hours.  You will be granted free admission and parking to the Fair on those days you are on-duty.   Shift length is up to you, starting with a two-hour minimum.
If you can participate as a white-glover, please call Judy at Cornerstone Quilts – (519) 518-0110.  The Western Fair Quilt Competition begins in 2014 and more detailed information will be available at a later date.  This a new opportunity to strut your stuff and encourage a quality show next year.
