Hi, this is Claire. I’m now updating our blog. We had a great meeting tonight. If anyone took pictures that they’d like me to post, please send them to me.
The online form to enter your quilts for our upcoming show, Stitch Modern will be up and running, by the end of this week. Like last year it will be $35 for each quilt entered. Everyone can have at least one, possibly two quilts in the show. Indicate which one is your first choice in case there isn’t room for both. The opening night party will be Friday April 7, 2017. We have two really interesting quilters coming to talk to us on Friday evening, April 21, Sara Reed, founder of the Social Justice Sewing Academy and the artist, Kathryn Clark.
The main Berkeley Public Library is having their Annual Quilt Show from May 1 through June 4, 2017. Call librarian Debbie Carton ASAP at 510-981-6236 if you’d like to show a quilt. (You don’t need to live in Berkeley to be in this show). This show isn’t juried, but they don’t have a lot of room. There is room for six 6′ x 6′ quilts, fourteen 3′ x 3′ quilts, six 12″ x 12″ quilts, ten 8″ x 8″ quilts and up to 60 “postcard quilts,” which are 4″ x 6″ or 3″ x 5″. Call to find out what size(s) they still have room for. The quilts can be delivered April 22, from 11 AM – 12 PM, or April 25, from 6:30- 7:30 PM. I’m making a 3′ x 3′ quilt for this show. They usually have a lovely potluck breakfast opening for the quilters in the show, which takes place before the library opens to the public.
