Previously the La Conner Quilts museum, the Pacific Northwest Quilt & Fiber Arts Museum, is celebrating twenty years. To go with the new name, they have a new slogan: Imagine. Create. Inspire. Any nonprofit reaching the five year mark is a cause for celebration, let alone twenty years. Congrats to all who had part in making the museum happen and thrive!
Besides the museums two other quilts exhibits Pieces of the Past: 20 years of Collecting and Time Flies...20th Anniversary Festival Challenge exhibit, QTC was honored to be selected to help with the celebration.
Pieces of the Prairie one of our traveling exhibitions will be there. This exhibit will give viewers in the Seattle area a firsthand look at some of the quilts from our new book, Pioneer Quilts: Prairie Settlers’ Life in Fabric. It is also an opportunity to see our Block of the Month Friendship Quilt in person. On Sunday Oct 8th, I’ll be giving a presentation at the anniversary event.
The multiple day celebration includes a variety of workshops and a Gala Dinner & Art Auction. If you want to participate in the fun here is a link with more info. Kay and I will be at the festival Oct 5-8 every day and look forward to seeing you there! We'll have our books for sale and will be happy to autograph the books for you.
