Quilted items do not have to be made by you. They can be from your family, a gift from someone, or an item that you purchased. Be sure to bring along the item's history (if known) so it can be included in the program book.

Anyone desiring to enter the quilt show can bring a maximum of two articles to the Museum from June 7th through June 21st, during regular hours.
Quilts will be displayed throughout the month of July.
Entries can be delivered early by calling the Museum and making arrangements.
