Our selection of over 200 little quilts donated to support the NQA Grant program were awesome and the live auction on Friday night was lively.  Be sure to consider applying for a grant for your educational outreach programs and philanthropic endeavors.  A Grant Application is available here.

 Finally, we want to thank the Quilt Show Co-Directors, Karen Blocher and Judy Taylor, for the unending efforts to bring us this year’s wonderful Show, as well as the NQA Certified Judges who worked tirelessly to judge over 400 quilts prior to the Show, and all the volunteers who coordinated every aspect of the show and those who worked as Sack Sitters, White Glovers, Admissions, and all the other many jobs it takes to pull off a national quilt show. 

Mark your calendars for next year—May 23-25, 2014.
