Mark your calendars - August 24, 2013
Our first annual quilt show will feature over 225 quilts made by local quilters.  The show will include a special exhibit of the works of the late Betty Alderman, a family friend of mine who reached international fame for her work and wrote numerous books and patterns.  We are fortunate to have the opportunity to show a small selection of Betty's work before her quilts travel to the International Quilt Festival in Houston, Texas where her work will be honored.  Lynn Ink, an area resident will also exhibit her stunning and very traditional quilts.  All breathtaking in design, a true feast for the traditional quilter.  In addition to traditional quilts, the show includes many art quilts and we are excited to show a piece by Kris Gregson Moss, a fiber artist from the Glens Falls area.  Kris will be teaching at O'Susannah's on October 13 & 14, 2013 and we're excited for the opportunity of a class in fabric sculpture.  For the first time, our block of the month quilts from Quilt Club for the past 9 years will all be on display.  You'll see the growth of the quilters who attend quilt club once a month at O'Susannah's.

Prize Raffle

While you're visiting the show take a few minutes and check out our wonderful raffle items.  Our vendors have been very generous with donations for our raffle.  You'll love the variety of items being offered.
The money raised by our raffle will benefit The Give A Hug Club at O'Susannah's.  Members of The Give A Hug Club make lap size quilts for area residents who are in need of a hug just to let them know someone is thinking of them.  For four years, O'Susannah's has been donating the fabric, batting and long arm quilting for these quilts.  We hope you will support our raffle table.  The quilt show committee has been working hard to offer you a great and exciting selection of raffle items.
Enjoy some refreshments while at the show

The Reynoldsville United Methodist Church will be at the show offering coffee, donuts and lunch.  The proceeds from the food will benefit the building fund and youth ministry of the Church

Don't forget to help us celebrate The Quilt Sampler magazine.
