Antique and Heritage Quilts wanted for the Quilt Show
Do you have a cherished antique or family quilt lurking in your closet or trunk. If so, the Quilt Show Committee would love to see it. We are looking for quilts that are clean, in good shape and are odor-free to display next spring in the Special Exhibits category. If you have something like I'm describing please contact Cathey Kennedy at 518-281-0053 or me@catheykennedy.com and she will get back to you about the specifics. And just an FYI... we're not planning on charging an entry fee for these quilts. We can't wait to see what you have!
