Consider Entering the Vermont Quilt Festival

One thing I’d really like to see are more original quilts in the Vermont Quilt Festival, so I’d like to encourage SAQA members to enter.  It’s not a juried show.  All you have to do is get an entry in the mail between February 1st and 10th.  They’ve even accepted photos of unfinished quilts in the past!  

Contest info is at http://www.vqf.org/files/2014/2014_Contest_Information_and_Rules.pdf

There are always some quilts by SAQA members, but I think it would be great to jazz things up at the Festival with more of them.  Could you help me spread the word to SAQA New Englanders?

Thanks and Happy New Year.
