In honor of those who served in World War I, we will be offering the opportunity to see quilts through the eyes of a time when we were at war across the world. Men and women served in many capacities. With military hero’s, medical personnel, factory workers and the American public at large, there are many stories to be told, some through the art of quilting.
If you happen to have a quilt made during that time, please contact Cindy Craddock or Carol Shetler.
Every 2 years the Susquehanna Quilt Guild takes the opportunity to display quilts that the membership has crafted. We have a wonderfully talented guild and many of our members display one or more pieces of their work completed during the past 2 years. This is our guilds opportunity to show our work and the art of quilting to the public AND raise money for special events, such as bringing in SPECIAL SPEAKERS and SPECIAL WORKSHOPS, which we would not be able to afford otherwise.
Who helps at the Quilt Show?
Everyone! This is one of those events where ALL HANDS ON DECK applies! There are many who do lots behind the scenes. There are many jobs to be done. Many hands make lighter work for all. If you do not know where to plug in, find Cindy Craddock or any of the chairs, they will guide you to a place to be of help. This is a wonderful opportunity to get involved and get to know many guild members.
What is Quilter’s Corner?
Quilter’s Corner is a vendor type venue where the Guild sells items crafted by our membership. We generally make around $1600 to $1800 each year! We also sell fabric that our members donate. This is often something we bought intending to use then, well you know how that goes! Our motto for Quilter’s Corner is: MAKE ONE MORE! So when you are making an item and could easily do so, make 2 and donate one to Quilter’s Corner!
The 2018 Quilt Show’s Quilter’s Corner will be spearheaded by Cindy Campbell and Patsy Charles..
