Festival Quilt Show
For our 5th Anniversary we are going to do something a little different with a celebration of quilts on display! I invite ALL past students and attendees of Festival along with all customers of Constantine Quilts to enter their prize winning quilts to be judged by their peers and gain the coveted ‘Viewer’s Choice’ award.
I am very proud and humbled by all my friends, acquaintances, students and customers that have challenged themselves to learn more, do more & achieve more in their quilting endeavours. So much so, that I would love to honour you all by being able to once again, display your award winning quilts for all to enjoy. So many times I hear that a special quilt has won awards & now languishes on a wall, bed or in a cupboard as you can’t enter them into shows where they have already been seen. I’d like to think that I’ve played just a teeny, tiny role in your quilting career and now want to show your quilts to more people who really appreciate them.
So this is your chance to bring them out to be admired, oohed & aahhed over, appreciated and loved once again. We will have an amazing display of stunning quilts and be very honoured to receive the best award of all – the ‘Viewer’s Choice’ award amongst the best of the best.
I am thrilled to announce some great sponsors that are supporting this initiative who are excited to be involved in celebrating this display. Please take the time to acknowledge them when you enter your quilts. Click on their logo to send them a thank you email straight away!Enter here!
