Quilt Fest starts in three days!! This fall weather has been perfect and may be just a bit cooler next week so if you plan on attending make sure you take a sweater or jacket. Midway, UT should be just gorgeous while we are there. Lots of classes taught by some wonderful teachers, both local and national. Our national teachers this year are John Flynn, Norah McMeeking, Sue Nickels, and Mary Stori. There are still spots available in a few of the classes, so check out the Utah Quilt Guild website for the listings. Classes not your thing this year? There will be a wonderful quilt show, mini-quilt auction, Breast Cancer block challenge and auction, a pattern exchange, plus our famous auction of Festival Baskets (full of goodies) donated and made by various people/guilds. We can't forget to mention what most of us look forward to.............the Vendors Mall!!!!
If all of this isn't enough to entice you, there will also be some special exhibits along with the quilt show. One is the Alphabet Soup Challenge. Twenty-six quilters each chose a letter of the alphabet and made a small 18"x 24" quilt depicting what that letter means to the quilter.
Another special exhibit will be the Heber Valley Row Quilts. I've seen these quilts and they are wonderful.
There will be a lot more going on to, so plan on visiting the show in Midway, UT at the Zermott Resort, Tues. evening Oct. 5th, through Sat. Oct. 9th. The show quilts will be taken down after lunch on Sat. but classes will continue until 5 p.m.
Hope to see you there. I'd love to know how many of you read this blog, so don't be shy....say hello.
