Quilt Fest Classes

Classes are filling up, so if there's one you have been thinking about, now is the time to get that registration form filled out.  Make sure you sign in if you are a UQG member in order to get your member discount.  There are a few openings available with our National Teachers, Ami Simms, Mary Lou Weidman, and Linda Ballard.  The pictures in the brochure don't do justice for their quilts, so please check out their galleries on their website.
Linda Ballard , Ami Simms , and Mary Lou Weidman  Click on their name for the website.

We have added Cindy Hutchison's "Floor Quilts Again" on Thursday evening.  If you weren't able to get into the Thurs. afternoon class you can sign up for the evening one.  Contact the Registrar if you need to change times.

Count Down Time

Heads up all you quilters out there!  Quilt Fest is in five weeks!!  August 25th is the deadline for your entry forms and photo of your quilt to reach Quilt Show Coordinator, Josephine Keasler.  You can enter on-line at Utah Quilt Guild .  Remember, UQG members may enter two quilts with NO entry fees!  If you don't want your quilt judged, there is a "display only" category as well.  Complete information is on the website for entering, and drop-off locations.  Deadline for quilts to be delivered to Josephine is Sept. 5th.  If you have one to enter call your Area Rep. and she will get it to Josephine.

New this year is our YOUTH categories with some great prizes so we hope there are lots of young quilters out there getting their quilts finished!

There are still openings for some great classes, so if you have been thinking about taking a class and joining all the fun, get those registrations sent in.  Even better, sign up on-line.  It is easy and secure.
