Quilts in Paradise
With the theme "Quilts in Paradise", the Friendship Knot Quilters Guild has challenged its members by asking the question: "What is your Paradise?" You might like to remember this when you visit the show and consider how wonderful it is to live in a tropical paradise and how often we express this in our quilts. Having abundant sunshine helps a quilter create. Quilts= Paradise=SARASOTA.
The 2013 show will showcase a fantastic array of quilts - from traditional to contemporary created by beginners to national award winners.
As part of the show, a Merchants Mall will showcase vendors offering a variety of commercial cottons, wools and hand-dyed fibers as well as notions, patterns and tools. Sewing/quilting/embroidery machines and long arm machines will also be on display.
The Guild-sponsored Boutique will offer both traditional and modern items for sale. There will also be a Consignment Sales area. Plan to stop in and shop for yourself or a gift for someone special.
There will be two silent auctions: a Block Auction with ready-to-use quilt blocks closing on Saturday and a Small Quilt Auction with winners each day of show.
Appraiser Brenda Grampsas, an American Quilter's Society certified appraiser of quilts and quilted textiles will be available each day. She is a member of the Professional Association of Appraisers-Quilted Textiles. www.thimbletales.com
