Country Fare Quilter’s Guild received three fantastic ribbons on the 2016 Donation Quilt “Everything’s Black and White” at Muskogee Area Quilt Guild’s annual quilt show last month: First Place in the Group Category, Judge’s Choice, and Viewer’s Choice. The quilt was put together by members Linda Hertensteiner and Paula Klaassen with 2015 Fabric Challenge blocks created by various guild members and then machine quilted by guild member and President Judy Haines. The quilt will be given away at our annual “Autumn Leaves” Quilt Show in October, 2016 (exact date pending). Tickets can be purchased from guild members or at one of our regular guild meetings. Congratulations, guild members!

Please deliver pre-registered quilt show entries to Claremore Community Center, 2301 N. Sioux Ave. in Claremore on Thursday, October 18th between 8:00 a.m. and Noon. All quilts must have a fabric identification label sewn securely to the back of the quilt or the exhibitor’s name written on the quilt.
The quilt show opens Friday, October 19 at 9:00 a.m. and will be open until 5:00. Saturday hours are from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Plan to spend the day, as there are many quilts to see, three bed turnings each day, live demonstrations throughout the day, fun chinese auctions with aprons and wonderful gift baskets, a small quilt auction, and of course, many vendors to shop with. There’s even a concession so you can stay through lunch. Then, shop our Crafts room of items hand made by guild members and sign blocks or sew for Quilts of Valor.
