Quilts from the Heart of Berks
October 5 & 6 2018
Biannually, the Berks Quilt Guild presents Quilts from the Heart of Berks show, a superb collection of quilts made by the members of the guild.
The 2018 show on October 5 and 6 was a great success ! The show included almost 200 items made by 51 of our 125 members. The majority of the exhibit included quilts of various sizes and techniques. Also included were a number of craft items such as table runners, pillows, and other home items. About 75% of the quilts were judged with 46 ribbons awarded. The ‘Best in Show’ award went to “Old Vine Zen” by Tracey Moyer, quilted by Bethanne Nemish.
The show also featured 20 vendors, a demonstration area with hourly presentations, a silent auction, and a large number of raffle baskets.
Our thanks to our show sponsor, Don Kauffman Sewing in Temple, PA.
The next show is scheduled for October, 2020.
Activity : Meet the Teachers !
The Meet the Quilt Teacher program was a great success. We had 10 teachers from 5 states, and their presentations often were filled to the point of standing room only. Many quilt guilds sent representatives to the show, and it was a good opportunity for both the teachers and the guild members to meet. The teachers were able to present samples of their guild workshops, and many left with several bookings on their schedules, and the emails of other interested guilds. Some sold their books and patterns or fabrics as well.
Any guild or teacher who wishes to be notified of the next Meet the Quilt Teacher event should leave us a contact email and specify whether they are a guild or a teacher.
Our thanks to the Teachers! We loved hosting you! And thanks also to the guilds who used the opportunity to book great Teachers.
