Quilt Display at the Central States Fair

Save the Date: August 18-27, 2023

More information will be added later.

The Central States Fair in August provides a great opportunity to display quilted creations. The guild assists in the Quilt Division by providing guild members to serve as Fair Superintendents, who arrange for afternoon demonstrations and oversee the quilt display during the length of the fair.

Entries are open to the public, quilts are professionally judged, and prizes are given for each division. Quilts do not need to be pre-registered. The prizes are made possible by monetary donations from the guild and other local businesses. Guild members volunteer to hang and take down the quilts, as well as sell tickets for our raffle quilt.
