Would you like to showcase that quilt or quilted wall hanging you spent hours designing, piecing and quilting? The Sycamore Stitchers Quilting Group of Elizabethton, Tennessee invites you to submit an entry for their 21st Annual Quilt Show.
Sycamore Stitchers Quilt Show is entering its 21st year and there is always something new and exciting at each show. Today’s quilters will surely leave a rich legacy for future generations.
The categories are as follows: Hand Quilted Bed Quilts, Machine Quilted Bed Quilts, Baby Quilts, Long Arm Quilted Bed Quilts, Juvenile/Lap Quilts, Holiday Wall Hangings, Large Wall Hangings, Small/Miniature Wall Hangings, Sycamore Stitchers Challenge and Antiques. This year our challenge is called “Scrap Happy Spinning”. It must contain at least 10 different fabrics, at least 2 inches of stripped fabric (doesn’t have to be all in one piece), and must contain a spinning effect block. The exhibit will showcase talent that will be judged only by the spectators. A People’s Choice Award will be given in 9 categories excluding antique quilts.
There is no fee to enter the Sycamore Stitchers Quilt Show. There is a limit of 1 entry per person due to limited space. All entries must comply with the rules and regulations for the show. Registration forms will be available August 13, 2015. Registration ends September 12, 2015. Free information and applications can be obtained at the UT Extension Office in Carter County, Sycamore Shoals State Historic Area, Elizabethton and area fabric shops or by contacting Carolyn Buckles at 423-474-2682, or Jeanie Johnson at 423-542-6173.
