Quilt guild invites entries for fall show




LAKE COUNTY – The Ladies of the Lake Quilt Guild invites all Lake and Mendocino County quilters to enter quilts in its seventh annual Falling Leaves Quilt Show.

Donna James, chairman of the show committee, reminds quilters, “Remember, the item does not have to be finished already, just entered!”

The Ladies of the Lake Quilt Guild is inviting entries now to give quilters time to prepare for the show. The deadline to submit entry forms is Saturday, Aug. 2, and quilts must be ready for display Oct. 3.

Entry forms and details are available from the quilt guild’s Web site, www.LLQG.org, or contact Donna at 262-1201. Mail completed entry forms to Ladies of the Lake Quilt Guild, P.O. Box 875, Kelseyville, CA, 95451.

Quilters may choose to have their quilts judged for a small fee, or to enter quilts for free without judging. Many quilters find it beneficial to have their quilts judged, learning much from an impartial evaluation. The judge will award ribbons in several areas

Show organizers expect to display more than 200 quilts in this show, which will be held at the Lake County Fairgrounds Saturday, Oct. 4, and Sunday, Oct. 5.

Among the other attractions will be the works of featured quilter internationally-known Judy Mathieson, vendors, prize drawings, a silent auction and the Country Store boutique. Watch for more publicity as the time grows near.

LLQG welcomes all quilters, prospective quilters and quilt lovers to its meetings and events.
