Quilters guild welcomes quilts for fall show

MIDDLEBURY — The Milk and Honey Quilters’ Guild is inviting quilters throughout the area to display their quilts in the guild’s fifth biennial show to be held on Oct. 12 and 13 at the Middlebury Recreation Center.
“Quilting in the Land of Milk and Honey is a great opportunity to display your quilting talents and share your passion for quilting with others in this non-judged show” says show co-chair Priscilla Leng.
The Middlebury Recreation Center offers a large and open space with plenty of room for quilts of all sizes; the guild encourages quilters of all skill levels, including local youth, to enter their quilts into the show. Entry forms for the show are available on the guild website and also at Quilter’s Corner at Middlebury Sew-N-Vac, located at 260 Court Street in the Hannaford’s plaza. 
In addition to show entries, there will be a section featuring quilts by Susan Gingras, a member of the guild and quilter for 40 years. A special section of the show will be dedicated to an exhibit of Quilts of Valor® made for veterans and active duty service members. The quilt show also features vendors, basket raffles, consignments, refreshments, and a raffle quilt. Members of the guild are also making holiday ornaments for purchase with the proceeds to benefit Habitat for Humanity of Addison County.
New this year will be American Quilter’s Society certified appraiser Sandra Palmer, who will be available by appointment to appraise antique and new quilts. The fee for an appraisal is $50 and for that you will receive a written appraisal based on fair market value. You can email [email protected] to schedule an appraisal in advance.
The entry fee is $5 for Guild members, $10 for non-members and free for youth who are 18 and younger.
