Quilters by the Sea will be holding their next quilt show, “A Bouquet of Quilts,” on May 4-5, 2019 at the Pennfield School in Portsmouth, RI (110 Sandy Point Ave). The show will include vendors offering supplies, fabrics and other items of interest. There will be more than a hundred quilts made by our members, a raffle quilt and raffle baskets, a boutique table selling hand-made items, and demonstrations of quilting techniques. Hours are Sat 10 – 5:00 and Sunday 10 – 3:00. Price is $8 per person and children under 12 are free.
When entering a quilt in a show, it is so important to prepare it for hanging. If you would like instructions on making a hanging sleeve, check out these instructions Making a 4 inch sleeve. It is also important to label your quilt, not only for the show, but for posterity. You will find instructions here on Labeling your quilt.
