33rd Annual Folk Art Quilt Show

Wow! What a wonderful show we had! SCM cannot thank enough all of the wonderful quilters who lent us their treasures, the volunteers who assisted with setting up and breaking down the show, and the visitors who supported the museum by attending this year’s 33rd Annual Folk Art Quilt Show.  It was a resounding success!  We have had so many glowing comments about the show.  Each year it just gets better and better.  And, I know many are anxious to learn who won this year’s raffle quilt, Ruby Slippers! South County Museum member Sandra Morrison won the quilt and is thrilled with it.  Again, we thank Evie Cherms, Mary Loftes, and April Gilroy for their generous donation.

So now for the Viewer’s Choice Winners! (pictures will be posted soon)

White Glove Volunteers Needed:

Due to the incredible amount of work necessary to realize a quality quilt show, volunteers are greatly appreciated to assist with set up and removal of the quilts. In addition, because viewers are not permitted to touch the quilts, white gloved ambassadors are also needed during the event to assist with viewing and to answer questions regarding individual quilts. If you would like to be a volunteer, please contact Associate Director Blaire Gagon at blaire@southcountymuseum.org; 401-783-5400.
