|WSQ Quilts Grace the Shops and Businesses in La Conner, WA|
60 quilts diplayed in WSQ Quilt Show afterwards
WSQ was asked to supply small wall quilts for displaying in shops and other businesses in La Conner and our members responded with 60 quilts!
This was part of the quilt and fiber arts festival sponsored by the La Conner Quit and Fabric Museum. Our quilts were on display from September 1 to October 15.
After they were taken down, Pat Means drove over to La Conner to pick up the 60 quilts. She received a private tour of the museum and thought that this would be an exciting destination for us Spokane quilters. The next day she drove back in time for them to be displayed at our own quilt show!
Nancy Anders, who coordinated the Quilt Walk in La Conner said in a note of thanks that the owners were happy to have quilts on display and they enjoyed the beautiful array of colors and techniques.
In a thank you letter, the museum said:â€œ ..thank you for gracing the town of La Conner with your spectacular quilts! We were overjoyed to see the high quality of work presented for the Quilt Walk this year, and visitors took notice. While the Quilt Walk serves a small fundraising role by bringing over $1000 to the museumâ€™s $345,000 operating budget, it has a much larger effect on our community. The Quilt Walk is a visual demonstration of the increasing impact that quilting and the fiber arts are having in the world. For many people, seeing these quilts unexpectedly appear in their favorite clothing or gift shop is a wonderful surprise that opens their eyes to the talent and love encompassed in the mastery of fabric. It also serves as a reminder of the impact that guilds like Washington State Quilters make with programs such as â€œMountain of Quilts.â€We applaud your vast impact in the community, and we deeply appreciate the efforts made by all who contributed work to the La Conner Quilt Walk and entrusted us with your creationsâ€¦"
