2015 Quilt Show Summary
Over 300 quilts were on display as well as 30 vendors, including Dusty Farrell and Renae Haddadin, both national award winners, famous for their longarm quilting skills, books, and YouTube videos.
Our quilt show is the only professionally judged quilt show in Idaho. We have awards and prizes with a total value of over $3,000. There is also viewer’s choice voting on Friday of the show with ribbons awarded Saturday.
Artisans For Hope is a community-based, volunteer-driven nonprofit organization in the resettlement city of Boise, Idaho. Boise is one of over 200 resettlement communities across the United States providing safe haven to refugees from war torn countries. Nearly six thousand individuals from thirty-five countries call Boise their home. Over 20 quilts were displayed to reflect how their experiences are translated into quilts.
On Saturday afternoon, several Quilts of Valor were presented to women of the Armed Services.
Our wonderful show included our “Downton Abbey Goes Scrappy” raffle quilt, door prizes, Gift Garden with hand-crafted items, quilt block Silent Auction, vendors from our local area and out of state, and demonstrations from many of our vendors.
The 2015 Raffle Quilt “Downton Abbey Goes Scrappy” was won by Sharon Beidler.
We featured Boise quilt artists Kathleen Probst and Lisa Flowers Ross, two very talented fiber artists. Kathleen and Lisa were on hand to talk about techniques and display their art quilts. Their fabulous work certainly inspired us.
Mount Harrison Quilt Guild from the Rupert/Burley area of Idaho was our featured guest guild.
The 2015 Quilt Show Brochure listed exciting activities, special exhibits, demonstrations, shopping opportunities, and included a floor map.
