Pacific Northwest Quiltfest, August 8 – 10, 2008

I am thrilled to have been selected as a finalist in the 8th biennial Pacific Northwest Quiltfest, August 8 – 10, 2008, at the Washington State Convention & Trade Center, Seattle, Washington.

The piece titled 'City in Green' will compete with 290 quilts and wearable art entries from the five northwestern United States and the four western provinces of Canada. Over $40,000 dollars in cash and major prizes, including top of the line sewing machines, will be awarded to winners in eleven categories.

The Association of Pacific Northwest Quilters, APNQ,
a non-profit organization, http://www.apnq.org/quiltfest/quiltfest.php, was founded in 1992 to encourage and reward quiltmakers of the geographical Pacific Northwest region by producing this popular regional event every two years. “We are extremely pleased with the very high standard of the quilts being created throughout our region in both traditional and innovative designs,” says Sharyn Cole, APNQ president. She adds, “Of the 587 entries juried, 291 were selected. The eighth Quiltfest will be an outstanding exhibition of the finest quilts being created in our region.”

The Pacific Northwest Quiltfest is open to the public from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm Friday and Saturday, and 10:00 am to 5:00 pm on Sunday. Admission is $10. For information contact the office of APNQ at (425) 558-1983 or visit the website at www.apnq.org.

Congratulations, Melody! We'll be in the Seattle area around that time. Hope we can catch up. How many years do you suppose that will take?
