As the liaison between the Saskatoon Quilters Guild and the Saskatoon Creative Art Showcase Committee I would like to encourage our members to participate in the Saskatoon Exhibition this summer. This year the Saskatoon Exhibition is from August 4 to 9 and the theme is “Seasons”.
Last year our Showcase Committee was able to provide three alternate drop-off and pick-up locations other than Prairieland Park for entrants who may otherwise be away on the specific dates set up at Prairieland. Because that worked so well for some entrants we will be offering that service again.
Our committee was really pleased with the wonderful pieces that we received in the quilting and fibre art categories last year. With our Quilt Show in October this year I realize that most of you are very busy getting your projects ready for our show. The qualifications to enter pieces for the Exhibition are somewhat different from what we require for our Quilt Show. As examples: pieces do not have to be made within a certain time frame, and they could have been entered in previous shows. They can be entered for “Display Only’ or in the “Judged” category where ten pieces have to be entered in order for prizes to be awarded.
Once again we have great prizes in Quilting provided by Saskatoon Quilters Guild, 440 Quilt Shop, and Periwinkle Quilting. As well, there is a prize for Fibre Arts and a prize for Youth Quilting both provided by Periwinkle Quilting. During our long winter you may have kept busy with other creative art projects. There are also prizes awarded in knitting, crochet, stitchery, sewing, and original designs in stitching.
