PURPOSE / GOAL of the EXHIBIT
Dallas Quilt Celebration is one of the largest quilt shows in the country, with an average show attendance of between 9,000-10,000 each year.
The goal of the exhibit is to highlight quilts from all the Modern Guilds in Texas and introduce Modern Quilting to Dallas Quilt Celebration attendees who may not have had a chance to view a Modern Quilt up close!
We also see this exhibit as a way to highlight Modern Quilt Guilds across Texas and recognize the important impact and and influence these guilds are having on our quilting communities.
PLAN for the EXHIBIT
We plan to accept up to 60 quilts on a first submission basis for this exhibit.
In order to adequately showcase all the Modern Quilt Guilds from throughout Texas, we will reserve 5 exhibit slots for each Modern Guild in Texas for entries until Jan 15, 2013. These entries can be from any member of your Guild and will have not special recognition in the Exhibit, but rather will just assure that we have representation from all Modern Guilds in Texas that elect to participate. Once each Guilds 5 exhibit slots are filled, any further quilt entries from that Guild will move to the remaining 30 exhibit slots, which will be filled on a first submission basis from all Guilds until we reach a total of 60 quilts.
After Jan 31, 2013 any open exhibit slots that have not been filled will be open to entries from any Modern Guild.
The following information and entry form should answer most of your questions regarding this exhibit, but please do not hesitate to email Cathy Bryan at email@example.com if you have any additional questions.
Please complete the following entry form and upload up to 6 photos of the quilt to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please put your name and the name of the quilt in the email.
Entries will be accepted until Feb 18, 2013. Any of the 5 exhibit slots reserved for each of the Modern Guilds that has not been filled will convert to an Open Exhibit Slot available for entries from any Guild member. You will be notified on or before February 24, 2013 regarding the process for quilt drop off / pick up, as well as shipping information for quilts that are not being delivered or picked up in person.
There is no size limit for quilt entries. Display Rules will follow the Dallas Quilt Celebration Entry Rules. Refer to www.quiltersguildofdallas.org/quiltcelebration2013 for information regarding hanging sleeves and quilt delivery bags.
Thank you for entering your quilt! We look forward to a wonderful exhibit of Modern quilts from ALL the Modern Quilt Guilds of Texas!
