The Crystal Coast Quilters’ Guild will present its 31st Annual Show which will be at the Crystal Coast Civic Center, 3505 Arendell Street in Morehead City, NC, Friday, May 17 and Saturday, May 18, 2013 from 9am to 5pm each day. Admission is only $6 and children under 12 are admitted free!
Visitors can purchase tickets to win the 2013 Opportunity Quilt which will be awarded on Saturday, May 18 at 4:30pm. (Need not be present to win.) Tickets are $2.00 each or 3 for $5.00 and can be purchased from guild members or at the show.
Special exhibits which will appeal to the art community are two travelling exhibits. A special trunk show, “This Is a Quilt”, will showcase a collection of Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA) members’ creations. SAQA members are well known internationally and this is the first time an exhibit of theirs has been offered locally.
The second special exhibit is from the Artrageous Quilters’ 2013 Collection. Their work is “back by popular demand” and will surely please viewers as much as the past exhibits have.
The Crystal Coast Quilters’ Guild (CCQG) is a non-profit organization of quilters in eastern North Carolina dedicated to furthering the art of quilting.
Since 1982, our guild members have included quilters from several counties near Morehead City, as well as out-of-state members. In addition to hosting an annual quilt show each spring, members make and donate quilts to support local community charitable projects. The guild is committed to education and sponsors several workshops throughout the year, in addition to programs presented at the monthly meetings.
Guild membership is open to the public, and we invite you to join us at a meeting soon. Come and see what the Crystal Coast Quilters’ Guild has to offer you!
