“New Directions”

Shadow Mountain Quilters 2020 Opportunity Quilt


The theme for our 2020 show is “New Directions”. The venue this year will be at the Bob Ruud Community Center. Along with many beautiful quilts, our annual quilt show in Pahrump also displays items such as knitting, crochet, cross stitch, apparel, and other fiber arts.  Ribbons are awarded in several categories, for both quilt and non-quilt items, and include cash prizes for 1st and 2nd place.

Because of limited space at the community center, this year’s show entries are open to Shadow Mountain Quilters members only. Must be a member as of January 1, 2020. Please get your paperwork turned in to enter your work. Entry deadline is February 14, 2020.  Your entry does not have to be finished yet.

Ribbons will be awarded for “Best Use of Theme”, “Most Humorous” and “People’s Choice.”

Monda has said that she will bring a notebook with photos of ideas to guild meetings. Pinterest and YouTube are also great places to look for ideas, inspiration and instructions. Use Google to look up “quilted postcards”
