Lake to Lake Quilt Guild will hold our 2020 Quilt Show " Spring into Color - Hawaiian Style" on Friday, April 10 and Saturday, April 11, 2020 from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm both days at the Geneva Community Center, 160 Carter Rd, Geneva, NY 14456. Nancy Lee Chong, renowned Hawaiian Applique expert and former owner of Pacific Rim Quilts, will be our guest lecturer. She has two lectures scheduled; her Friday afternoon lecture will be "Hawaiian Appplique - History, Tradition, Superstitions" and Saturday morning will be: "Confessions of an Applique Addict".
In addition, noted Quilt Appraiser, Eugenia Barnes, who was among the first licensed quilt appraisers in the USA, will delight our attendees with her often entertaining stories during a bed turning. A bed turning is a lecture about quilts that have been piled upon a bed on center stage. Eugenia will speak about age, color of fabrics, style, and history of the quilts. This is always one of our most popular events at our shows.
New this year are presentations by The Finger Lake Barn Trail group who are trying to establish a Barn Trail route where people can drive by and look at all of the different quilt blocks that are popping up on local barns in the Finger Lakes. If you have a place to display a quilt block on your barn and are interested they will provide information.
Our show has two special exhibits from Rochester Area Fiber Arts group and the Quilter's Consortium of NY (QCNYS) Challenge Quilt Exhibit entitled, " Still Crazy" featuring crazy quilts of all kinds. Our Lake to lake Quilt Guild have loads of beautiful quilts to show you. Enjoy our vendor's mall, Gift Gallery, and Quilter's Cafe will be open. Our ticket price is $6, children under 12 are free but must be accompanied by an adult.
We like to give back to our community as well. This year our Raffle Quilt Proceeds will be donated to the local cancer support group, "Thrive to Survive".
