Submit your photos for Faces of the Quilters!

Submit your photos for
Faces of the Quilters! 
Are you a quilter? Do you love quilts? Collect them? Do you know other like-minded folks? We're collecting photos to show the diversity of the quilting community. . .and some of their thoughts about life and quilting and the things that inspire them.
These photos will become part of a grand collage stretching down "Main Street" at International Quilt Festival this fall, a red carpet display of women and men whose passion for this great American art form has now circled the globe. . .all in celebration of Festival's Ruby Jubilee, its 40th anniversary! 
For 40 years, people who love and value quilts have attended Festival and we want everyone to be represented in this great tribute to the needle artists who have kept. . .and are keeping. . .quilting alive and thriving!  
But you don't have to limit yourself to current quilters! You can send in a photo of a grandmother who quilted, a great-aunt you inherited a quilt from, friends who love quilts, your favorite quilt shop owner, a daughter who is learning to quilt from you today. In short, we want the full range of our community to be on view, showing the diversity and inclusiveness of quilting. 
Find all of the details about how you and your quilting bee friends, your quilt guild contacts, your art quilting buddies, your church group can be recognized for their commitment to fabric, needle, thread at the link below. 
We hope to hear from you soon!
