2014 Empire QuiltFest Wrap-Up

What a great weekend and what a great show! It felt like we all won. Thank you to all members who entered quilts, volunteered to work at the show and guild booth, and participated in the show activities — each of you contributed to the show’s success. Special thanks to QN EQF reps Martha Hadarics, Gwen Heekin, Angie Bess and Ann Pastore for their hard work.

Here is a list of QN members who found ribbons on their quilts. A complete list is available on the show’s Facebook page. Congratulations to all the winners and to those who received vendor’s ribbons!
