Amish Country Quilt Show update

      Comments Off on Amish Country Quilt Show update

We’re expecting the Buckeye Event Center in Dalton, OH to be a busy place at the Amish Country Quilt Show this year! As some of you know, we moved the event to Dalton from Walnut Creek – the site of last year’s Expo – because the Expo Center we were using has closed. The new location is still in “Amish Country” and is only about a 30 minute drive North of where we were previously. The Center is right along Route 30, next to the famous P. Graham Dunn facility, making it an easy drive from all points… and easy to find as well.  We love the fact that there’s free parking too.

The preliminary exhibitor list has been posted on the quilt show website and it’s continuing to grow. The class list will be posted soon as well.  And don’t forget register for the quilt contest – you’ll find the link to the rules and application right on the home page.

I’m particularly looking forward to the quilt appraisals. In fact, I’m feeling that “Antiques RoadShow” type of anticipation. My quilt from grandma is priceless to me but I’ll be curious to know if the monetary value comes anywhere close to it’s high sentimental value.

Hope to see you there!

The Amish Country Quilt Show is April 8-10, 2010 at the Buckeye Event Center in Dalton, OH. Hours are 10am to 5pm daily. General admission is $7.00 per day and includes access to the vendor mall, quilt displays, contest quilts and Amish Quilting Bee. Seminars and workshops are available for additional fee. There will also be a 3-day Trained Sewing Instructor workshop held during the same time frame. More information can be found on the TSI website.
