Quiltcon 2021 – To Be virtual. Due to all the changes of social gatherings this event will take on a new appearance for 2021. We will bring you details of classes and quilt submission deadlines as they are clarified and communicated to us.
Here are the guidelines for what was previously known as the Quiltcon Charity Quilt. Now is the time to start to generating ideas. We will be organizing a committee for a guild wide quilt submission. You may also form your own group and submit your own quilt. Find more details at this link Outreach Quilt Challenge
