Dedicated quilters live in Alaska too
DELTA JUNCTION, ALASKA… During the past few days I've been working on some ideas to make a quilt show in a county fair quilt exhibit. Some of the work is in earlier posts here.
In Fairbanks, Alaska, they do it at Tanana Valley State Fair. The "they" are some of the 200 members of Fairbanks' Cabin Fever Quilter's Guild.
The "show" quilts are quilts and quilted items entered in the fair's Division 24. The "what" is 45 minute narrated shows of the entry quilts. The "when" is every hour on the half hour for all 10 days of the fair.
It's not the guild's quilt show. It’s a fair quilt show. The guild members formally are fair supers, entry clerks, judges, quilt hangers, and taker-downers.
Conversation: Ideas for improving
Some of these ideas have been emailed to quilters here in Oregon as well as a few quilters back up in Delta Junction. It stimulated Pat White and she said she will read the ideas some time.
But then the following short series of emails came to pass. From Pat White and Dawn Grossmann—FrostyStitcher. These two quilters may be true Alaskan DQ's.
