Details for an upcoming quilt and media show hosted by the Albuquerque Fiber Arts Council are detailed below. Entries are open to members of guilds only. This is going to be a really amazing show and a great place to showcase your Route 66 themed work!
Exhibit Theme: Route 66
When: November 7-9, 2014
Where: Old San Isidro Church in Corrales on Old Church Road
The Education Committee of AFAC is presenting an integrated media display open to members of the 17 co-sponsoring guilds. Displays of works will be set up on tables and hanging devices throughout the space to showcase the various eras and geographic areas found along Route 66. The route extends from Chicago to Los Angeles and involves 8 states: Illinois, Missouri, Kansas (one corner), Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California.
There will be no jurying or judging of the submissions. Photos of your entries are due October 1, 2014. Further information will be on the website, fiberartsfiesta.org, under Education.
Education is the focus of the exhibit. We want to show what guild members do in their particular discipline. There will be demonstrations in the stage area.
The quilt committee has set limitations on the sizes of quilt entries because of space limitations. The quilts can be up to 36” wide and up to 48” long. Each quilt must have a 4” sleeve sewn on the back and have a label with the quilter’s name, address and the name of the quilt.
