MFood — We invite you to join us for the Friday Night Dinner, and you can buy lunch at the Armory! We are looking forward to trying delicious offerings from their new caterer.
M Quilts For Sale — We offer the quilt owner the chance to connect with a buyer. Check the first page of the Quilt Entry Form.

All quilts must have a 4" hanging sleeve (sewn or basted securely at top and bottom of sleeve) attached to the back and must be no longer than 86" from the bottom of the quilt to the top of the sleeve. Wall quilts must have a sleeve (minimum of 1") or loops appropriate to their size. All quilts must be labeled on the back with the name of the entrant.

Quilt entry forms must be postmarked by April 30, 2018.
Special thanks to all who volunteered and created this year’s ribbons.
Creative Quilters of Huntington were the organizers with Hands All Around Quilt Guild in Beckley. Log Cabin Quilters’ Guild made the embroidered centers, Connie Forth printed the category tails.
We award dozens of ribbons each year at our Quilt Festival. Over the years, we have been blessed with some talented groups who made our ribbons. WVQI is pleased to have these guilds as a part of our team.
