Ribbons For Our Festival
Special thanks to all who volunteered and created this year’s ribbons. Log Cabin Quilters’ Guild of Elkins constructed the ribbons, & Connie Forth, Festival Chair, 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 have made our ribbons. WVQI is pleased to have these guilds as a part of our team.

Quilts For Sale
We offer the quilt owner the chance to connect with a buyer. If your quilt is for sale, then we will share your contact information with the potential purchaser.
There is a line on the Quilt Entry Form for you to communicate your wishes to us.
The quilts that are for sale are designated on the show floor by a special tag that directs the interested party to the front desk, where the quilt owner’s
contact information is available.
