Memorial Day 2019 weekend The Hill Country Quilt Guild (HCQG) will present its biannual quilt show, “Quilting IS Art”, at the Hill County Youth Center, 3785 TX HWY - 27, in Kerrville, TX. The Youth Center will be filled with more than 175 judged quilts plus a boutique with hand-made items available for sale. Fabric and notions, jewelry, wood work, etc., vendors will also have items for sale. Raffle tickets will be available for our donation quilt “Razzle Dazzle” shown below. Always a show favorite, the “Scissors’ Sharpening Man” will be present to sharpen any scissors or knives.
The show will be open from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm on Friday, May 24, and Saturday, May 25, and from noon to 4:00 pm on Sunday, May 26. Admission is $7.00 per person and children under 12 will be admitted for free. This show is the major fund-raising project for HCQG. The money raised enables the Guild to offer programs and classes by nationally known quilt instructors as well as local artists. The activities of the HCQG encourage the continuation and appreciation of the art of quilt making as well as member education.
Members of the HCQG make and donate quilts to Any Baby Can, The Crisis Council Center, the State Hospital patients, VA Hospital patients, Star Ranch for Boys, K’Star, Threads of Love, and area nursing homes. Membership in the Guild is open to anyone who would like to join. Meetings are the third Monday of each month with the exception of December when no meeting is held.
