SACKETS HARBOR, N.Y. - Due to the popularity of the traveling exhibit of historic-style quilts, which are selected from the spring Great Lakes Seaway Trail War of 1812 Quilt Show, the call is going out for 1812-style fabric works of art for a reprise event titled Great Lakes Seaway Trail 1812.
The Great Lakes Seaway Trail Discovery Center in Sackets Harbor, N.Y., will host the show Saturday, Sept. 29 and Sunday, Sept. 30.
Show Manager Lynette Lundy-Beck is asking for quilters who enjoyed making a quilt for the spring event to enter in the fall exhibit. She also invites quilters who wanted to make a quilt in the spring, but did not, as well as those who may have started, but not finished, an entry for the spring show to enter the fall exhibit as well.
The show's relaxed entry guidelines accept quilt tops using 1812-true patterns, colors and fabrics along with any completed quilts. The entry deadline is Friday, Sept. 21.
The show will include vendors and encouragement for entries for the March 2013 Great Lakes Seaway Trail Quilt Show with an international "Beauty of the Byways" theme.
An 1812 theme Great Lakes Seaway Trail walking event, sanctioned by the American Volkssport Association, will take place starting at 9 a.m. at the Sept. 29 at the Great Lakes Seaway Trail Discovery Center.
To participate in the Sept. 29 Great Lakes Seaway Trail 1812 Walking Event, contact Great Lakes Seaway Trail Volkssport Association President Daryl Giles at (315) 646-1000 x200 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
