Quilts Welcomed for Expo in Blue Earth

Calling all quilts!  Plans are being finalized for the 34th Annual Upper Midwest Woodcarvers and Quilt EXPO to be held on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, August 18, 19, and 20, at Blue Earth Area High School.  2017 Featured Quilter is Lorraine Hassing of Blue Earth. Quilts of all kinds that have not appeared in previous EXPOs – new or old, large or small – are invited to be displayed according to Quilt Chair Mike Ellingsen.  Heartland Embroidery and the Chamber of Commerce in downtown Blue Earth as well as Calico Hutch Quilt Shop in Hayward have graciously agreed to remain drop-off points for quilts.  In order to be displayed in the show, quilts should be left at any of those businesses by Wednesday, August 17.  Information forms to fill out to tell the story of each quilt will also be available there. For more information please contact Mike Ellingsen at 507.526.5808.
