 Quilt Show 2022 Wrap Up

The DMQ 2022 Quilt Show was a resounding success thanks to the many volunteers who helped before, during and after the show; and to the quilters who entered their beautiful and unique quilts.

If you weren't able to attend, you can get a flavor for the show here.

Comments included:
"This is astounding!"
"Well worth it!"

Out of town visitors included two vans with women from Bluff, people from Montrose, Silverton, Farmington, Durango and Japan.

675 visitors attended the show
Over 50 quilters entered 149 quilts
421 ballots for quilt favorites were cast and counted
Gross receipts for the show totaled more than $10,000. 
Net profits will be calculated after all expenses have been submitted and totaled. 
Profits support local not-for-profit organizations and quilting educational programs.

88 volunteers worked Wednesday-Saturday getting ready for, working at, and disassembling the show. Everyone worked hard, and someone always stepped up when a job needed to be done.

Three vendors sold fabric, quilt patterns and notions. The Dolores Mountain Quilters’ own sales boutique was swamped with buyers gathering up fabric, wall hangings, baby bibs, handmade stuffed toys, Christmas ornaments and more.

The Best of Show award went to Jenifer Ibscher for her crazy quilt “Piecemakers Time and Seasons 2022” (See image below).

The raffle quilt, “Blue Bird’s Bounty”, winner is Barbara Zeutzius from Mancos.

The Dolores Mountain Quilters Guild was established in 1994 and currently has 110+ members.
Meetings are the first Tuesday of every month at 10 a.m. at the Dolores Community Center. Beginners and visitors are welcome. Annual membership dues are $25.

Monthly meetings include a program of either a demonstration or hands-on workshop. We also sponsor special demonstrations, day-long workshops featuring regional and nationally known artists and retreats.

The Guild supports the community with dozens of quilts donated to families, children, veterans and individuals in need and to nonprofit organizations for fundraising; and annual cash contributions that support nonprofit service organizations. Since 2003, the Guild has donated more than 770 quilts, 900 children’s Christmas stockings and $33,000 in cash donations. The Guild hosts classes taught by Guild members and regional and national instructors.
