2018 HOF Quilt Show

The 33rd Annual Quilt Show of the Hands of Friendship Quilt Guild was held at the William Matthew Middle School in Kirksville, Missouri, on June 1 and 2nd, 2018. Over 140 quilts were on display. Viewer’s Choice awards were given for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in each of 12 categories.

The theme of this year’s show was “Pass the Traditions… to Future Generations”. It’s so important that we pass the quilting traditions on to future generations. Part of the Community Service work the guild did earlier in the year was to help Kirksville area Girl Scouts.  Scouts learned about quilting and how to construct a block. Those blocks were on display at the show.

Other special displays included the Community Service corner with Beads of Courage bags, the raffle quilt, our annual Bed Turning, a display to honor Kathy and Stan East, and a display to honor Kimberlynn Bartlett. The highlight of the show was the Veteran’s presentation which honored five local area Veterans with special quilts made by several guild members.

In addition to all that excitement, there were over 12 vendors in attendance, providing a variety of quilting-related goodies for all. New this year, was “Nana’s Second Thoughts”, a booth with lots of unusual items for sale. These new and gently used items were donated by members throughout the year and beautifully packaged for resale.

After awards were presented, the 2018 raffle quilt winner was drawn. Andrea O’Brien was the lucky winner!

The 31st Annual HOF Quilt Show

The 31st Annual HOF Quilt Show was held June 3 – 4, 2016 at its new location, the William Matthew Middle School, in Kirksville, Missouri. Over 150 quilts were displayed to the delight of attendees. Eleven vendors surrounded the quilt show, offering a variety of items for sale, from fabric to wooden treasure boxes. A “Vendor Shop Hop” was a new addition this year, allowing attendees the opportunity to get their “passport” signed at each vendor in hopes of winning a HUGE basket of items donated by each vendor. This year’s winner was Marsha Redmon.

The Raffle Quilt Committee outdid itself once again with the beautiful blue and white paper pieced medallion quilt. Andrea O’Brien was this year’s lucky winner of that gorgeous quilt!

Everyone enjoyed the Historical Bed Turning, the Community Service Corner, the demonstrations, and the “Sit and Sew for Veterans” area.

A happy and unexpected moment happened when Glee Hanson and her sister, Joy, came to the show. Glee was one of the charter members of the Hands of Friendship Quilt Guild in 1985. She and Kay Beach are the only charter members in attendance. Glee brought a quilt from 1992 that all HOF Guild members had signed for her. Several of those members were there and came together for pictures.

The setup began bright and early. Lots to do this first year at the new location. Some ideas worked like clockwork, other things needed adjustment, but all-in-all, it was a great show. Check out the photos of setup, vendor booths, and other things.
