How You Can Be a Winner .....Twice!

Many of you attend the various Quilt Festivals put on by the Mancuso Show Management. One of my favorite things about their shows is that they strongly encourage entries from around the world. It's a great opportunity to see what people outside of the US are making.

The Mancuso brothers recently made a huge commitment to people of Japan. For every quilt accepted into all of their 2011 quilt com­­petitions, they will donate $10.00 to the relief of the victims of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami. So if you enter any of the following competitions you are actually donating money to our Japanese friends and quilters.
2011 World Quilt Co­mpetition
• International deadline: May 20, 2011

• Entry deadline: August 12, 2011

2011 Pacific International Quilt Festival
