If you’re headed to Austin for QuiltCon next week (Feb. 21-24), come see us in the Quilt Alliance booth (#107). We’ve created a special Scavenger Hunt to introduce you to projects like Quilters’ S.O.S. – Save Our Stories and The Quilt Index. And everyone who plays will receive one of our brand new Quilt Alliance quilt labels (below) and a chance to win an even bigger prize.

labelimageJust download the Scavenger Hunt form before you leave home or come by our booth (#107) to pick one up. Then use the Quilt Alliance and Quilt Index websites to find the answers. Answer the questions and bring your form, including your contact information, to our booth at QuiltCon during show hours. All those who submit a completed form will receive a special quilt label in our booth and be entered to win one of six copies of Why Quilts Matter: History, Art and Politics, a landmark nine-part documentary series. This two-DVD set includes 9 episodes and 7 bonus features.

Generously donated by Shelly Zegart, executive producer and host for the series and co-founder of The Kentucky Quilt Project and the Quilt Alliance. All winners will be announced the week of February 25 here and on the Quilt Alliance Facebook page. Prizes will be mailed to winners the same week.
