The Award Winning Quilt Show continues a long tradition of outstanding needlework exhibits at the Bondville Fair.  Quilt-making is an original American craft which has seen an enormous revival in this country in the last 25 years, and has spread abroad, especially to Japan and Europe. This year our show will be in the Elizabeth Crichton Crafts Hall for three days:

Entries must be brought to the Quilt Barn by 10:00 a.m. on Friday August 26 and picked up by 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, the 28th, but not before 4:00 p.m. Quilts may also be brought to Barn on Thursday, the 25th from 4:00 - 8:00pm.
