Announcing a New Quilt Show!
Prizes: There will be “big”* prizes!
Juror: at least one juror (we think we can persuade old Fred Flubs from the Fibers dept of the local college to emerge from his hiding place amidst the dusty looms to peer at your images).
Catalogue: we hope to produce a lavish coffee table book (screw on legs included) which will be free with $100.00 s/h plus an annual opening fee of $30 to anyone who enters the show.
Dates: Entry deadline is April 1st. We will issue rejections, and a few acceptances by November 1st if you include an sae with a bonus prepayment of $10.
Entries: Entries must be completed within 6 months of entering the show and must have never been viewed by or shown to or at or with or from any other person than the maker including the cat.
Images: should be no greater than 5” x 7” or 6cm x 8cm at 396 ppi with exactly 1920 pp per top and bottom side. Files larger than 2 BM will be rejected, 1 BM is enough for anyone. Mbs are good but be careful with kbs especially those marked “dogs only”. Rewrite CDs. Make sure your camera has exactly 17 megapixels, these can be of any size.
Images should include the hands (at the top) and the feet (preferably at the bottom) of the quilt. These will later be recorded for identification. No fake quilt stands with plastic hands and feet please!
Artist statement: we expect a short artist’s bio, 3 words should be sufficient, but request a 300 page essay on the meaning of your quilt. We may edit this.
Size requirements: the horizontal measurements should not be greater by more than the square root of 9.5 x the height of your sewing machine needle. The left side vertical measurement, while it can be greater or less than the bottom edge of the quilt, should not exceed by more than a factor of 0.0062 the nebulous variance of the logarithmic multiple of the right. The circumference of your quilt cannot be less than the diameter but could be greater than the height as long as it does not exceed 50” (60 cm).
Sleeves: We request that the sleeves be made from rip stop nylon at least a foot deep (boot included) in a daisy print fabric so that our volunteers should have no difficulty in inserting the assorted left over plumbing pipes we use for display or in finding the sleeve. Of the quilt.
Sales: will definitely be encouraged. We will take only a modest 66.6% of the full price, or 72% of the best offer whichever you prefer.
Quilt Return:Quilts will be returned in 2021, please send a courier at that time to find them in our basement storage with excellent overhead lighting supplied by a 40 watt bulb. Flashlights available for a small extra charge.
Fees: a donation of at least $50 is requested, please send more if you can. It may help your chance of inclusion.
