10th Annual ACC Customer Quilt Show
Asheville Cotton Co. is excited to announce the dates of the 2020 Asheville Cotton Co. Customer Quilt Show.
This is the quilt show for the rest of us. The Customer Quilt Show is different from other shows in that you don’t have to be an expert to enter the show or to win. Any size project is welcome. Projects don't even have to be quilted or bound!
This year, the show will be different! Send us a picture of your quilt or project to firstname.lastname@example.org. We'd especially like to see your quilt on your porch or with flowers, but it's not a requirement. Something very cheery and spring-y!
Include in your email:
1) Your name
2) Name of the Quilt
3) Name of the book or pattern if you happen to know
4) The quilt's "story." Every quilt has a story. What's the story about this one? Who is it for? Why do you like it? What did you learn? That sort of thing.
We'll post pictures of the quilts on our website and on our Facebook page.
Voters will get a free vote for their favorite quilt on the Facebook page, and may also choose to make a donation toward any quilt or quilts on our website. You're encouraged to vote on your own quilt, and get your family and friends involved as well! 100% of all donations will once again go to MANNA FoodBank right here in Asheville.
MANNA FoodBank is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization serving Western North Carolina since 1983 and an accredited member of Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger relief organization. In fiscal year 2018/2019 MANNA distributed 19.8 million pounds of food through some 200+ community-based food assistance agencies in 16 Western North Carolina counties.
Quilt makers whose quilts receive the most money in donations to MANNA will win valuable prizes! We'll also have prizes for the most popular quilts on Facebook, but remember, the purpose of this show is to raise money, so the best prizes will go to the entries that earn the most money. This event typically raises several thousand dollars each year. Over the years, Asheville Cotton Co. and our customers have contributed more than $20,000 to MANNA FoodBank. That's more than 60,000 meals!
We're taking quilt picture entries through Sunday, May 31.
We don't know exactly how long it will take to get the show up on the website and Facebook, so we'll be letting you know that later. Thanks for understanding :-)
