QUILT AMANA 2024
April 12, 2024 @ 9:00 am - April 14, 2024 @ 3:00 pm
Heritage Designs Quilting & Needlework presents the 4th annual QUILT AMANA quilt show and sale.
QUILT AMANA 2024 will be a showcase of over 200 gorgeous quilts, many of which will be offered for sale. The event will include award winning quilts, classic quilts, art quilts, and antique quilts with their modern reproductions and history in the “Found” Exhibition (see below for more details). Our featured guest quilter this year is the Central Iowa Textile Artists group, with a collection of eclectic art quilts made by individual members.
QUILTS FOR SALE : If you are looking for a quilt to purchase, whether it be a classic quilt, a modern quilt, an art quilt, or just a basic quilt to enjoy on your sofa at home. We have something for you!
VENDORS: This year our vendor line up will include Schanz Furniture and Refinishing with hardwood quilt display items and home décor; PGT Designs with hand-embroidery and applique designs, wool applique and kits; QUILT AMANA Quilters’ Market with finished quilted items, lap quilts and quilt themed home décor; and art quilts from Sue Kluber of Gypsy Soul Art. Additional vendors may be added.
FOUND: The Found exhibition is a growing and changing collection of antique, heirloom or previously forgotten quilts displayed with a brief history and a modern reproduction. The modern versions of these quilts are made original patterns if available, or with patterns drafted from the quilt itself. Each of the original quilts have a history, some are found as completed quilts, some are in excellent condition, some are found as blocks and incomplete tops, some are found used up and beyond repair. They have a history, not just of the fabric, pattern or time period, but of the person or people who made them. We may not know the entire story behind each individual quilt, but we know that they began with a person’s love, time and hard work, and we believe that is worth exploring, preserving and showcasing. We are excited to bring you another installment of “Found…quilts no longer lost to time” at QUILT AMANA 2024.
PRE-SHOW DINNER : Join us on Thursday April 11th for the QUILT AMANA Pre-Show Dinner. This year we welcome fiber artist Sue Kluber of Gypsy Soul Art who will be offering a lecture and trunk show featuring her beautiful art quilts. Many of her quilts are nature inspired, with images taken from her own photos and experiences. Sue employs raw edge applique and thread work techniques and even painting to create these beautiful pieces!
We hope to see you at QUILT AMANA, April 12-14 2024!
