Publicity for the 2018 QUILT SHOW
MLQG would like to put a small quilt in each of the downtown merchants’ store windows with the information for our show. The visual impact will attract visitors to read the information about the show. The quilts will be sold, with the money collected going to a charity to be determined. We just want small quilts (11” by 14” or a circumference of 50”). Please call Deborah Dom if you need more information.
Feel free to start making these quilts now so that we have enough to cover the downtown business in Wellsboro and some out of town businesses!
