The ladies of the Knox County Kut-Ups Quilting Club are excited to invite quilt makers and collectors to show their quilts during this year’s Quilt Show at the Corn Festival in Edina.
The quilt show venue is the Knox County Community Center in Edina.
The Knox County Corn Festival Quilt Show is an opportunity for everyone to bring in quilts to showcase regional talented quilt makers past and present. The venue has been known to feature antique to newly crafted pieces submitted by the quilt makers themselves and others.
The quilt show offers a showcase for sewn together works of art from beginner to advanced quilters of all ages.
Hosting the quilt show in conjunction with the annual Corn Festival brings a diverse swath of visitors from die-hard quilt enthusiasts to festival goers that wouldn’t otherwise take in a quilt show.
There are no fees to submit quilts to be included in the show, and the quilt show is open to everyone free of charge.
The club will be accepting quilt show entries on Friday afternoon, September 8, from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the community center, 207 N. Fourth St. in Edina.
The quilt show will be held on Saturday, September 9, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., and quilt entries will be released between 4:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. following the show.
The ladies of the club have been busy crafting and donating door prizes to be raffled off during the show, organizing a silent auction, which is new this year, and promoting this year’s raffle quilt, which was pieced and put together by club members throughout the winter, spring and early summer of 2023.
Chances for this year’s raffle quilt are being sold by members ahead of the Corn Festival and will be offered during the show. The raffle quilt drawing will be held on Saturday afternoon at 3:00 p.m. during the quilt show. The raffle quilt winner is not required to be present during the drawing.
