Greetings from Best of the Valley Quilt Show! It's time to mark your calendars, as our 18th annual show is quickly approaching. Show dates are April 12, 13, 14, 2013, at McDermont Field House in Lindsay, CA.
BOTV is brought to you by a dedicated band of quilt aficionados. We are not a guild, we are a committee, a community organization, if you will. Our committee members come from many local communities, and are members of a number of local quilt guilds. We love quilts, quilting, and quilters, and because of this, we strive to make our show the best in the valley.
Entry forms for the upcoming show are already available online. The deadline for entry is February 22, 2013. Entry is open to all. We especially encourage local quilters (San Joaquin Valley) to enter their work. There are so many exciting things happening in the valley, this is the perfect venue in which to share and inspire others.
This year we have a special treat for you, as our "Featured Artist" is The Committee. That's right! This year, quilts made by the ladies who bring you BOTV will be out in the spotlight, front and center. I think you will enjoy the variety of styles exhibited by our broad spectrum of committee members. We are always encouraging others to enter the show, the best way to do this is to lead by example.
We will again have many of the features you've come to expect. Vendor space is close to sold out, if not already gone. The 2012 Hoffman Challenge quilts have been reserved. The dolls will be back, with another new and exciting exhibit. We continue our relationship with McDermont Field House in Lindsay, CA, as one of the most often heard comments is, "Please hold the show here again next year!"
As you can see, plans are well underway. Mark your calendars, submit your entries, and plan to join us in April. It's the best quilt show in the Valley, and you don't want to miss it!
On behalf of the committee,
Chairman, Best of the Valley
