Austin Area Quilt Guild Changing Gears Quilt Show

The Austin Area Quilt Guild will be hosting Changing Gears Quilt Show on Friday, September 17 thru Sunday, September 19, 2010 at The Parmer Events Center located at 900 Barton Springs Blvd in Austin, Texas. More than 400 quilts will be on display along with more than 65 vendors in attendance. There will also be a Boutique Sale featuring handmade items, a silent auction, children's activities, live demonstrations, wearable art as well as a chance to win a spectacular raffle quilt. This is the first year at The Parmer Events Center and also the first year that some of the quilts will be offered for sale. Today, I helped hang the show. Got to meet a whole lot of nice folks and see all the amazing talent in Austin. The show will be judged by De Leclair, Connie Silber, Marilyn Hardy, Nell Smith and Serena Stiles Vrnak. There will also be a Studio Art Quilt Associates booth featuring 12 X 12 quilts from some of Texas' finest artists. So much happening under one roof and close to beautiful Lady Bird Johnson Lake.

Added on Monday, September 20, 2010: Generation Y: Song of Hope placed second in the 400 Category Art Quilts, Large and Small at The Austin Area Quilt Guild Changing Gears Quilt Show. Little Rascals received an Honorable Mention, an overall award for Creativity in small quilts division and Judges Choice by Nell Smith. When I helped hang the show, I thought to myself I would be doing good to get an Honorable Mention. You can imagine how surprised I was at the award ceremony on Thursday evening. Competition was stiff. So much talent under one roof. I am humbled to be a part of this wonderful Austin community.
