Antrim’s Festival of Trees committee is pleased to extend an invitation to the greater community to exhibit holiday quilts and crafts during the 2016 Festival. The committee is seeking holiday quilts of all types, from wall hangings to bed-size, table toppers to stockings. Exhibited items will be placed throughout the historic James A. Tuttle Library. All items will be labeled with maker and an artist’s statement or brief description of pertinent information. Like the Festival itself, the exhibition is open to all, and seeks to provide a venue for sharing the talent and artistry of our greater community. The inaugural quilt exhibit last year, 2015, was very well received! We were grateful for the support of the Monadnock Quilt Guild and particularly Jim Burnham, who helped organize the exhibit and also donated the Raffle Quilt.
Items to be lent for display will need to be available from early November thru the first week of January. Volunteers will be needed for the Hanging-party which will be organized for the first week of November.
A holiday weekend tradition, the kickoff Open House event on the Saturday after Thanksgiving draws more than 600 visitors. The 2015 Open House is Saturday, November 28th, from 10-4 at the James A. Tuttle Library, 45 Main St., Antrim. Thousands of visitors from near and far enjoy the Festival throughout the season, which concludes January 2, 2016.
