Main Street quilt show for kids  Send a link to a friend

Any youth quilters out there?

[October 17, 2007]  Main Street Lincoln invites children up to the age of 18 to show quilts at a first-time event in downtown Lincoln. The quilt show will be made up entirely of quilts made by kids. Starting Nov. 2, the quilts will be on display at the Action Rentals and Sales store, 101 S. Kickapoo St. The show will remain open to the public during regular store hours through Dec. 15.

Anyone up to age 18 may enter a quilt that they have helped make or made by themselves.

A basket of quilting supplies will be given to the maker of the "viewer's choice" quilt. Each person viewing the show is invited to pick their favorite quilt and vote for it. The quilt with the most votes wins. The viewer's choice award will be presented at noon on Dec. 15.

Children may also choose to auction their quilt in a silent auction for money.

Main Street is accepting entries into this show now. There is no charge to enter or to see the show. Call Sue Bidwell at 217-732-3464 or Action Rentals and Sales at 217-735-2333 to pick up an entry form. If you want to enter a quilt but cannot get the form before Oct. 31, bring the quilt in between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Oct. 31 and fill out the entry form then.
