Panguitch Quilt Walk Festival
The Panguitch Quilt Walk Festival is over for another year. I am glad in some ways and sad in others. It is a huge job getting ready for it, but I have the greatest volunteers to help me that it is really fun. This year it started with the Chocolate Festival on Wednesday night. What could be better than quilting and chocolate. People donated all sorts of chocolate items and wonderful things for a silent auction. We had entertanment, fun and lots of chocolate. All the money raised from this event goes to our Quilt Walk Park.
Thursday starts classes. We had 43 classes over the 3 days. It was really fun. We had free trunk shows everyday with lots of door prizes. There are so many generous people in the quilting community. We also have a historic home tour, dinner theater, heritage fair.. something for everyone.
We ask the ladies to bring pillow cases and we donated 41 pillowcases to the Garfield Memorial Hospital. They were so fun and the hospital was glad to recieve the.
We had lots of vendors, hung beautiful quilts and had great classes. What could be better? You come to Panguitch, which is 22 miles from Bryce Canyon National Park, 1 hour from Zions National Park and 2 1/2 hrs from the Grand Canyon. You can bring your family and send them off to see the country and you can come and play with us. Mark it on your calendar for next year. It's always the 2nd weekend in June. Our website is www.quiltwalk.com.
Tommorrow I will show you more pictures and the class I taught. Way too much fun!
