Strolling of the Heifers Quilt Expo – Gallery Wall Quilt Hanging Instructions

 

Strolling of the Heifers Quilt Expo

RIVER GARDEN GALLERY WALL
QUILT  SHOW INSTRUCTIONS

Gallery Wall Quilt Show will run from November 30 through December 28, 2018. 

Hanging schedule: Wednesday, November 28, 10 am to 4 pm, and Thursday, November 29, 9 am to 12 pm.

Take Down: All quilts must be picked up by Thursday, December 28th between 9:00 am and 4:00 pm.

Instructions:

  1. Each quilt exhibited in the show must have a 6” sleeve sewn on the back. To make a 6” sleeve, measure the width of the quilt and cut a piece of fabric the width x 12 1/2”. Stitch the short ends to hide raw edges. Fold strip in half lengthwise with right sides together. Stitch the length of the sleeve. Turn inside out and hand-stitch the top and bottom of the sleeve to the back at the top of your quilt.
    (For quilts that are 72″-100″ wide you will need to make two separate sleeves, leaving a one inch space between them in the middle for hanging hardware.)
  2. Please provide your own hanging hardware: dowel made of 1-2 inch diameter wood or pvc, hooks and wires. For large quilts over 72″ we can provide a long dowel and hanging hardware for an additional $15.  
  3. Apply a label (3.5″ x 2″) to the bottom right hand corner or supply a wall label. Include: your name and email address (optional), the title of your quilt and price, if you are selling.

Please feel free to call Vicki Friedman 802-246-0982, should you have any questions.
