Patriotic Quilt Show

June 16, 2019
Stodden Park, Butte

The Mining Museum in Butte invites you to participate in the 2019 Miners Union Week.  It is exciting to have another opportunity to show quilts to our community.  This show will be open to all quilters!  We hope to receive quilts from the entire SW Montana area.  Please ask your quilting friends who are not guild members to join us.  Quilt groups from area towns are especially invited.  These quilts will be displayed checkerboard style on the grass.  It will be beautiful and fun to see this colorful, interesting display of quilts.

Each quilt will be given to a veteran at a Presentation Ceremony at the new SW Montana Veterans Home to be open in Butte in 2020.  Your quilt will be a tribute of thanksgiving for their valor and service to our country.  As one who has given veterans a quilt, let me say they love them.  They are so grateful to be remembered, thanked and honored.
