The Results Are In!

It may not be as huge as the Presidential Race, but our “Viewer’s Choice” awards are very important to our guild.

Guests and members are given a ballot, inserted into their Quilt Faire program. All eight categories of entries are listed and we ask for your favorite one in each. We understand that entries vary in complexity and technique – you need not worry about that. Which one YOU LIKE the best is what we want to know.

You don’t even need to tell us why!

Our Viewer’s Choice chairman collected all of the ballots at the shows close and crunches the numbers for us. In a week (or two), we have our Viewer’s Choice Awards. ALL entries are considered, even non guild members can receive a ribbon.
