The 18th Annual Quilt & Fiber Arts Show was a tremendous success, thanks to an army of volunteers, a supportive community and the Pahrump Arts Council.
The Pahrump Event Center on Calvada was a perfect venue for our growing show and was enjoyed by everyone who came, thank you Debbie Beatty for making this valuable resource available to the community.
Thank you to Mom’s Diner for providing fresh food with a smile in the Quilt Café and to the many vendors who offered a wide variety of unique shopping options. Thanks to the Boy Scouts for helping tear down at the end of the show.
Thanks to Skip Higginbotham for making even more racks to accommodate the growing number of entries, which this year numbered 92 quilts and 38 needlework creations. Thanks to the Pahrump Valley Times for making space for our briefs and ongoing updates.
We welcomed visitors from surrounding states, as well as all corners of Nevada as our show continues to grow.
We offer many special events during the show, in addition to the beautiful quilt & needlework entries that bring visitors back year after year through word of mouth and targeted advertising.
We welcomed well over 1,000 visitors to the show this year.
Congratulations to all of the award winners and to our Viewer’s Choice winners: favorite quilt “Snowflakes” by Bonnie Powers, favorite needlework “Grumpy Old Man” by Carol Wertsbaugh (visit her one-woman show at the PV Museum on April 26-27), and favorite theme entry “Amanda Plaeweth” by Snookie Beatty.
The beautiful “Walk on the Wild Side” opportunity quilt was won by Pat Henson, a member of the Shadow Mountain Quilters.
Awards and drawings were held at the end of the show on Sunday, as the theme for our 2015 show was announced as Crossroads and the new opportunity quilt was unveiled. We hope you will join us next year for another showcase of beautiful creativity.
