Preview Party

Each year, a Preview Party is held the night before the show opens.  A cash bar and cheese are available beginning at 6:00 p.m. in the Food Court area of the show.  Doors to the show are open until 9 p.m. for viewing the quilts. We also have a special display just for the Preview Party. Past displays have featured the quilt collections of Elaine Stemetzki, Mary Rhopa LaCiera, Pat Styring, Pat Dowling and many others.

This year's Party will feature non-traditional art quilts by local artist Dana Chapman Tupa. You can previvew her work here.

Preview Party tickets are $10 prepaid or $12 at the door.
