Seeking Quilts for "My Favorite Things" Exhibition!

Flint Handmade is now accepting submissions for the 2012 Flint Festival of Quilts!

(Yes, we realize it is VERY early to be posting this call for submissions, but quilts ALWAYS come in at the last minute and we're trying to avoid that chaos next year!)

We are seeking small scale quilted pieces to display at The Lunch Studio! Quilts can be newly made or well-worn and well-loved!

We will feature an eclectic mix of quilts centered on the theme of My Favorite Things. 

ALL crafters are encouraged to submit small scale quilted pieces showcasing their favorite animals, activities, colors, pattern, ideas and more! 

(With SO MUCH advance notice, you have time to make a SPECIAL quilt just for the 2012 Festival of Quilts!)

A variety of traditional and non-traditional materials in a wide array of textures and patchwork styles will be showcased in quilted form.

If you would like to display a quilt, please email a photo and brief description of the piece(s) to by 5pm on Friday, August 17, 2012.  <---THE EARLIER THE BETTER!!!

Even if you just have an idea for a quilt you would like to make, please email us so that we know you are interested!

This is a FREE FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE showcase. At least one piece per person will be automatically accepted, provided it fits with theme of My Favorite Things.
