About the Show
The Allegany Arts Council is pleased to announce the 2nd Schoolhouse Quilt Competition & Exhibition will take place June 21-23, 2024, at the Allegany County Fairgrounds!
In 2022, we partnered with local guild, Schoolhouse Quilters, to expand their more than 3o-year running show from a members exhibition to a regional, even national program. With nearly 200 entries in our inaugural year, we've decided to do it again, increasing opportunities for vendors, giving more than $5000 in prize money, and bringing recognized names to teach and lecture.
We invite quilters from all areas of the country to submit their very best and share this beautiful and traditional art form with others.
Our call will be open in early 2024.
