Special Exhibits
Don’t forget the wonderful special exhibits that will be on display in the North Hall. The 35 quilts from the Pilgrim/Roy Collection promise to be inspiring, focusing on the unique “twists” that the individual quilt makers made to traditional patterns. Two of our youngest Guild Retreat veterans will have a special exhibits of their Dowry Quilts – 13 quilts made before their weddings. Lastly, Shirley Fowlkes Stevenson, a guild member since 1980, is our “featured member” for 2016. She will have 36 items including five of her garment designs on display, as well as her breathtaking quilt artistry.
23rd Annual Miniature Quilt Auction
On Saturday afternoon, March 12th, at around 1:30 PM, you will begin hearing the distinctive sounds of an auctioneer coming from the main entrance to the show. This marks the start of the annual “live” Miniature Quilt Auction.
The Ebby House, a part of Juliette Fowler Communities, will be the 2016 beneficiary. This year, the Pride of Dallas winner will be announced at the beginning of the mini-quilt auction. The judges this year will be a group of the residents at Ebby House.
In response to a growing need, Juliette Fowler Communities opened The Ebby House in May, 2014, to provide transitional housing and supportive programs for young women ages 18-24, who have aged out of the Texas foster care system. The Ebby House is named for Dallas real estate icon, Ebby Halliday
