Our first exhibit, commemorating our tenth anniversary as a guild, was a whopping success! The month long event at the Belmar Arts Council was well attended by the public, we had viewers still coming in as we were taking the show down. Opening Reception was literally standing room only. Refreshments, wine, and entertainment provide by local musician, Matt Trice, was enjoyed by all. I do believe records were broken at the BAC!
There were 56 quilt entries from the JSMQG and 7 entries from the public. Without these two men it would’ve taken so much longer than the two days it did to hang the entire show.
The exhibit, opening reception, and the response from the public went far beyond any expectations I had, it was nothing short of phenomenal.
Some of the quilts that were on display. There is an awful lot of talent amongst us!
Success! A great experience all around. With the influx of new members, this event allowed us to take time to form new friendships and bond as a guild. We are more than just a group of quilters, we are friends! Here’s to us!! The Jersey Shore Modern Quilt Guild. See you in 2025!!
