We had 68 quilts participating in the competition based on the theme Imagination. Congratulations to Cheryl Olsson for winning Best of Show for her bed sized Traditional Appliqué Quilt, “Lorraine’s Rhapsody”. Her prize was a Bernina Activa hand painted Limited Edition White Pearl sewing machine.
Ms. Sabine Scheiner Manager Sales, New Markets Bernina AG from Switzerland was the Chief Guesta. There were Lecture Demonstrations / Workshops conducted by renowned teachers Ricky Tims, Sharon Pederson, Bonnie Mc Caffery and Janine Ibbini which were all full. At the Gala dinner, Ricky Tims played the Piano and a Charity Quilt draw was made and an amount of AED 5,000 which was raised that evening was handed over to Dubai Autism Center.
The next International Quilt Show will be in February 2012, with a mini show in February 2011 between the GCC countries which will include some workshops. Information will be posted on this website as it becomes available
Our sincere thanks to everyone who participated in this event, whether you entered a quilt, took a class, or just viewed the exhibit, you each made a difference and contributed to the success of this Show!
