Winds of Change Quilt Show

The 2015 Quilt Show is now over.  What an amazing weekend it was in Aberdeen. The display of over 250 quilts was breathtaking and such a wide range of quilts and quilting techniques. The show was divided into two parts - quilters who displayed with the state guild for an opportunity to be judged if they wished and the Aberdeen part where quilts were divided into four groups - traditional, modern, art and theme quilts. Quilts came from across South Dakota, North Dakota, and Minnesota. The judges spent a long afternoon critiquing the quilts and were kind enough to also chose a Best of Show for the State and a Best of Show for the Aberdeen section.  Attendees had an opportunity to vote on the SDQG Challenge quilts and People Choice Awards. The presenters entertained the large groups of appreciative quilters with their remarkable stories and information on quilts and quilting. Vendors displayed their remarkable products and presented demonstrations throughout the weekend. The Aberdeen Lioness Club ran the concessions so viewers could rest and eat before continuing on.

Many volunteers worked to make the Winds of Change Quilt Show a success. Quilt guild members from the South Dakota Quilt Guild, Aberdeen Area Quilt Guild, Candlelight Guild and the Aberdeen Area Modern Quilt Guild came together to create a wonderful show for the public to view.  Close to 400 people walked through the show in the two days.  A simple  thank you to the volunteers seems inadequate, but that was what was heard throughout the weekend as people walked through.  They kept saying "thank you for bring this incredible quilt show to Aberdeen for us to enjoy."
