Council Quilt Show
June 19 - July 5, 2013
29th Council Quilt Show
It's time to get ready for the 2013 Council Quilt Show.
This will be the 29th year that we have hosted a quilt show here in Council.
This year we will open on WEDNESDAY, June 19th and will close on FRIDAY, July 5th.
As in past years we will be open 10:00 am to 5:00 pm each day.
This year's show will be held again at the Council Elementary School in the mufti-purpose room.
Please drive carefully and slowly when you enter the parking lot. There are activities going on
during the summer and so there will be children out there as part of the parking lot is also the playground.
The Council area has some wonderful and interesting shops to visit.
The local museum, rich in the history of the area, is open five days a week.
The surrounding areas are filled with beautiful mountains to explore,
clear streams for fishing, and lots of wildlife to view.
During the 4th of July weekend, festivities include our annual porcupine race, a parade,
a logging contest, and lots of food and craft vendors.
This years theme is "FOUR SEASONS". All entries must reflect at least one season. You may, of course,
use your entry to depict more than one season.
There are no size requirements this year. Each entry must also include a brief paragraph
describing why the entry fits the theme.
Each entry needs a completed entry form sent in by June 7th. This helps us with our planning.
However, quilts will be accepted as long as we have space available
If you choose to mail your entries in this year they must also reach us by June 14th.
Entry forms and/or quilts should be sent to Council Quilt Show, P.O. Box 238 Council, ID 83612 or
emailed to Council Quilt Show. Entries should be brought to the Elementary School on Saturday June 15th and Sunday June 16th.
Entries will be accepted from 10:00 to 4:00 p.m. each day
.For your convenience you can download our entry form or the entire brochure
We are raffling off a beautiful quilt that was pieced by several members of the Council Quilt Show Committee,
and was quilted by the Council High School Textile class. Tickets are $1.00 each or 6 for $5.00.
See a picture of the quilt here.
We are hosting a Challenge Block contest again this year. Entries should reflect our theme of "FOUR SEASONS".
Packets are available at the Council Valley Free Library or we can mail you one.
Entries are voted on by Viewers Choice. We will be continuing our community awards.
For a $25.00 fee you can come in the night before the show opens and choose your favorite quilt.
The person who entered the quilt gets $20.00 prize money and
the quilt is marked with your business or groups name. If you would like to participate, please email us: firstname.lastname@example.org
