Ocean Waves Quilt Guild 2023 Quilt Show, “Fabric of Life”
April 13 - April 15
The Ocean Waves Quilt Guild’s 2023 Quilt Show, “Fabric of Life,” will be held April 13-15, 2023 at Sussex Academy, 21150 Airport Road, Georgetown, DE. Over 300 judged and non-judged quilts made by Guild members and friends of the Guild will be exhibited along with Quilts of Valor. Quilts that have been entered for judging will be judged by nationally certified judges Sandra Dorrbecker and Beth Pauley. The biennial Show is the Guild’s primary fundraiser and helps the Guild to continue its mission of education and charitable community service.
The Show’s featured artist, Edyta Sitar, is an internationally recognized and prominent quilter, author and teacher from Oxnard, CA. As the founder and owner of her company, Laundry Basket Quilts, she is proud to carry on her family tradition that fabrics and threads have seamlessly stitched together through the generations. The combination of inspiration, a love for fabric, a keen eye for color, and her family teachings blended into the recipe for a talent in constructing amazing quilts, creating innovative quilting patterns, designing beautiful traditional and batik fabrics for Moda and now for Andover, and designing stunning thread for Aurifil. She has published numerous books, been featured in many magazines, and her quilts have been honored in displays around the world.
The Show will feature an exhibit of Edyta’s quilts and she will offer her original quilting patterns and fabrics for sale at the Vendors’ Mart. Edyta will give a lecture and trunk show, included in the price of quilt show admission, on Friday, April 14 at 5:30 pm.
