Lake Shelbyville to host quilt show

Lake Shelbyville - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Lake Shelbyville will be hosting a Quilt Show from Tuesday, July 8 to Sunday, July 13 at the Lake Shelbyville Visitor Center during normal hours of operation. As a reminder, the Visitor Center is open Sunday through Thursday from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and on Friday and Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Quilt entry: Quilts must be dropped off at the Lake Shelbyville Visitor Center from June 30 to July 6 during normal hours of operation. Quilts should be in a cloth bag or a pillowcase to protect the quilt from handling damage. Both the quilt and the bag need to be clearly labeled. The quilt must consist of three layers and be quilted (by machine or hand) not tied. A completed entry form must accompany each quilt. When filling out the form, be sure to include a brief description of the quilt, as it will appear in the Lake Shelbyville Quilt Show Program. If you wish to obtain a quilt entry form, call 217-774-3951 ext. 2, email lakeshelbyville@usace.army.mil, or stop by the Lake Shelbyville Visitor Center during normal business hours. Quilt entry forms are also available at the Main Street Quilt Company located in downtown Shelbyville.

Quilt pickup: Quilts will need to be picked up at the Lake Shelbyville Visitor Center from July 14 to July 18 between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. You will need to have your receipt with you for quilt pickup.
