Presented by The Women’s Council of the St. Bernards Development Foundation and sponsored by St. Bernards Senior Services at the St. Bernards Auditorium, 505 East Washington, Jonesboro, Arkansas. No admission will be charged, although donations will be accepted.

Members of area quilt guilds and other quilters from Arkansas, Missouri and Tennessee will display some of their favorite works along with works by fiber artist, spinners of yarn, and knitters. We will also have displays for crochet, smocking, and other fiber arts. To enter any items in the show, you can download the appropriate form from the box on the right.  Please carefully read and comply with all requirements on the forms.

One of the highlights of the show is the Raffle Quilt. For 2014 members of the Loose Threads Quilt Club in Jonesboro will make and donate the quilt. Raffle tickets are $3 each or 4 for $10 and may be purchased at the Foundation office, from members of the Women’s Council, members of the quilt club, and at the door. The drawing for the quilt will be at the show on Sunday afternoon, April 19, at 3:00 p.m. You do not have to be present to win.

For the Gift Gallery, all quilters and sewers are asked to contribute hand-made items for the auction i.e. baby blankets, youth and lap quilts, pillow cases, wall hangings, knitted and crocheted items, handbags, travel bags, etc., and other items related to quilting and fiber arts.

Net proceeds from these two fund-raisers will benefit the St. Bernards Villa Memory Center in Jonesboro.
