Every quilt and quiltmaker has a story. But are we documenting those stories along with the quilts we own or create? That’s the mission of the Quilt Alliance — to document, preserve, and share the stories of quilts and quiltmakers. To help fund this mission, the Quilt Alliance is once again hosting Quilters Take Manhattan (QTM), September 23 to 25.
As a sponsor of Quilters Take Manhattan and a big supporter of the Quilt Alliance, Handi Quilter is pleased to be part of this week’s QTM blog hop. In fact, we are currently displaying the latest entries into the Quilt Alliance 2016 quilt challenge: Playing Favorites in the Handi Quilter Gallery.

If you are lucky enough to attend Quilters Take Manhattan in person, you’ll enjoy workshops and lectures, walking tours of the famous NYC garment district, museum tours suitable for those who love all things related to textiles, and MORE. Find out all of the details HERE.
But you can still be part of the fun by purchasing a Moda Home Ticket. For $30 Quilt Alliance members/ $35 nonmembers, Home Ticket holders will receive the QTM Goody Bag, packed with samples and treats from all of the event sponsors, and a chance to win select door prizes. Home Ticket holders will also receive priority access to online video of the Sunday with Sponsors event (sent via email link two weeks after event).
But one lucky Handi Quilter blog visitor will WIN a Moda Home Ticket and QTM Goody Bag. All you need to do to have a chance to win is to leave a comment on this blog post answering this question: How important to you is it that the history of quilts and quiltmakers is documented and preserved? Then just keep your fingers crossed! We’ll randomly select a winner first thing on Monday morning, September 12.The winner will be notified by e-mail.
