13th annual Mid-Ohio Valley Heritage “Sew American Pride” Quilt Show at Blennerhassett Museum March 11-19, 2017;
Entries accepted March 3 and 4

PARKERSBURG, W.Va. – The 13th annual Mid-Ohio Valley Heritage Quilt Show is March 11-19, 2017, at the Blennerhassett Museum of Regional History in Parkersburg. Along with the standard categories, this year’s themed category is “Sew American Pride.”

“The theme allows quilters to show, through their work, what being an American means to them,” said Pam Salisbury, event coordinator. The other standard quilt categories are bed, crib, wall, duet, group, antique, and mixed. Exhibitors may show one entry per category.

The museum is accepting quilts or wall hangings for the show March 3 and 4 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Exhibitors may pre-register quilts by calling the park office at 304-420-4800 for guidelines and registration forms. The quilt show is sponsored by The Friends of Blennerhassett.

Awards are given in each category along with “Best of Show” (hand-quilted); “Best of Show” (machine quilted); “Superintendent’s Choice; and “Best Use of Themed” and “Best of Show”. Quilt show attendees may vote for the “People’s Choice Award,” which will be announced March 19.

The exhibit opens March 11 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Blennerhassett Museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m.  Admission to the museum is $4 for adults and $2 for children 3-12. The museum is located on the corner of 2nd and Juliana Streets in downtown Parkersburg.
