Mission Historical Museum is accepting entries for the Mission Quilt Show now until Jan. 5. The time for accepting quilts has been extended this year so Winter Texans arriving after the holidays will be able to enter their quilted items in the show.
The show will be held Jan. 12 through Feb. 9 at the Mission Historical Museum annex located at 200 E. Tom Landry St.
Categories for this year’s show include hand-quilted bed quilts, machine-quilted bed quilts, mixed media, wall hangings, wearable art and miscellaneous items.
This year a special feature has been added to the show. Chairwoman Annette Sweet has arranged for quilting teachers to teach special quilting techniques. These demonstrations of techniques will be held Jan. 17, Jan. 24, and Feb. 7 at 1 p.m.
The reception for the awards for the quilts will be held Friday, Feb. 1. The awards presentations will also include a “Turning of the Quilts” program to be led by Sweet.
The last day of the show is Saturday, Feb. 9 and the day to pick up the quilts is Feb. 12.
Those who are not submitting quilts for the show will want to make plans to come out and see the show, take one of the quilting classes to be offered and vote for their favorite quilt. Viewer’s choice voting ends Jan. 30.
Mission Historical Museum is open Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. It is closed Sunday and Monday. Admission is free. For information call (956) 580-8646.
