The Mission Historical Museum will accept entries beginning Tuesday, Dec. 2,for its Ninth Annual Mission Quilt Show. Entries will be accepted in six categories: Hand-quilted bed quilts; Machine-quilted bed quilts; Mixed media (quilted items which incorporate non-traditional materials); Wall hangings; Wearable art; and Miscellaneous (decorative or utilitarian items). The show is open to all quilters, both Winter Texans and year-round residents.

Quilts and wall hangings must be ready to hang with a sleeve for display purposes.

20141120 Quilt-ShowEntries are accepted on a first-in/first-accepted basis. Because of limited space, the museum reserves the right to close entries before the deadline. This will allow for the best possible presentation for all entries. To allow for the broadest representation, participants may submit only one item per person. Any quilt entered in this show within the past five years is not eligible for entry this year. The quilts will be judged by a panel of independent judges, with ribbons awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places in each category. Best-of-Show and Viewers’ Choice ribbons will also be awarded.

Entries will be accepted at the museum from Tuesday, Dec. 2, through Saturday, Jan. 3, 2015. Quilts will be accepted Mondays through Fridays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The museum will be closed Dec. 24 and 25, and Jan. 1.

The exhibit opens on Saturday, Jan. 10, and runs through Saturday, Feb. 7. An Awards Reception will take place at 2 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 6. The Mission Historical Museum is located at 900 Doherty in downtown Mission. Admission is free. For more information, call the museum at (956) 580-8646.
