Our annual quilt show is an opportunity for members to exhibit their quilts.                                                        It is a judged event, giving those entering an opportunity to receive feedback on the quality of their work.    The judge's comments are confidential, which makes this  a positive learning experience.

What is she looking for?                                                               All members are encouraged to participate by entering quilts and working during the show.                            In addition, we have many "extras" to offer.  For a sampling, see below                                                         QUILT SHOW COMMITTEE click here                        Short History of the Annual Naples Guild Quilt Show
