I was reading my newest issue of Early American Life magazine and saw a notification for a virtual quilt show at a New England museum. I thought what a great idea. After all, most quilters are missing the privilege of going to quilt shows thanks to COVID. So, fellow quilters, here is a small listing of virtual quilt shows to see for your enjoyment.
Shelburne Museum display “Pattern and Purpose”
National AIDS Memorial “Remembering Native Lives Lost to AIDS”
Quilters Anonymous 2021 Virtual Quilt Show
AQS Paducah 2018
Texas Quilt Museum “History in the Making”
Chris Lynn Kirsch “Virtual Scrap Quilt Show 2020”
Billings, MT quilt show https.indianaquilter40.com/memories-of-a-quilt-show-in-billings-mt/
It certainly does feel like it has been much more time than a year since this whole COVID thing has stopped people from traveling and doing activities they are used to. Like you, I personally miss quilt shows and know plenty of other quilters who feel the same.
Hopefully you will take a few minutes to “visit” some of the virtual quilt shows above and enjoy. I sure hope the new normal is not that all quilt shows will become virtual. But for now this is a way to still enjoy being able to see and be inspired by other quilters beautiful quilts.
I hope you enjoyed this small listing of virtual quilt shows to see for your enjoyment. Looking for these was fun and gave me an excuse to spend time visiting virtual quilt shows of many types.
Life is busy, and this was a nice way to slow down and just enjoy going to a quilt show.
