Leaving You In Stitches

The Northen New Mexico Quilt Guild presents the 2010 Quilt Fiesta

The Northern New Mexico Quilt Guild was founded nearly 30 years ago, with a mission based on community service, education and, of course, quilting. Its biennial Quilt Fiesta this weekend features the work of guild members, a silent auction and nearly a dozen vendors.

The Northern New Mexico Quilt Guild is a nonprofit organization devoted to service within the community. It provides quilts to various organizations across the area. One of its more recent projects works toward helping the Quilts of Valor group, which provides coverings for wounded US servicemen and veterans.

And the Quilt Fiesta is no exception to the Guild’s devotion to service. Members have worked under the guidance of Ways and Means to create a donation quilt (seen here) for the event. Raffle tickets are available ($2 each or six for $10), and proceeds  go to the Quilt Guild for future projects.


In addition, members’ works will be for sale in the silent auction spanning the two-day event. Featured items include art quilts, wall-hangings, garments and bedding of all sizes created by local quilters in a variety of styles.

The quilt vendors are always very popular at the Quilt Fiesta. Their stalls feature the latest in sewing and embroidery machines alongside fabrics, threads, buttons and more. Vendors also offer hands-on demonstrations of the latest in quilting techniques as well as share some useful tips for your own quilted creations.
