International Quilt Festival in Long Beach, CA

International Quilt Festival in Long Beach, CA begins on Thursday, July 26th at 5:00pm for Preview Night and continues on throughout the weekend, opening at 10:00am.  Long Beach Convention Center

"Rituals"  An exchange between friends. A handshake. A kiss before bedtime. The artist at work.  A sun salutation. The wave before boarding the school bus. A song, a word, a meditation. A habit, a custom.  The traditional toast at a gathering. A rite of passage. The sacred moments of the ordinary.  Rituals:  What are yours?

Dinner at Eight Artists present a 42 piece collection titled "Rituals." Each piece measures 24" wide by 60" high, vertical format.  The exhibit will debut at the International Quilt Festival in Long Beach July 26-29, 2012 and is sponsored by Moore's Sewing Centers. It will also be shown at the International Quilt Market (Oct 27-29) and Festival (Oct 31-Nov 4) and is sponsored by Havel's Sewing.
