FARM FEST 2021

July 16 & 17, 2021

 

2021 Farm Fest will be held on July 16 & 17. We will again have a single selection for this year’s event. Monique Jacobs will be joining us to lead the group in making her pattern “Link to Link”. Monique will teach class on July 16 from 9 am to 4 pm. Stop in the Shop to see our sample of this quilt. The Saturday session will be an open sew where you can continue working on “Link to Link” or any other project of your choice.

This event will be held at the Holiday Inn, at East State & Bell School Road, Rockford, IL. Anticipating that social distancing will remain an operating business guideline, attendance is limited to 28 participants. Total cost of the 2-day event is $150, which includes the workshop, 3 meals (Friday lunch & dinner plus Saturday lunch), and water, soda, & snacks all day! The Holiday Inn Conference Room will open for Quilter’s set up at 8 am on both days. We will have a Show & Tell following dinner on Friday. On Saturday July 17, the Conference Room will open at 8 am for open sew until 3 pm.

It is our practice for this event that “Repeat Farm Fester” will get first chance at attendance, others will be placed on the waiting list. So, if you attended the 2020 Farm Fest and would like to join us this year, please secure your registration for Farm Fest with a non-refundable deposit of $75 and full payment of $150 is then due by July 1. Come in or call the Shop to register for Farm Fest. No mailing will be done this year.

Remember…you get a 15% discount at Quilter’s General Store on all class-related purchases as well as any purchases the 2 days of Farm Fest! And we are always happy to help you in selecting fabrics for your class! Stop in to see the Shop sample! Kits are available for our version, or build your own from your stash, or we can create a Kit to meet your needs.

We have reserved a block of rooms at the Holiday Inn for Friday night if you wish to spend the night. Price is $109.95 plus tax. You are responsible for your reservation.
