Win A Beautiful WKU Quilt

Preserving the Past, Sustaining the Future 

Kentucky Museum

Oct. 21-Dec.10, 2011

The WKU Family and Consumer Sciences Alumni Association will celebrate the 100-year history of the Family and Consumer Sciences Department with a juried quilt show.  All quilters and quilt collectors are invited to participate by entering antique and older traditional quilts, as well as contemporary, modern, futuristic quilts, and quilted items.  Historic vignettes will highlight important events during the 1911-2011 history.  The show will feature demonstrations and lectures each week of the exhibition. 

As part of the celebration, the FACS Alumni Association is raffling a WKU quilt (see picture). The quilt was made from an exclusive copyrighted kit and is valued at $700-$800. The four WKU logos are embroidered. The opportunity to win this quilt is available to each of you by contacting Wilma Rogers (270-842-8249 or wiljoyce@aol.com ). It is also being shown at various alumni and other events between now and homecoming, as well as at football games, including homecoming. The drawing will be held at the end of homecoming and the winner will be notified by phone. Tickets are $3 each or 4 for $10. Proceeds will benefit FACS scholarships/awards.
