The Dutchess Community College Foundation will host the 18th Biennial Dutchess Heritage Quilt Show Oct. 7 and 8 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on DCC’s main campus in Poughkeepsie.
The show will include vendors, quilt judging, lectures, a fabric postcard challenge, food concessions and workshops. In honor of DCC’s 60th anniversary in 2017, the raffle quilt will incorporate the six-sided hexagon as a primary design feature.
Show admission is $6, $5 for seniors. Visit www.DHQuiltshow.org to register for the judged quilt show or receive a coupon for $1 off admission.
All proceeds will go to support the Dutchess Heritage Quilters Scholarship, which is given annually each May at the DCC Convocation. Two scholarships are awarded each year to a non-traditional student in the Performing, Visual Arts and Communications department.
The first show, a partnership between the Dutchess Heritage Quilters, volunteers from First Dutchess Quilters and Dutchess Community College, was held at the college on June 4 and 5, 1983.
