Thimbleweed Quilters is a program of the City of Rio Rancho Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department. Thimbleweed Quilters meet the first and third Thursday of each month from 9:30 am to 2:00 pm at Sabana Grande Recreation Center in Rio Rancho.
When: May 18 – 10:00 am to 6:00 pm, May 19 – 9:00 am to 5:00 pm Where: Albuquerque Convention Center 401, 2nd Street NW Why: to publicize NMQA and the evolution of quilting through the years, to enjoy the talents of fellow quilters and to SHOP!
This is a non-judged show and not limited to NMQA members, so tell your friends with wonderful quilts that they are welcome and we’d like to show their quilts. There will be a silent auction, door prizes, great quilts, including a vintage quilt display and forty traveling quilts from the 2011 Hoffman Challenge. And of course, wonderful vendors! Friday at 12:00 noon we will have a “flash mob” on Second Street in front of the Convention Center. Bring a small quilt to wave during this event and join in the fun!
