                                                            Fenimore Quilt Club 2012 Show


The Cooperstown Art Association proudly presents the 22nd Annual Fenimore Quilt Club Show which opens Saturday, February 11 and runs through Sunday, February 26. Within easy walking distance of all the festivities of Cooperstown's Winter Carnival this is a show not to be missed!  This highly anticipated exhibit will showcase a diverse array of over one hundred quilts and other quilted items in both traditional and contemporary designs.  This year’s collection will exhibit quilts created by many talented men and women ranging from bed quilts, lap quilts, wall hangings, pillows and more!  Both old and new quilts will be featured and several will be for sale.   

Members of the Fenimore Quilt Club will be present each day to demonstrate quilting techniques and to answer any questions about their craft you might have.  This year’s show will also feature a queen size raffle quilt made by all the members of the Fenimore Quilt Club!  This star pattern quilt is machine-pieced and hand quilted.  This handsome bed quilt features warm hues and will be on display for the duration of the show and the winning raffle ticket will be drawn Sunday, February 26.  Tickets will be sold for $1 each or 6 for $5 with the proceeds benefiting the Fenimore Quilt Club. 

In addition to the raffle quilt the Fenimore Quilt Club has been busy sorting donated fabric scraps, pieces, yardage, discontinued quilt books and magazines which will be available for sale throughout the show while supplies last.  All proceeds from the fabric sales benefit the local Cooperstown Food Bank.

Please note that the gallery will be open daily for the duration of the Quilt Show.  Gallery Hours:  Open Daily 11-4; Sunday 1-4.  The CAA is located in the Village Library Building 22 Main Street diagonally across the street from the National Baseball Hall of Fame.  For more information please contact the CAA at (607) 547-9777 or Jean Lyon at (607) 547- 2709.  Visit us on the web at
