QUILT WALK 2023
On Canada Day 2023, the Clayton McLain Memorial Museum will participate in Cut Knife’s town-wide July 1 celebrations. At Tomahawk Park, the CMMM will host a Heritage Village Open House along with additional activities, one of which will be a Quilt Walk.
ABOUT: The Quilt Walk will take place along the shaded walking path that connects the Duvall House to the World’s Largest Tomahawk. Quilts will be arranged on clotheslines between the mature trees that line the path. In addition to the outdoor display area, some interior space will be available for smaller items.
When: Saturday, July 1 from 1 – 5pm.
Where: Clayton McLain Memorial Museum, Tomahawk Park, Cut Knife.
Additional: Advance drop-off and post-event pick-up protocols will be in place.
VISION: To have a wide variety of textile crafts on display from a diversity of sources, of cultural traditions, and historical roots.
SUBMISSIONS: Quilters, textile artists of all ages and skill levels, and owners of crafts that fall within these categories, are invited to submit their pieces. The exact number of submissions per individual will depend upon the number of submitting parties. Each piece will need to be accompanied by its story i.e. name of creator, date of item, etc. Of particular interest will be the reason for the item’s creation, and/or any symbolism, historical details, or cultural meanings related to the item.
The CMMM is looking for Expressions of Interest from individuals who would like to participate in the Museum’s Canada Day Quilt Walk. Email email@example.com with your name, contact info, and a brief description of the item(s), whether quilts, embroidery, weavings, etc. The event will only go forward if there will be enough submissions for an exhibit.
DEADLINE TO SUBMIT AN EXPRESSION OF INTEREST IS SATURDAY, JUNE 10.
Note: Although all efforts will be made to monitor the artwork at all times, and to protect it from damage due to weather or other sources, artwork will be submitted at the owner’s risk.
