Writer's Challenge

Call for Fictional Stories as Fundraiser for TQHF and Salute Women's History Month at the same time!

Calling all writers! Quilt historian Kim Wulfert, creator of Women On Quilts and New Pathways Into Quilt History, is sponsoring an invitation to women to write a creative story about growing up as a female in the US between 1902 and 1942. One of the purposes of the challenge is to help raise funds for The Quilters Hall of Fame’s July 2009 induction of Merikay Waldvogel. The story must take place between 1902 and 1942 because those are the years that Marie Webster lived in Marion, Indiana, in the historic house that has now become the headquarters of The Quilters Hall of Fame, the very house where Marie designed her quilts, wrote the first book on quilt history and eventually conducted her business, Practical Patchwork .

A panel of three independent jurors, all published writers and needle workers in quilting and other creative arts, will select all the final stories which will be bound into an eBook, including photos and drawings that you might want to include with your story. Check it out!
