Nancy Zieman 4-H Virtual Community Quilt
Join the Fun! Entries due by Sept 1, 2020
All youth and adult quilters, sewists and fiber artists are invited to contribute to a virtual community quilt in celebration of the upcoming premiere of the PBS Wisconsin documentary, Nancy Zieman: Extraordinary Grace.
Nancy’s career in sewing and fiber arts was inspired by her youth participation in Wisconsin 4-H. Nancy credited 4-H for many life skills including public speaking, problem solving, self-confidence, leadership and communication skills.
Please consider uploading an image of a 6-1/2-inch fiber art square or quilt block, along with a statement detailing how Nancy Zieman and/or 4-H directed your fiber arts journey or career path.
The Great Wisconsin Quilt Show virtual community quilt will be shared as part of the virtual experience, Sept. 10-12. You’ll also be able to scroll through and read stories from participants across the country whose lives have been impacted by Nancy Zieman and/or 4-H.
Quilt to Give – From Home
August 24-28, 2020
Let’s use our skills to help others! Join us on social media to create bed-sized quilts to benefit Domestic Abuse Intervention Services (DAIS) and Enchanted Makeovers.
COVID-19 restrictions have triggered common factors associated with domestic violence. As a result, there has been a surge in domestic violence and abuse nationwide. With these sobering facts in mind, we want to give back to those in need.
We will share project steps and guidance from Nancy Zieman Productions via social media daily and invite you to share photos of you working on your quilts. Once finished, mail your quilts or quilt tops to Nancy Zieman Productions for distribution to charity.
Viewer’s Choice Award
Vote for your Favorite! September 10-11, 2020
Using a special 3-D camera, our team set up and captured video and photos of this year’s quilt exhibits. Enjoy an immersive and interactive walk through of the exhibits with access to high resolution images, detailed information about each quilt, and video interviews with select quilters who share the stories behind their quilts. While it’s not necessary to have virtual reality (VR) goggles, they would heighten the experience.
View the virtual quilt exhibits online and then cast your vote online for your favorite quilt. The Viewers’ Choice award is sponsored by SewBatik.
