23rd Annual Quilt Gala
The Horry County Museum Quilt Gala has become a fixture on the Grand Strand. Started in 1994, the first Gala was held on the lawn of the Horry County Courthouse. Over the years the Gala has continued to grow and is now held at the Ocean Lakes Family Campground Recreation Center in Myrtle Beach. At the Gala many different types of quilts are displayed which represent a variety of techniques and skill levels. Categories include wearables, large quilts, medium quilts, small quilts, and a challenge. The wearables are handmade garments sewn using a variety of quilting techniques. The challenge category changes each year and is based on preset restrictions. The 2017 challenge theme is “Beatlemania”. Beatlemania all started on February 7, 1964 when the Fab 4 crossed the pond and arrived in the USA becoming one of the most incredible music sensations of the past 50 years. Quilters in this category must choose one of their iconic songs or album titles for their inspiration and create a wall hanging which depicts that title. Winners of each category will be voted on by the public and will receive a ribbon. The blue ribbon winners from each category are displayed in the Horry County Museum during the month of March. In addition to displaying quilts, the Gala also hosts demonstrators, speakers, and a featured quilter. Along with the beautiful quilts, local and regional vendors will be on hand to support, consult, and aid the quilter with various quilting merchandise. The Museum is grateful to have the support of local quilt guilds for many years to aid in the management, set-up, and break down of the Gala. The 23rd annual Quilt Gala will be held Friday February 24th from 10 am–4 pm and Saturday February 25th from 10am-4pm. Admission is $5.00 per person; children 12 and under are free.
