• 1st Place in voting, $75 gift certificate.
• 2nd Place in voting, $50 gift certificate.
• 3rd Place in voting, $25 gift certificate
• One (1) $25 gift certificate will be by random drawing from the pool of voters.
You may turn quilt tops in the Fabric Department at any time during June. You may submit as many quilts and quilt tops as you would like. All entries MUST be submitted no later than 5:00 pm Fri, June 30, 2017. Please see the PDF pamphlet for the specifications on the quilts.
After the contest is over, Ben Franklin is pairing up with American Hero Quilts, right here in Washington State, to send as many quilts as possible to Madigan Army Medical Hospital at Fort Lewis and to their new long-term care facility, the Warrior Transition Center. They have distributed over 23,000 quilts! You can visit their website for more information: www.americanheroquilts.com

Seahawks Fabric - EXCLUSIVE to quilt stores
We have new Seahawks cotton fabric! This one is super special though for a couple of reasons. This is one that Carrie Booker, our fabric manager, helped design! So if you don't like it, pretend you do. :) It is only available to quilt shops, it won't be sold at big box stores. So, if you want to get an exclusive fabric for your craft shows or just something that no one else will have for a little while, come and grab it!
