Siouxland Samplers Quilt Show-2013

     "Catch The Bug" was the theme for this years show in Sioux City, Iowa. The Siouxland Samplers Quilt show is always a nice show and I don't like to miss it. I really think it is one of the best shows in my area. I don't belong to their guild but I wish I was closer and I would join but it is just too far to drive to be convenient..but I have made a slideshow so grab a cup of coffee and enjoy..

This guild always has the neatest ribbons for the winners. They are handmade, different designs for each show and very attractive. This year each ribbon had a little Lady Bug button and a larger Lady Bug pin. Each ribbon had both Lady Bugs on them but when the owner of a winning quilt came, she/he would take the larger pin off and pin it to their shirt. Sometimes you would see someone with 2 or 3 large bugs on her shoulder..that way you would know she/he was a winner. It is just a nice concept and a way to recognize the quilters. See the pictures below to see what I'm talking about.
Do you like these slideshows? I know this one is especially big but it was a big show!! What was your favorite quilt? What about those ribbons? Aren't they neat?? I'll be waiting to hear from you so let me know that you stopped by...Sew until next time, I hope you have a Stitches kind of day...............


  1. I like the idea of the quilter getting recognition for being a winner! that is a great idea. I could tell when you loved the quilting as you took extra pictures. The lighting must've been good as the quiltiing shows up well. Thanks for the show. Is it always this time of year? My friends and I always go to DM...didn't know there was another show within easy day driving distance. Are there vendors too?

  2. Thanks for taking time to leave a comment. Yes, this show is always this time of year, only every other year. It's always a good show, I think. And yes, they do have vendors, not a lot but more than Cottonwood had this year. I don't think you would be disappointed if you drove up to S.C. In 2015.
