Fashion Returned to PNQE!
The twenty-fourth annual Pennsylvania National Quilt Extravaganza held September 14-17, 2017 was more “Fashionable” than ever. Show-goers were thrilled to learn that fashion had returned to PNQE for 2017 in the form of two fashion shows!
Vickie Clontz, vendor, instructor & fashion show moderator presented a show of her own fashion creations, Celebrating Art & Fashion on PNQE’s opening day. Pictured below is one of Vickie’s beautiful and colorful creations just before our model walked the PNQE Runway:

All garments in the Challenge included the SewBatik challenge fabric, Paisley Esprit – Midnight Sand Storm.
