A Message from the Show Chair...

Our Scholarship Raffle Quilt

Our incredible volunteers continue their tireless efforts to compete the hand quilting of  Jade Garden.

We wish to express deep gratitude and offer a special thanks to all our friends at Dutchess Community College, the Dutchess Community College Foundation and the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library for their support and assistance.  





Scholarship Quilt Raffle Tickets Available Online!



We host a beautiful display of works of art by a population that traditionally finds their path one of service; service to family and to our community. The Quilt Show is a rare opportunity for quilters to display their work, and share their personal passion.

The amazing part of the Dutchess Heritage Quilt Show is that it also allows us to support the educational mission of Dutchess Community College. This biennial show funds two annual scholarships in the art department. Scholarships that have offered hope for a better tomorrow to more than thirty students since the show began in 1982.

Please plan to join us. We are working very hard to offer visual stimulation, vendors to tempt your talents, a fashion show for fun and inspiration, a speaker and workshops to illuminate our art and advance your skills. All this for you while supporting the educational opportunities the DCC offers. It truly is a magical opportunity!
