Women Build

Women Build Quilt Contest

We are pleased to announce a new addition to our annual Women Build!

With the current climate, it is unlikely we will be able to host dozens of women on our build site. Instead, we invite you to engage in a new way by participating in our first ever Women Build Quilt Contest. First, second, and third place prizes will be awarded to both adult and junior categories.
All proceeds will go toward building our first home in Hot Springs. Quilters will also have the opportunity to donate their quilts to sell at ReStore, auction at a future event, or to be used by a family in need.
