The Record-Courier, based in Gardnerville, NV, has announced that the Carson Valley Quilt Guild will have prize money in the amount of $20,000 for their 2012 judged show. The show is scheduled for June 9-10, 2012 at Carson High School. This highly unusual amount of money is credited to the sponsorship of the Los Angeles firm of First Pacific Advisors LLC, who provides investment management services and has personnel in the Lake Tahoe area.
The competition will be open to quilt artists from the Lake Tahoe area as well as quilt artists from outside that area.
