THE WNCQG is accepting applications from students who reside in either Henderson or Transylvania County and are graduating from high school this year or are already in college or plan to start college in the fall of 2017.

The scholarship consists of an annual amount of $500, renewable for up to four years, for a potential total of $2,000, plus a compact sewing machine.

Applicants must be interested in quilting and/or sewing, although the student’s major field of study may not necessarily be related. Guild members have a broad array of academic and professional backgrounds, but we all share a love of quilting as an avocation which we wish to encourage in succeeding generations.

Completed applications must be postmarked no later than March 15, 2017, and mailed to:

WNCQG Scholarship Committee
4 Swan Circle
Mills River, NC 29759.

The winner will be notified by May 1st and will be invited to the July 2017 meeting of the Guild for presentation of the check and sewing machine.
