Entries sought for 'Signs of Spring' quilt show in January
The Mattoon Arts Council is seeking quilt entries for the 2016 quilt show, “Signs of Spring.” Quilts, wall hangings, table runners, and garments are eligible for exhibition. This is not a juried quilt show and all ages of quilters are accepted. The MAC wishes to showcase the talents of area artists and quilters alike.

MAC's Little Library at the Depot
Have you ever been waiting somewhere and really wish you had a book to help pass the time? We are collecting books for our "Little Library" for Amtrak passengers who may have this same issue! The Arts Council office is located in the Mattoon Train Depot, just behind the elevator. Bring your books, any genre, and we will make sure they are put to good use. Can't make it to the Arts Council office before 5:00pm and have books to donate? No problem! Just stack them by the office door and we will pick them up the next morning. Amtrak passengers and the council appreciate your generosity!
