2016 Quilt Show Circle of Friends
Circle of Friends
Make sure you have April 15 & 16 next year marked on your calendars for our Quilt Show! The Opportunity Quilt is finished and as soon as it is appraised and insured tickets will be available for sale. The quilt is beautiful and many thanks go to everyone who worked on it – especially Joyce Cobb, Joyce Thompson, Jolene Kneemiller and Barbara Doster! Davie Milsted is in charge of ticket sales (which will hopefully begin this month). We encourage each member to purchase/sell $20 worth of tickets (24 tickets) to support the Guild. Of course, once you see the quilt you will want many chances to own it!
The Quilt Show Committee is busy putting the pieces together for the show and you can help now in the following areas: 1. Donate an item or gift basket for the Chinese Auction (Herbie Morin). 2. Donate 2 quilted items to the boutique (Jeanne Chandler). 3. Donate scraps/strips/squares of fabric to the boutique for a special sales area (Jeanne Chandler).
Sandy Hill is busy working on the final designs for the awards ribbons – and her ideas are beautiful! As soon as the finals are decided on, we will probably be requesting help to make them. This year we are adding a new award: Best in Show. It will be selected (by the show judge) from the blue ribbon winners in each category. We will still have the Meticulous Workmanship Award that is for a one-person entry that can only be won once by an individual.
I hope you are working on your quilt entries – April will be here before you know it! Until next month – Happy Quilting!
Linda Kehagias, Show Chair
Quilt show appeal: Chinese Auction:
At 2014 quilt show, Chinese auction had over 40 groups of quilt related items for bidding. We are in need of items for the 2016 show. We are looking for quilting books, patterns, fabric, rulers, thread, scissors, tools and containers to put them in. Diane Carson and Herbie Morin are collecting these items.
