Quilt Show 2012

It is that time again; time to start planning for our biannual Album of Quilts show in June of 2012. I am pleased to announce that we have once again secured Delbrook Community Center as our venue. The dates for the show are Friday June 8th and Saturday June 9th.

Most of the Quilt Show team from 2010 have volunteered to organize the show again. I am truly thankful for their willingness to participate in organizing what is sure to be a wonderful event.

Your 2012 Quilt Show Committee is made up of the following members:

  • Yours Truly – Show Coordinator
  • Rebecca Skiffington – Treasurer
  • Pam Cave – Merchant Mall
  • Krista Hennebury and Marsha McKay – Boutique
  • Jo-Ann Lee – Education
  • Vicky Digby – Volunteers
  • Elaine Fjoser – Registration
  • Andrea Cowie – Quilt Descriptions
  • Trudy Jaskela – Tea Room
  • Carol Piercy – Quilt Show Set-up/Take-down
  • PUBLICITY – ?????????

As you can see, the one position that needs to be filled is Publicity. This is an essential role to ensure a successful show and requires someone who will gather a committee, delegate responsibilities and ensure that the show is well advertised. I have done this job before and can tell you that it is not difficult. By the time the show date arrives the job is all but complete. Please consider taking on this role and being part of our dynamic and fun loving team.

Elaine will take care of registration for 2012 but wants to pass the job on to someone else for 2014. If you are interested and would like to work with a very skilled mentor before taking on the role please contact me.

Lorna and Marilyn have decided to hang up their hats after many years of looking after our boutique. They have done a stellar job and leave large shoes to fill. Our heartfelt thanks go to Lorna and Marilyn for the wonderful job they have done in the past.

There will be further bulletins in regard to registration deadlines etc. in October after we have had a planning meeting. In the meantime start working on those show quilts!
