Quilt Show Report

A few reminders this month:

Two months remain for registration—the February and March meetings. Photos are available at those meetings for a small fee. Rules and regulations can be found on the guild website.

Have you renewed your membership? The deadline for renewal is March 31st. In quilt show years there is an increase of $20 in the membership fee. This goes directly to funding the quilt show giving us the funds to get started. For your $20 you receive 4 – $7 tickets, a saving of $8. Give them to friends, family, co-workers etc. If you volunteer at the show you do not need a ticket. If you don’t then you will need one of your tickets for entry.

Have you completed your volunteer forms? The show cannot go on without you. Remember there are volunteer prizes. For every two hour shift you complete one entry goes in the draw.

Boutique items. We need your wonderful creations for our fabulous boutique!

Challenge Quilt. How are your stories coming along?

New instructions for hanging sleeves. If your quilt is larger than 48 inches wide you need to add a 4 inch sleeve. If your quilt is 48 inches or less please use a 2 inch sleeve.

Notes: Dowels will be available on a first come first served basis at the April meeting. We will also be available at that meeting only to assist with cutting dowels to length and adding the screw eyes.

More information on attaching the dowel to your quilt will be included in the April newsletter and repeated in the May newsletter.

Keep working on those beautiful quilts!
