To answer a few questions:
Did you know that Holy Angels Hall is open at 6:00 for anyone who wants to have more time socializing before the actual meeting?
Only judged quilts are eligible for 1st, 2nd,3rd place ribbons. The certified judge actually names these, not the members. Viewers Choice is voted by anyone who visits the show.
Challenge quilts are judged separately . The Chair finds a judge for this duty
Each vendor is given a ribbon to place on their favorite quilt as is each co-chair. So more ribbons to go around.
Quilter of the Year is an award given to a member who has been very willing to give generously of her time and effort to the running of MVQ. She does not need to be a ribbon winner or renowned quilter. You, as a member can nominate someone -see Bev. This will be announced at the June meeting.
Election of Officers: coming at the May meeting- still need someone to take the helm as President- a rudderless boat just goes around in circles!
