Raffle Quilt Goes to Connections

Posted on

We still need people to work with our raffle quilt at the Connections Festival on November 9, 10, and 11.

Here’s what we need:

Thursday, November 9
8:00-10:00 at the table (Arrival can be at any time from 8:00 on. These people will set up the quilt any time from 8:00 on)
9:00-12:00 (a one hour stint white gloving within this time slot)
4:00 – 5:00 (Then take down the quilt leaving the rack up for the next day. Bag the quilt and bring it to the Vintage & Vogue booth in the vendor room. Our quilt will be put under their table for the night. Please leave the cart and cash box under our table and bring home the money to be picked up later.)

Friday, November 10 –
9:00-10:00 at the table (You can set up our quilt can be anytime from 8:00 on. You will retrieve our quilt from the Vintage & Vogue booth. You will be provided with start-up money before the 10th.)
9:00-12:00 (see same time slot above)
4:00 – 5:00 (see time slot above)

Saturday, November 11 –
9:00-10:00 (See same time slot for November 10th)
9:00-12:00 (we need people for the raffle table and someone to do a one hour stint white gloving)
4:00 – 5:00 (and take down the quilt and pack everything up and bring it home)

Part of our problem is that some of our members will be at the retreat at Kennebunk. There is a concern having only one person in a time slot. If that person is unable to show at the last minute, the table will be unattended. Hope you are able to step for our guild.

Here’s a list of the people who have made a commitment.

Thursday – November 9
10:00-12:00 – Carol Sullivan
12:00-2:00 – Mary Stobbs  Ann Stobbs
2:00-4:00 – Jamie Ruh

Friday – November 10
10:00-12:00 – Liz Swan Mary Wilkes
12:00-2:00 – Carol Robinson
2:00-4:00 – Cyndi Fergusen

Saturday – November 11
10:00-12:00 –
12:00-2:00 – Ronni Longwell
2:00-4:00 – Gail Forthoffer
4:00-5:00 – Gail Forthoffer

Nancy Dempsey is on a list to take a day where needed.

October Appliqué orkshop

Saturday’s appliqué workshop can also be done in cotton. It doesn’t have to be silk. The kits are all silk but Christine will let everyone know what they need tomorrow if they want to do cotton appliqué. Also, they will need an 18-inch background piece for the pillow and no need to bring any silk threads as she will have them.  Patterns will also be available.
