Quilt Show 2019
Well folks our show is a little over two months away and it is a “really big show” that takes all of us working together to make it the successful. It is beautiful and colorful with lots to keep a person intrigued.
Again, I am encouraging members to display a quilt, take a leap to have it judged, enter a challenge quilt (Rose of Sharon) and a completed class project from the last two years for our special exhibit. The entry form is on our website and are due Layne Rando by July 31st. You can contact Layne with any questions you may have. Her info is on the form, quilt show committee list and the membership list.
Also, if you would like to place an ad or know of someone who would like to place an ad in our booklet please contact Jamie Ruh. Her info is on the quilt show committee list and the membership list. The advertising form can be found here.
I have thoroughly enjoyed chairing the quilt show so when the 2018 show came to a close I started thinking ahead to next year. Firstly a big thank you to the following members who have said they will return to help me in 2019: Wenonah Schwedler, Linda Lydecker, Heather Shields, Ann Hockmeyer, Pat Lucey, Maggie Judd, Bev Knapp, Marianne Karp, Elaine Rando, Carrie Zizza, Stacey Caruso, Patti Gregg, Cathy Harnish, Jane Hamel, Angie Cyr, Gail Wozniak, Betty Hastings and Judy Naylor. Also, thank you to Diane Kelley and Pat McBride who have volunteered though not been given an assignment yet. Key positions that still need filling are vendors and special exhibit.

Our Ruby Celebration in 2020 has a lot members thinking ahead. While I was on retreat Barbara Ward and Roseann Ricketson volunteered to take on the Ruby Challenge. They are excited and have some wonderful ideas. I would also like to remind members that all show quilts except mini’s will be required to have sleeves. Thank you all.
