We are moving along with the Quilt Show. Postcard flyers are out advertising the show. We have gotten Smithfield Barn to provide us with the accessories for the show floor, and they can be purchased if you would like. They are antique quilt related items, and will enhance the overall appearance of the show.
We will be collecting mini-quilts and boutique items whenever you have them. Also, we will be looking for door prize items after the first of the year. We will wait a little while before we ask again for donations from manufacturers and quilt shop owners who were so generous for our auction.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me. If you have a specific job that you would like to take on, please let me know. There is a lot of excitement being generated, and I welcome any help you want to give. Thanks.
Things are moving along well. We are searching for vendors and hope to have six at the show. Roni Connor has agreed to chair a boutique/handcraft booth. She will give more information about that at the July meeting. We have begun work on Advertising and plan to have flyers at the Hershey show in July.
I am presently working on getting people to head up special areas of the show. We will be having a start-up meeting shortly. Things are moving along according to our timeline, and I thank all the people who have volunteered to help. More information will be given at the June guild meeting as our plans get more specific.
February 2017 Update
We are in the search process for a venue for the Quilt Show. We are looking for a place in West Chester if possible. After that is found, we will begin setting up the committees so we don’t interfere in the work for the May auction. Please think about joining a committee. We will need people to work on the Boutique, Programs, setting up and taking down, vendors, raffle baskets and chairpersons for these committees. I will have specific sign up sheets as we get further along in the process. Please think about helping out. It will be a chance to have some fun and meet new people and showcase our talents.
There are a lot of people happily looking forward to having a Calico Cutters Quilt Show. Now that we know the guild would support a show, we will begin the process. First of all we have to find a venue. Thoughts are to have it in the spring of 2018. If you know of a place that you think would work for our show, please let us know and we will investigate it. Also, if you are interested in helping with the hunt for the venue let me know. We will keep you updated on our progress.
It has been twenty years since Calico Cutters has held a quilt show and we have grown in so many ways. We have so many talented members as is shown in our quilt challenges. We have a lot to offer to the quilting community, so let’s give them something to remember. It is a long process to get a show together, but once we get our place, we can go forward with planning the show itself. We will need lots of help with food, raffles, boutique, hanging and displaying quilts, vendors, door prizes, etc. You know what it takes to make a fun show, and that is our goal. We hope to display lots of our wonderful quilts so tune up your machines and plan a special entry.
Looking forward to a fun time and a chance to meet lots of new people. Thanks in advance for any help you can give.
