A big thank you to Marilyn Hardy and Jackie Ruffing for such an interesting lecture on this year’s raffle quilt. It is amazing how many decisions each of them had to make to produce this spectacular quilt.
Cathy Woodson with the Nominating Committee did a presentation on our need for nominees and a number of volunteers came forward to fill positions. Thank you to all our volunteers. The 2nd VP position is generally filled by two members. This is the Programs position. This position requires a lot of work and is really too much for one person. We have one volunteer to help do this job, but we need at least one more. Please get in touch with the Nominations Committee members if you are willing to help with Programs.
The Quilt Show Task Force held their first meeting on Wednesday after the Board Meeting. Several items were discussed. Our first priority will be to find a location that is affordable and has enough space to support most of what we need. Once the location is determined, we will look at what adjustments will need to be made to the show for the chosen location. Our previous quilt show chairs had looked at many locations and eliminated most of them for lack of space or for being too expensive. We will be looking at the best options from the information that they have gathered plus a few more spaces that members of the task force knew of. No matter where we choose, we will be looking at less space than we have in Harvey Hall so we will be looking at how to save layout space and maybe the use of tents for some areas. We also have to look at cost. Many places we have looked at cost more than we are used to spending for rent space. We are looking at trimming the time it takes for setting up the show. The Task Force will meet again on Wednesday, June 23rd at the First Christian Church. Hopefully we will have more information to share with the Guild at our next meeting.
