Quilt Show - Sew Many Favorites


Annelle Smith, 2015 Quilt Show Chair

Once again, we had a FABULOUS quilt show last weekend! 

Our judges were SO complimentary of the quality of workmanship of our quilts. People commented to me so many times that it was a great show! It is truly amazing to watch that room full of alcoves with just black curtains transformed into such a beautiful display of quilts— YOUR QUILTS! 

Everyone who volunteered to help with the show did an outstanding job! We were so blessed by so many people working together to make it happen. It does take a village to put on a quilt show! It was truly a weekend full of work, fellowship, and just plain fun! You should all be proud of TVQG and its amazing members!

FANTASTIC MAGICAL EXCITING BEAUTIFUL WONDERFUL FRIENDLY FUN BREATHTAKING

That is how I would describe our wonderful Quilt Show. There are no words to describe how much praise we kept hearing from the guests, entrants, vendors and members about our show. Hats off to everyone who volunteered, spent long hours, blood, sweat and tears getting things done. 

THANK YOU ALL FOR A FABULOUS JOB.

 

Faye Nedderman, Volunteer Chair

SPECIAL THANKS TO ALL VOLUNTEERS WHO SERVED AT THE SHOW

From Wednesday, September 16 through Saturday, September 19, TVQG members reported serving 1004 on-site hours at the quilt show. 

33% of our members actively volunteered at the show. These numbers do not reflect the spent countless hours spent in planning, meeting and all the work members did preparing for the show. A special thanks to Annelle Smith and Miriam Hink for their spectacular leadership and to all the committee chairs who cheerfully and selflessly performed their duties.

On-Site Quilt Show Volunteers were recognized at the October meeting.

As an aside, the old saying "you get from an organization what you put in" truly applies at TVQG. On-site quilt show volunteers won 63% of the 2015 quilt show ribbons. When you volunteer, you are in talented company.

SURVEY - Thanks to all who filled out the survey, whether at the October meeting or online. This is YOUR show, and we as a board appreciate all your views, comments and ideas. I assure you, the board is looking at all available options for next year's show. Our quilting environment is evolving, and TVQG needs to change with it if we want to keep our show relevant, dynamic and hopefully profitable. 

Annelle and I are compiling the results and will have a summary ready to present at the November meeting. We will also post the summary here on the website.
