Quilt Show News: 3 Weeks to Go!

Now is the time to get those bookmarks to your friends and family. We know that most people come to the show because they have been directly invited, so start reminding everyone that the show is the first Friday and Saturday in October at the Libertyville Sports Complex (near the intersection of Routes 137 and 45).

Silent Auction

Remember to keep silent auction items coming—you can contribute up to the dates of the show!

Let’s Do Lunch at the Quilt Show!

We’d love to have you participate in the Hospitality lunch breaks! At Tuesday’s guild meeting, lists for food opportunities (such as a crock pot of hot dogs, crackers & cheese, or some brownies) will be available for you to offer. If you want to sign up but can’t be at the meeting, call Sylvia Bath. Anything you can bring for Friday or Saturday will be greatly appreciated. See you there!

Hanging Day is Thursday, October 1

Please mark your calendars for October 1. Join us at 8:30 am (or as early as 7 am) and expect to work through early afternoon. We will be using carts and wagons to move equipment and quilts efficiently and safely, and we will have jobs for all physical abilities. It's a lot of fun to see our show come to life, so please join us if you can.

All guild members are invited to learn how to hang quilts with our new black drapes on Sunday, September 27, 2-4 p.m. We will meet at Nancy Smith's house (check the roster for the address). Please carpool if you can; parking is limited.
