In just a few weeks the 2015 show is upon us.
I would like to take this time to thank the show committee for their expertise & commitment, who worked tirelessly for the past 2 years planning every detail. Also, I would like to thank the members who stepped up to the plate & volunteered to work with the committee chairs. Without this effort the show could not happen.
I would also like to thank all those who have entered a quilt into the show. For many of us, patting ourselves on the back is difficult, but now is the time to do so. We are a creative, artistic group and this is our time to show our talent to all who come to view our work.
On March 28 and 29th bring your friends and family and enjoy the quilts adorning the hall. Support the vendors & take advantage of their show specials and visit the boutique for one-of-a kind items.
Vote for your favorite quilt.
Above all, Have Fun.

IMPORTANT DETAILS FOR JUDGING DAY AND SET-UP DAY
We just want to remind everyone of some important details for the upcoming judging day on Saturday, March 14th AND for set-up day on Friday, March 27th at FIT.
On Saturday, March 14th at the Guild Meeting, please remember that:
• Each quilt should have a label with the name, date and maker.
• Each quilt should be enclosed in a pillowcase with the title of the quilt, the quilters name, phone number and/or email address on the pillowcase. This is for both the judging day and also when you bring the quilt in for the show.
If you are bringing your quilt in for judging at the March meeting, please be at the church with your quilts by 8:30AM. If you cannot be there by 8:30AM, please arrange with a friend to have them bring in your quilt.
Please note that the President's Challenge quilts WILL NOT BE JUDGED at the March meeting. Those will be judged at the show - so you don't need to bring them on the 14th BUT you do need to bring them on March 27th.
On Friday, March 27th - Show Set-up Day Please bring your quilt to FIT for hanging at the show the hours of 9A and 10AM. Please make sure that you have the following:
• Each quilt you are submitting in its own pillowcase with the title of the quilt, the quilter's name, phone and/or email address on the quilt label AND the pillowcase. This includes the President's Challenge.
• Each quilt you are submitting should have a four inch sleeve sewn on the back of the quilt.
