TQG 2016 QUILT SHOW – “QUILTERS ROCK THE BEACH”
I wish to start off by letting everyone know that your 2016 Quilt Show Committee is hard at work, although we got a late start in organizing the committee and developing our plans for the quilt show. Once we had our first committee meeting in June 2015, each committee member quickly volunteered and took on the responsibilities of the variety of job positions necessary to present a successful local quilt show.
First and foremost was to find a venue to hold the quilt show and as the Quilt Show Chair I took that task on with earnest and veracity. I decided to share this experience as a tool to enlighten everyone. We had outgrown the venue of the Khedive Temple in Chesapeake, which was 9,100 sq. ft. of space, and wanted to expand to 11,000 sq. ft. or more. We also wanted to have the venue in Virginia Beach area in our efforts to attach ourselves to the tourist industry. We would need a venue for 3 days rental, 1 day for set-up and 2 days for the show to be open to the public with breakdown after the close of the quilt show.
Quickly I became educated on a variety of facilities that may be available for lease and this is what I found.
