Register and enter your quilt now!
The TQG 2016 Quilt Show rules and registration forms are now available. They can be found on www.tqgva.org under the tab “Quilt Show.” They are formatted so you can print them yourselves. The rules brochure and registration form will also be in your SEW WHAT March newsletter and a limited amount at the chapter meetings.
Upon reading the rules, if you have any questions or need clarification please contact Karan Fisher, Debbi Coleman, Jane Ann Snyder, or Ann Walls. Their contact information is on the rules brochure and in the TQG roster.
When you register your item for entry, please consider having your quilt or wearable entered for judging. I have learned some things from the items I have had judged in past quilt shows from the constructive criticism passed on to me by the judge. It has helped me improve on my quilting skills and enlightened me on what to look at when I am choosing fabrics and patterns.
Some suggestions for you when deciding which quilt/wearable you want to enter:
While you are in your “quilting frame of mind”, it is also a good time to clean out your stash, your magazines & books, your patterns, kits that you can’t even remember why you have them and UFO’s that you know you won’t complete and donate them to the quilt show’s “Silent Auction”. We will gladly take them and make them available to go to a new home.
To donate your items to the Silent Auction, please contact Alexis Gardner, Faye Hannah or Nancy McLaulin. Their contact information is listed in the TQG Roster. Remember, the dates for the 2016 Quilt
Show are June 17 – 18, 2016 at the Cape Henry Collegiate, Virginia Beach, VA.
If you have any questions or would like to help with the quilt show, please contact Karan Fisher, Quilt
Show Chairperson at email@example.com or phone (757) 761-1173. Let’s get busy!!! 145 days until the
TQG 2016 QUILT SHOW!
The next Quilt Show Committee meeting is March 24th, 2016 at 6:30PM, Community United Methodist Church, Room 206, 1072 Old Kempsville Road, Virginia Beach, VA 23464
