Call for Quilt Fest Volunteers and Quilt Show Entries!!!

It is hard to believe the summer is almost over and it's even harder to believe that we are just a few weeks away from Quilt Fest.  If you would like to volunteer some of your time and help us this year, we sure could use you even if for a couple of hours.  Come see old friend and make some new ones.   Some of the needs include help at the registration desk, white glove "Vanna's" at the quilt show, mini quilt ticket sales and challenge quilts, and of course at the art auction baskets.  Contact the Volunteer Coordinator, Bev DeMaria.  Members can obtain her contact information from the UQG website.   Thank you in advance.

If you’ve never entered a quilt in a competition before, it is where you can learn and improve so much.  We can’t have a quilt show without your beautiful quilts.  Don’t forget to sew a label and a proper sleeve on your quilt.  A proper sleeve ensures that your quilt can be hung on our quilt hanging system.  Step by step instructions for adding a sleeve to your quilt can be found at UQG website under the Events tab.  I have even searching for a few videos for you.
