Quilt Show

2017-11-01T16:38:23-04:00Quilt Show|

Our show committee is now complete. We thank everyone who has volunteered to work on our committee and we look forward to creating a successful show together.

We are very excited to announce that we have secured the Cherrywood Dutch Van Gogh exhibit for our show (http://cherrywoodfabrics.bigcartel.com/van-gogh).  This will be a wonderful addition to all of the beautiful quilts and displays that will fill the show.  Speaking of beautiful quilts, we hope everyone is hard at work on their own show entry(s).

We would ask all of the SIGs to please let us know if you will be putting an exhibit in the show. We need your information by January so that we can finalize the set up in the gym.

Once again we invite you to participate in our Silent Auction which will feature quilts that will be auctioned off at the 2018 show. If you would like to donate a piece, please keep the following guidelines in mind: perimeter less than 125” with a 3” sleeve and a label.  JoAnne Hochstein will collect completed quilts at each guild meeting. If you have any questions contact her at silentauction@northernstarquilters.com

We are very excited to be co-chairing the quilt show again this year.  Our show committee is already hard at work on a World of Quilts XXXIX. The raffle quilt designed by Donna Chambers is beautiful. In addition to the quilt we also have a Bernina sewing machine donated by Pins and Needles in Mount Kisco. Our speaker and invitational quilter is Victoria Findlay Wolfe. We look forward to hearing her lecture and viewing her amazing quilts.

As all of our committee members organize all of the behind the scenes work it is time to ask you, all of our guild members, for your support. The most important part of any quilt show is…….the quilts! We hope you are working on a quilt (or 2) that you can put in our show. Whether you are a beginning quilter or a master quilter, art, modern or traditional quilter we look forward to displaying your work. Let’s show all of our visitors what our guild is all about. If you have had a quilt in the show before you know how thrilling it is to see your work admired. If you have never put a quilt in the show please consider putting one in this year. Let’s have all members proudly wearing an “exhibitor” ribbon.

Also, now is the time to be thinking about donating a quilt for the Silent Auction. This is a part of our show that many visitors look forward to.

Of course it takes many volunteer hours to put on a show of this size. Volunteer sign- ups begin in January and we ask all members to work 2 hours on the show starting with judging all the way through to take-down. Remember, it takes an entire guild to have a successful show!

We would like to thank everyone who helped to make the show a success! Everyone who exhibited a quilt, all of the volunteers and, most especially, the amazing show committee. We look forward to working with you again!  Chris and Noreen
The Quilt Hanging Committee would also like to thank all the volunteers who put in so many hours between drop off, judging, hanging and take down.  It was a pleasure to work with you.   Maria and Nancy

Remember Quilt Registration has been extended to April 7.  Please consider showing a quilt – it does not have to be judged.
Karen Carlson is chairing the Silent Auction and is looking for more donations.  It is a good way to help the guild raise money for our expenses and a popular display at the show.  The preferred size is smaller than 25″ on any side, but this is not a hard and fast rule.
Please be sure your name is on it and preferably a hanging sleeve of some sort.  She would like to have them by the April meeting, but will accept pieces pretty much up to the show weekend.  She can be reached at quiltingkarend@aol.com
Our next Show Committee meeting is on April 11 at 4:30 in the faculty lounge at Kennedy Catholic.

Calling all Silent Auction Quilts:

As most of you know the Silent Auction is an important part of our annual show.  Not only do you get to put your quilts on display and for sale, the proceeds benefit NSQG.  So I hope many of you plan to participate.  If you do, here is some info that might be helpful: Quilts need to be approximately 25”x25” and all quilts must have a label.  It can be as simple as your name, the year and if you choose, NSQG Silent Auction.  Since many of these quilts will be wall hangings it would be helpful, especially to non-quilting bidders, if they had a sleeve.
Last year the Silent Auction table was a bit “remote”.  That issue has been addressed and they will be in a much more prominent setting.
Patricia Loquest is available at the meetings, by phone or email should you have any questions or comments.
