Pictures from the Quilt Show

It takes a whole guild to put on a show. Our guild is 64 members strong. We hung 232 quilts on Friday, with the center isle of quilts playing dominoes and falling down about 1pm.  It was like playing pick up sticks, carefully picking up the quilts and black clothes that hung between the rows of quilts.  That set us back at least 1.5 hrs.  But the show must go on.  We just dug deeper into our souls for more energy. 

Below are Linda Sampo, Helen Bickett, and Joyce Allen taking admission at the front door.

Above is Annette Byrne selling raffle tickets to the Mariner's Compass quilt and pillow cover.  The winner of the quilts draw late Sunday was Marlene Gibson.  Congratulations to Marlene for winning Best in Show and the raffle quilts.  Hope you went out and bought a lottery ticket!

Above is Carolyn Schmitt working at the Boutique.

All weekend Mary Serafini was busy with quilt appraisals.  She is also mentoring a future quilt appraiser.

Above is Claudia Mykiska and Barb Amrein consulting over the used magazine and book sales.  In the background you can see the vendor booths set up around the perimeter of the building.

Below is LeeAnn Clary and Ann Baker who were in charge of the raffle baskets.  There were 20 gift baskets and 2 money trees raffled off.  Wow, were those baskets loaded with goodies.  The Moses basket loaded with goodies for a new baby was stunning.  Any new born was going to be very comfortable in this collection of clothing, quilt, and assorted baby goodies.

Above is the ongoing sewing table.  I was piecing a superman quilt and my lovely assistants decided they wanted to try their hand at sewing on the Featherweight machine.  This is Savannah and Bryar, our budding quilters.  They were our very helpful assistants all weekend.  Thanks girls.

Hope you have enjoyed the pictures of our 2013 Sea of Dreams Quilt Show. 
Yours in quilting,
