The drawing for a chance to win this quilt will be done at the Showcase of Quilts, January 24, 2015. This Quilting Guild of The Villages quilt show will be held at the Savannah Center, January 23-24, 2015. Check out the Showcase of Quilts page on this website for more information about the Quilting in Paradise quilt show as it becomes available. Meanwhile, be sure to mark your calendars for this special event!
Don't pass up this opportunity:
The Showcase Committee is looking for volunteers to act as scribes on judging days: January 8-9 at Laurel Manor. Using a Quilt Evaluation form, scribes check off some boxes and then write - legibly - the judges' comments as directed. There will be teams of scribes assigned to specific time slots so no one or two people will have to do it all. If your handwriting is clear and you can keep a secret, this will be a wonderful opportunity to see exactly how quilting judges work. Read the Scribe Volunteer Request sheet for the details.
Don't forget to renew your VIP Discount Card for JoAnn Fabric and Craft Stores
Just a short reminder that now is the time to renew your VIP Card at JoAnn's. To get a card, show your current Guild Membership card (2014). If you already have a card, bring it and your Guild card so they can update it for another year. All those little 10 percent discounts add up over time.
While we are talking discounts, don't hesitate to ask at quilt shops if they have a discount program for quilting guild members. Many do reward us for our consistency in trading with their establishments. Besides being generous with our quilted items, we are a consistent bunch of shoppers when it comes to cotton and quilting notions!
