QUILT SHOW IS THIS WEEK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A reminder to our members from the Quilt Show Committee:

Quilt drop off time is Wednesday from 1 pm until 7 pm at Rowntree United Church.  Remember to bring your quilt in a clear plastic bag.  If you are putting more than one quilt or quilted item in the show, please bag each one separately.  Make sure to wait until Edith has provided you with your receipt for each of your items before you leave.
We are hoping to receive more raffle donations and contributions of baked goods for our tea room this week.  You can bring these with you on Wednesday.
Volunteers, we need you and rely on you.  Please make sure to arrive at the church a bit before your designated time and come to the front table to check out where you are needed. Thank you so much for choosing to be part of the show.
Please come to see the show and bring your friends and neighbours. Enjoy the fabulous quilts and remember to check out the vendor mall, the tea room and the toonie table while you are there.
