Quilt Show Update



 
 Charlene, Quilt Show Chairperson has written the following update:

We are in our final countdown before quilt show and wish to remind everyone of the following:

1)  Our tea room committee is looking for donations of baked goods to be served to our guests
during the quilt show. 
They have specifically asked for finger type foods (that kind that require no forks  to eat). Anything brought to the meeting on Thursday will be kept frozen until the quilt show.  Donations can also be brought directly to Oakridge Presbyterian Church on Thursday Oct 16th during set up.

2)  We will accept last minute entries to the quilt show on Thursday. Please bring completed quilt show registration forms to the meeting.

3)  We ask that members bring all sold and unsold raffle tickets to the guild meeting.  Tiny Campbell will be collecting these. We are required to account for all tickets and appreciate everyone's help with this.

 4)  The volunteer list will be at the meeting  --- if you haven't signed up yet please do so.  There are several spots where assistance is still needed.  We are still looking for  volunteers to help setup at the Church on Thursday  --- we would especially appreciate if anyone has a husband, boyfriend, son or brother who can help with some of the heavier aspects of setup.

 5) We are also in need of a few Step ladders (the taller ones) to be used during setup.  If you have one we can borrow please contact Charlene at char8892@hotmail.com

6)  Quilt drop off will be Wednesday Oct 15th at Oakridge Presbyterian Church from
1 pm to 7 pm.  Please bring all quilts for the show on that day.

 7) Quilts can be picked up after the show on Sunday October 18th from 1:30 to 4:30 at the home of Amalia Samakis, 1026 Blackmaple Court, London Ontario.
