Hello all, Mary Ellen here.
I hope you were able to come to BNHV last weekend to enjoy our long awaited quilt show. The quilts, as always were lovely and showcased the talent of so many of our members. Here’s a list of all of the award winners if you are interested. 2022 show awards. As I was doing my tours as a white glove lady I had questions about not having a program for the show. Sadly I had to answer that with so many fewer members and volunteers the scope of our show had to change. Please think about joining again if you didn’t renew your membership, and about getting involved on a committee or two.
While chatting and admiring the quilts the fabulous long arm quilting on many of the quilts came up frequently. We thought that perhaps we could gather the names and specialties of quilters for hire that our members have used and can recommend. If you have a quilter you use, or you are a quilter for hire yourself, please put the name, contact information, and type of quilting done in the comment section below. I’m hoping this could become a point of reference for all of us to use.
Keep working on those blocks and/or projects for our Sunflowers for Ukraine effort. Our next meeting to discuss our efforts going forward will be on Thursday, May 26 at 10:30. We’ll size up what projects and blocks have been submitted to date, decide on which days at the museum we will sell tickets and when the raffle days will be, make up “kits” for small projects with the blocks we have, and whatever other details we think of in the discussions. Anyone who would like to stay to work is welcome. We’ll check out the fabrics in the guild stash that would be helpful, and perhaps even use the Accuquilt machine to die cut fabrics for the kits.
Mary Ellen, Linda Hunter has a list already compiled for quilt shows locally as well as long arm quilter‘s. This might be a good place to start. Your road about questions about the quilt show. I also had to field some of these kind of questions. regardless it was a wonderful show, and everyoneThere apparently enjoyed it as well.
I would also like a list of long arm quilters.
The important thing would be to find a way to share, possibly on the web site.
