The 2020 Quilt Show is Cancelled

The Show Committee has reluctantly come to the decision that our 2020 show must be cancelled. We had to wait to announce this to the guild until we received confirmation from Century II that we would get our deposit back and not be required to pay the rest of the amount due. This saved the guild thousands of dollars. We have decided not to reschedule the show.

We still have work to do in closing this thing down, refunding money to our vendors and to the guild members that entered the judged show. To get your judged entry fee back, contact Linda Highbarger at pqgksquiltshowtreasurer@pqgks.com by May 15th.

Although the guild is not in financial difficulty due to our cancelling the show, we need to pay for our expenses already spent on the show and try to help with speaker’s fees for the next two years. If you choose to donate your entry fees, that would be greatly appreciated. If you wish to do this, you don’t need to contact Linda. Any entries that haven’t been requested for refund will automatically go to the guild after May 15th.

We plan to hold a drawing for the opportunity Quilt at our October meeting. Usually the bulk of the tickets are sold at the show so we need you to really support the guild and buy tickets at the meetings before the drawing. How about spending the $12 you would have spent on a ticket to the show on Opportunity Quilt tickets instead? If everyone in the guild did that, it would bring in over $6000.

There are still tee shirts available; they will be for sale at future meeting. We still plan to hold the Mini Quilt Auction; see Susan McMillian’s article about how that will work. Keep making those mini quilts for the auction; we need them even more now!

Our featured quilter, Leslie Snodgrass will have a chance to display her quilts at the October guild meeting.

It is disappointing that after all our work we don’t get to enjoy the show. Let’s look forward to our show in 2022!
