The 19th Biennial Dutchess Heritage Quilt Show is upon us. Please mail your entry forms for quilt to Stacy Whittaker prior to the meeting. The deadline is September 19, but it is so helpful to receive them in advance. We really appreciate those who have already sent them in.
Holly Harvey and Carol Weber are collecting entries for the fashion show. It is always a beautiful show, and the sooner you let them know what you will be sharing, the easier it is for them to plan the show. Raffle ticket sales for the scholarship raffle quilt are moving along, especially when the quilt is displayed. Thanks to Carole Peterson and Linda Dearing for their work to show the quilt in Beacon at the Howland Center. We also had space in the “Quilting in Our Community” display at the Dutchess County Fair. Please contact Linda Dearing or Janet Jozwiak if you have a location to show the quilt and offer tickets for sale. Perhaps your church or another guild will allow you this opportunity.
This is the meeting where you pick up a show sign to post in your yard. Even if you think no one will see it, this is a really helpful and visible form of show marketing. Please take at least one and put it in a visible place in your yard. We will collect them at the October meeting.
Elaine Watkins is taking volunteer sign-ups and still has many openings. Your assistance in needed. We will be setting up the show on Friday, October 11, and packing it all away on Sunday, October 13. Please give us as much of your time as possible during this window.
The FDQ Guild will be offering used magazines at the show this year. They can be dropped off at Karen Abramson’s home, 240 Creek Road, Poughkeepsie, at any time. You can also bring them on entry drop off day. Please do not bring them to the meeting, the only collection points are Karen’s house or DCC during the show.
