Thanks to everyone who made this year such a successful show. There were lots of beautiful quilts on display, great vendors, and some wonderful guests who came to view it all!
Thanks as well to to the North Augusta Arts Council for their support of our show and to the North Augusta Activities Center at Riverview Park for all the hard work they do that makes putting this show on possible.

Quilt show update

Registration forms are in and we have over 200 quilts per-registered! Our judge this year is Susan Edmonson from North Carolina and if guild meeting "show and tell" is any indicator she has her job cut out for her.

We have some great vendors lined up. Something for everyone....

Quilt Show Registration Forms...

The quilt registration forms went out with the March newsletter. There are some new categories this year including "First Show" for some of our new quilters and several Professional categories for the quilt teachers and long-arm quilters in our guild. As with our other shows expect to see a wide range of styles and techniques!

Our demonstrations committee is putting together a program for each day so there should be plenty to see!

Show Postcards Arrived!

Postcards announcing the show arrived this week from the printer. They look great! We used the quilt that was awarded "Best Use of Color" in our last show on the postcard. The cards will go out in the mail to guilds in Georgia and the Carolinas in May. We will also send "stacks" to our vendors so they can give them to their customers over the summer.

(We used or these cards and I couldn't be happier with the entire experience.)

Starting to get busy....

Just a bit over 7 months until the show. While that may seem like a long time those of you who have put on shows in the past know this it is time to get busy!

Our advertising postcards went to the printer today. Each year we have such wonderful quilts but not as big an attendance as we should so this year we are really going to put the word out and see if we can't double (yes, double!) the attendance from our last show. First step was getting out postcards professionally done. So far the printer we are using has been really good to work with...I'll let you know!

Also our vendor coordinator says the contracts for the vendors went out this week. She has verbal commitments from several and it looks like we will have a good variety. (Because what is a quilt show without quilting stuff to carry home!)

Date Change!

Due to a conflict with both the Georgia Show and the South Carolina State Quilter's retreat at White Oak we are moving the date of the Pieceful Heart's Quilt show back one week to the 14th and 15th of October.
