Quilt Show Update

As of March 11, with a little over 50 days left before our 30th anniversary show, we had only 68 quilts entered in the show. We also had only 13 quilts in our special Charter/Hall of Honor exhibit. I am hoping that each and every one of you are working hard to get those quilt entries in. We are also in great need for volunteers to work the show. I know that White Glove, alone, still needs 18 volunteers to work both Saturday and Sunday with other areas still needing people to work. Please consider what you can do to make this show a special one. Thank you!

President's messagePresident's Message • April 2014

PTQG President, Joan MosleyWelcome daylight savings time and spring! The flowers and buds blooming, new leaves and more daylight energize me! It's a great time of year to complete quilts and enter them in the Spring Time in the Pines quilt show. Our next Guild meeting isApril 1, and that's the deadline for getting quilt show entry forms to Nancyan Tracy. We are honored to have our very own FAMOUS Sandra Bruce for our April guest speaker, and workshop presentation, Material Matrix. the next day, Sandra has a five page article in Quilting Arts Magazine this month! Congratulations, Sandra!

Rumors abound within any group and our Guild is no exception. Recently I was asked why the Guild needs to do fund raising when there is a projected surplus in the Guild of over $8,000 this year. Hmmm, that's news to the Board! The reality is $8,170 is the profit budgeted for the Quilt Show profit. To summarize the 2014 budget, we have a total income projected of $23,670, and expenditures of $27,662 for a shortfall of $3,662. That means we are spending $3,662 more than we are expecting to take in! Our expenses are so high because we are very generous to our community and members. We give scholarships, community services, pay storage and meeting space rent, insurance, have quality speakers and workshops, and on and on! Some years we are able to add to our surplus, and then there are other years we have had to use some of our surplus, and are grateful it's there. If anyone has any concerns or questions about fundraising, finance, or any activities offered by the Guild, please bring those concerns directly to an Executive Board member to be addressed.

Our Guild consists of an amazing group of energetic ladies! Without their ideas and capabilities to carry out projects, we would be a pretty dull place. A huge thank you to Ruth Bertaccini, Joan Mosley and Kate Grant for the fun March Mixer, Lois Hodges for the Challenge Quilt contest, and Joy Waggener, LeVeta Nevius and Margaret Boothby for presenting their entertaining play "The Road to California." It was a delightful evening and all who attended went away smiling.

Everyone is encouraged to sign up to work on the Quilt Show! It's always fun to be one of the helpers and be involved with the set-up, take down or the Show itself.
