National Quilt Day Celebration 2015

Salt Lake-Ogden Longarm Guild March 20-21, 2015

Well, so much is happening this month!! 

First I want to finalize everything for the National Quilt Day Celebration.  The celebration that we are taking part in is at Fairfield Village (Formerly Legacy Village), the same place it has been for the last two years.  Dates are March 20 and 21.  

At our last meeting I sent around a couple of lists for help, donations, etc.  I just wanted to remind of everyone who signed up of their times.

Friday, March 20
11 a.m.- 1 p.m.                  Nancy Goodwin
1 p.m. – 3 p.m.                  Marsha Ashby, DeAnn Oliekan
3 p.m. – 5 p.m.                  Gaye Ryon
5 p.m. – 7 p.m.                  Connie Eagle

Saturday, March 21
10 a.m. – 12 p.m.             Michelle Noble, Julie Linford
12 p.m.-2 p.m.                  Louise Mudd
2 p.m. – 4 p.m.                  Darlene Walker

It is best to have two people at the same time, so if you would like to sign up for one of the free times, please let me know by email,

Lunch will be available at the Fairfield Village, price is $6 each day.  It will be in their dining room, and there is a selection, including a salad bar.  It will not be as before with box lunches.  I MUST have numbers for each day that I can submit by next Monday night.  Please send RSVP on that by email as soon as possible.

We will have a table for our guild, and it would be nice if we had some nice quilts to display in it.  I think this is a great time for any of us who quilt for customers to show off our stuff and get some clientele.  We will also be selling items at our table, so if you would like to donate, also please let me know by email.  Michele Noble signed up for something to donate and sell at our table, and I will be selling small bottles of quilt soap.

So far we have not had anyone except Barbie Mills say they had a quilt to enter in the show.  Our guild can enter up to six quilts, only two of which can be more than 65x65 aggregate circumference.  (260 inches)  The names of the piecer and quilter will be displayed.  If you have a quilt you wish to enter in the quilt show, contact Gaye Ryon, she will be spearheading that. 

We also have the opportunity to enter mini-quilts for sale, the money will come in to our guild.  Those who signed up for that are Cory Weir, Chris Robinson, Carolee Jensen, and Debbie Burrows.
Last, but certainly not least, I would like to have a list of our guild members who quilt for customers available to give out at the celebration.  If you would like your name included, please either send contact information, or a scan of your business card.  I would like to get as many on there as possible.

Now for OUR MEETING THAT HAS BEEN CHANGED TO MARCH 28TH!  Please note the change in date!  The meeting will be at Handi-Quilter, 10 a.m.  Our Handi-Quilter ladies will be taking charge of the meeting, teaching their TNT seminar (Thread, Needles, Tension).  Even if you have seen this before, it is worth the review!  We will also be taking a tour through their new facility, and there will be an opportunity to shop for Handi-Quilter items.  This will be a really great meeting, so please don’t forget to come the next week after the National Quilt Day Celebration.
