Let the Games Begin!

Well, it sounds more fun than “Let’s Get to Work!” It IS a lot of work putting on a quality quilt show, but we do have fun in spite of that. Many parts make the whole event and most of those go together like well oiled gears. Members have streamlined the processes and tweaked this and that to make it even smoother for the next year. This year will be tougher than most. We did not have our faire last year, so our newer members need training, and we lost quite a few members in 2020 & 2021. Some moved away from the mountains, and we lost some in death. The most challenging part will be keeping up with the shifting rules and current mandates that COVID causes.

This year our Quilt Faire ‘Queen’ is Dana Osterlund. This means that she is in charge of everything involving the Quilt Faire. Quilt Faire committees (35 of them), report to her on their status.

Entered quilts and exhibits are analyzed, arranged and rearranged. All applications are sorted (by size, color and theme) during a Planning meeting. The final show layout is decided at this meeting and the results are distributed to the frame builders and the check-in and return crews.

Now, all the behind the scenes work gets serious. We have only 18 days or so to prepare for our invasion of Ironstone Vineyards and what we call “Quilt Faire Week”

See you there!
