Do You Hear That? It’s Chaos Coming!

Tomorrow is Labor Day and for most people the Monday holiday will be spent tending a BBQ, catching up on a good book, or visiting family/friends.

NOT for the Independence Hall Quilters, however. This year the Monday holiday falls on our guild’s “First meeting back”, after summer break.  September is here and we can’t spare any Mondays for jocularity*. Quilt Faire happens on the first weekend of October this year and, despite popular belief, it does not come together by magic.

Tomorrow there will be no chaos, not really. There will be loud talking, loud laughter, summer projects hung everywhere to show off. Gals will be turning in entries for the faire, to moi because I am the co-chair of submissions. I will be asked a lot of questions – I have a list of my own questions to ask people, because making the quilt is the big deal, filling out the submission form – not so much. Blank spaces where information should be. Titles and measurements being crucial to anyone planning the show and building the frames to hang them.

My favorite: using an overly Xeroxed form from a different year, crossing out the old year and unfortunately missing the information for 2016.

You know who you are.

Then, after all that Hub-Bub…  The monthly Board Meeting is held. The agenda must be monstrous!  The president should send it out this evening. I hope it’s under 3 pages.

In spite of all that – It will be great fun! I can’t explain it – it just is!
