What's happening in the lead up to the show..

It's less than a month until the show so it's all go go go from here on in.

A huge thank you to everyone who have entered their quilts. We wouldn't have a quilt show if it wasn't for you. So now we have all the entries what happens next?

All the information about the quilts is compiled into spread sheets. Using this information Marilyn does the huge job of creating a hanging plan. She is a wonder woman with figures and organising and always does an amazing job. The hanging plan is important for a few reasons. Firstly so we know how many quilt frames and what size quilt frames we need to order. It's the master plan that everyone follows on the day of hanging the show. In addition to that each quilt is allocated a number that corresponds with where it hangs and this is invaluable for organising the collection of the quilts at the end of the show.

Volunteers will get an email 2 weeks before the show to notify them of their shifts. Thank you to everyone who has volunteered their valuable time. It looks as though we've got a great team of wonderful helpers!!

We are still taking offers for homemade cakes and slices, especially for Sunday. We've found we can never have enough tasty treats and no matter how much we all bake they always sell out. If you would like to contribute a baked good email us at springwoodquiltshow@hotmail.com.

In the meantime you can get your quilts ready by making sure they have a label and a hanging sleeve with a minimum of 8cm. If you're not quite sure how to make a hanging sleeve follow this link to an easy tutorial.
Lots of fun times ahead!!
