PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE September 2020
By Nancy Arico
BVQ Quilt Show Re-imagined has begun!
Registration for the “Take 5 – 5 Days, 5 Ways to Release Your Creative Genius” has opened and the workshops are filling up! If you are looking for information on the workshops check out our newly redesigned webpage. (If you do not have access – call me!) How can you help these be successful, you ask! Share, invite, call, or email your guilting friends outside guild and tell them about BVQ’s good works and these great opportunities to take a class with one of the great teachers we have.
There is still time to donate a Little Quilt or Basket to our online Raffle! Again, all the details are on our website and don’t forget to send the form to Colleen so she knows what is coming. Once this raffle opens, we will need everyone to help us promote it. Besides supporting our mission, your friend s and family could win a beautiful little quilt or a basket full of goodies.
The Vendor Spotlight will kick off in October! Several of our smaller vendors have agreed to join us at our meetings and offer “pop-up” shops between October and December. This is a great was to help these small businesses during this time so they are still around when we can have a show! Again, this is open to anyone so please help us spread the word.
Finally, we have a few Quilts in Living Color Mugs remaining. You can order on our website or contact Bobbie Spaid.
Thank you to all who have been working hard to make each of these events a success for BVQ!
REMEMBER – Please share each of these events with your quilting and non-quilting friends and any groups and guilds that you may be affiliated with through family members, friends, etc. This is particularly important for the Little Quilt and Basket Raffles and the Vendor Spotlight. Nothing is effective as your personal invitation. The farther we reach, the better the results for BVQ!
Stay BVQ strong and I will see you on Zoom on September 8th, until then quilt on! Nancy
