Quilt Show News
Thank you, all for a wonderful Quilt Show. Everyone who volunteered did such a good job! The committee members were so great. I took a class the next day in Simi Valley and those that came remarked how helpful and pleasant the volunteers were. I talked with the vendors and they seemed pleased with the business they received. The location was great, but too expensive so we need to start looking for a better location now. Keeping in mind, some places will not commit far ahead of time.
Thank you so much for a very enjoyable day. Note here, thank you Nancy Mayer for picking up after me. Nancy remembered to get the list of winners of ribbons. I did not remember until I went to bed that night.

We are still working out the details of how much we made. The total count of volunteers and visitors was 490 people. We will have more information at the Holiday Party on profit. One thing for sure, $2600.00 to pay for a facility was too much.
