Entries may include garments, purses and bags, table toppers and a wide variety of other items!

Membership Participation - High Five Points
A point system called “High Five” is established to encourage guild member participation in the Quilt Show and our Community Service Projects. Points are awarded for volunteering your time working on the quilt show and for baby quilts, dolls and animals that you make throughout the year. For every five points awarded, the guild member will be able to add an entry for a prize to be awarded at the first meeting following the quilt show. High Five cards are always available at the front table at the Guild meetings. Any time you help or participate with anything related to the quilt show, you may have one of the Committee Heads initial your card. When you have all 5 points on a card, place it in the High Five Box at the Quilt Show table and get another card for more chances to win the prize! No limit on number of entries.

Members are encouraged to donate an item to our extra large baskets we will be giving as a door prizes. Earn a High Five point for each item donated to the baskets.
Quilt Show Guest Favors:
We are using the flowers that were made for the 2014 show. We anticipate enough to cover current need.
Since our theme for the show revolves around flowers -- we thought we would make flower pins for those attending the show. These flowers can be made of fabric, crocheted, knitted, or anything else you might like to use. They should be no more than 2" to 3" in size. Each will have a backing and a jewelry pin attached to the back.
Chairperson: Bobbi Beckhorn 607-592-0449
We look forward to your help offering demos of various tips, techniques and other fun things to sew or make.
Chairs: Sally Acomb 607-377-0792, Flo Meredith 585-813-3047.
Do you know a merchant that might like to participate? Have them contact the Chairpersons soon! We look forward to offering about 10-12 different quilt and sewing related merchants in the gymnasium with the quilts.
Community Service: Baby Quilts and Charity Items
NEED A VOLUNTEER TO COORDINATE
