NEWS FROM YOUR 2024 QUILT SHOW BOUTIQUE COMMITTEE
We are busy brainstorming and planning to make the best use of our new venue with more space.
Starting after the first of the year you can come to this spot in the website or the monthly newsletter to receive important information, look at photo ideas and find links to tutorials and patterns.
We have created a page on Pinterest for everyone to view photo ideas, find free patterns and links to free tutorials. Some of them may be patterns available for purchase. If you already have a Pinterest account you can access the page at – www.pinterest.com/wqgboutique. Once you are on the site, you can go to the individual boards to browse. If you click on the photo or it’s associated link, you will be taken to the original blog, tutorial, pattern, etc. For those of you that do not have a Pinterest account, you’ll need to follow the instructions to create your own account. This is free and allows you to save ideas, view the links and more.
We will also use the Wednesday Patch, Facebook and Instagram to share information.
In the coming year, we will plan a few fun Sew Days just to get together and work on projects.
At monthly meetings, we plan to set up a table to have fabrics from storage for boutique item use, along with some patterns.
Reach out to Ruth Voelker or Linda O’Brien with your “I’d buy that!” ideas for eyecatching, saleable things you’d like to make. Remember, this is a great way to raise funds for our guild.

Two parts of the Quilt Show 2024 are under Ways and Means.
1) The Raffle Quilt: A quilt is being created to follow the theme of the 2024 Quilt Show Quilt. GROW ME A GARDEN – The committee’s goal is to have the quilt ready to share and the tickets ready to sell at the January General Meeting.
2) Selling the Raffle Tickets: When the Raffle Quilt is ready we sell the raffle tickets. Ways and Means needs a committee to set up and oversee the selling of the raffle tickets. This takes a lot of help and I am asking for someone to coordinate this with me. Until the quilt is ready, and the tickets are printed we should be working on places to sell the tickets. Events, high traffic community events, somewhere that doesn’t take a piece of the pie. Places before have been a Saturday at Aloha Sew and Vac,, Hortlandia (Hardy Plant Society of Oregon), Montavilla in Beaverton. Possibly we can share or trade space with other guilds and at other Quilt Shows. Spaces may cost a little money and we may want to evaluate that. This is a brief description of this very necessary position. Can’t wait to find out who you are.
