Anniversary Mt Bachelor Quilters’ Guild
Show in the Park
August 10, 2013
Happy August everyone. Summer is going full swing.
I've had one of the best summers so far. I've been able to travel and see my
family. It doesn't get better than that, except I haven't sewn at all.
Hope everyone was able to get up to Sisters for
the quilt show. But just remember that the second largest outdoor quilt show
(not sure if it actually is but I will claim it!) is coming up! August 10th in
Pioneer Park! Be there or be
square!!!! Can't wait!! See you there!
MBQG 30th Anniversary Committee

who are former guild members, let them know they are invited to join the
celebration and be our guests at the picnic as well as the show. They can sign
our guest list and get a name tag at our table near the featured quilts
There were only three quilts entered for the challenge "Memories of
Mount Bachelor Quilters" at the July meeting. If you have one in progress
finished in time for the show, please bring it to quilt collection on August 9

Quilt Raffle Ticket Sales
Mary Ann B.
The raffle quilt will be at QuiltWorks for first Friday on August 2nd. Also, it will be at the Sunriver Quilt

all Snow Child Quilts
There will be a special exhibit of Snow Child quilts at the Quilt Show
on August 10. If you have one that
you would like to show, please bring it to quilt collection on August 9
(details in the quilt show article).
On the day of the quilt show, it’s great fun if everyone
wears their guild t-shirt. If you haven’t purchased one, can’t find yours, or
just want a new one, they will be on sale on Friday, August 9th at
the rec center when you turn in your quilts and also on Saturday at our show in
Pioneer Park. We still have most sizes. Cost is $15.
2013 30th Anniversary Mt. Bachelor
Quilt Show in the Park- August 10
At Parks & Rec Building,
Community room, 799 SW Columbia St., Friday, August 9th from 10-3.
All quilts must have a cloth
label sewn on to the back of the quilt.
All quilts must have a
completed quilt show entry form.
We will have copies of the form at the Quilt Collection. PLEASE do not pin
the paper label to your quilt.
We will do this after the quilt is submitted.
HOLD on to your RECEIPT!!! It’s
very important that you have the receipt from quilt collection day. This is the only way for you to pick up
yours or your friends quilts.
The Quilt Return committee
cannot return quilts without a receipt.
If you have any questions about
Quilt Collection, please email Jane D. or Susan M. Thank you to those that have volunteered to help with Quilt
Collection on the 9th.
Please use Sales Table Form
(available on August 9th and sent by Kristin in an email) to itemize
your quilt-related items. Most
anything quilt/sewing related can be place in the Sales Area. One thing we’ve added this year, is the
ability to sell member’s quilts.
If you are asking to place any more than 2 quilts in the Sales Area, we
would like you to help in the sales area to promote the sales of the larger
quilts. Please notify Susan M. if
you plan on selling more than 2 quilts.
Sales proceeds will be
collected by MBQG, payments to members/non-members will be made after the Board
meeting subsequent to the quilt show.
Most will be available at the September Guild meeting.
MBQG will withhold 10% of sales
proceeds from sales of members.
MBQG will withhold 15% of sales
proceeds from sales of non-members.
Each seller must complete a 2013 Quilt Show Sales Inventory Form. Individually list each item to be
sold on the sales table. List each
item separately, describing it completely, no ditto marks please. Each item needs to have a sticky label
or string tag attached. The number
on the bag, stack of magazines, etc. will match the item # in the column on
your Sales Form. The tag needs to
have: Seller’s name or initials,
price, and the number that corresponds to the Sales Form list. This is important to help
the sales committee track your items accurately. Please price items for $1 or more to make it easier for the
Items accepted: zip lock bags of fabric, zip lock bags
of quilting notions, quilt books & magazines (bundled in at least 4 or more),
zip lock bags of craft items, sewing machines and related

also put quilting related items in the “Freebie” area, these items would NOT be
listed on your Sales Inventory Form.
On Quilt Show Day---8/10/13
No sales will occur before the
Quilt Show opens. No items can be
“reserved” or set aside before the Quilt Show opens. At the end of the show,
sellers may collect their unsold items from the sales table and check out with
a member of the sales committee, who will check off unsold items on Sales
Inventory form before you remove your items.
Potluck and Misc.
Please remember to bring your
item of choice for the potluck.
You may need to bring a cooler if your potluck dish needs to be kept
cold. You may want to bring a camp
chair also. Remember to wear your
Mt. Bachelor Quilters’ Guild T-shirt (see the previous article if you are
looking for a guild t-shirt) and your Name Tag.
I am looking forward to a
wonderful show this year and will see you bright and early on the 10th---we
start set-up at 7 a.m. Bring
any helpers available and the job will go quickly and smoothly! Also, if any helpers will be available
at the end of the show, at 4 p.m., we will need help breaking down the quilt
frames, etc. Any questions, please email me- firstname.lastname@example.org!

There is no raffle this month due to the quilt
show. The following books have
been donated to library: Sensational
Settings by Joan Hanson, Conway Album Quilt (I’m not from Baltimore),
by Irma Gail Hatcher, and Double Pinwheel Quilt, by Eleanor Burns. In moving the library cabinet to my
home, I found that there are a number of missing books that were not checked
out. If you have a book with the
tag that says that it belongs to the Guild and it is not formally checked out,
please return it to me at the next Guild meeting. Thank you for your support of the Guild library.

asking for quilts that have not been exhibited in the gallery before and have
been made within the last two years. We will be limiting the number of quilts
we can take in each category and will have registration forms available soon.

Another Successful Quilt Show
We are happy to say that we added another successful Sisters Outdoor
Quilt Show to the history books. More than 1300 quilts were displayed around
Sisters and close to 12,000 people came to visit. We are truly grateful to all
those who volunteer, enter quilts and come to see our beautiful town covered in
What’s Coming in August…
We are so excited to have Such Designs (Carrie Bloomston) new fabric
collection “Collage” arriving this month. We have the entire collection of
fabric and several patterns that we know you will love. Our favorite so far is
Nest. This collection is artful and bold, prints filled with words, text &
newsprint. Waterfront from Violet Craft (for Michael Miller) is truly
“Oregonian” in image and nature. This fun, modern collection is filled with
birds, bridges and boats…How Portlandia! We just love the blues, oranges,
violets and yellows.
