Quilt Show 2016
Information for Guild Members
This is from Lisa Salvatore
Though I have taken the lead to start organizing our next show, I realize my role as chairperson still requires approval from the guild. In the meantime, I think it’s efficient to get the ball rolling.
The first step is to pull together a board of volunteers. Some of the positions require more time than others. Please feel free to contact me with questions. Lisa Salvatore 860-651-6225
