Committee Chairs needed

April 1, 2014

Diane Crandell, the quilt show chair for the 2015, is looking for members to to chair certain committees and get things organized for the show.  There is still a year to go, so there is plenty of time and nothing is “under the gun” at this point.  Please see the list of chairs still needed.  If you don’t feel that you have the time or the skills for the committees needed, please note the names of the chairs of certain committees and volunteer to help them out with their committee’s tasks.  Let’s all chip in and make this the best show to date.  See committee chair list here.
