Festival of Quilts – May 2021 Update

The second online 50/50 Raffle is now LIVE.

If you are interested in supporting this fundraising initiative, please go on the Rafflebox website to purchase your tickets prior to June 4th.

 

The draw will take place the next day, June 5th.

Tickets are no longer mailed out so print or save a copy of your tickets at the time you buy them. The winning ticket number is now generated by a random number generator. The winner’s name will be posted on the Guild website and on the Facebook pages that the Guild is active on.  Remember, the proceeds of this fundraiser will go towards paying for space rental for the next EDQG Quilt Show. Share the link with your family and friends and thank you for supporting this endeavor.

Thank you to everyone who entered quilts in the Virtual Quilt Show and to everyone who took the time to vote for a winner in each category. It was difficult to choose just one winner as they were all great. I know it is not the same as seeing the quilts in person, but in light of the COVID-19 situation, it is the best we could do under the circumstances. Hopefully, when we get back to meeting in person, we can see these quilts at show and tell.

We will be announcing the winners from the Virtual Quilt Show during the May 19 Guild Meeting.  Each category will have a first and second place winner. If there are extra ribbons that aren’t needed for a tie situation, those will be given to the third-place winners in the largest categories until all ribbons have been distributed. Each Youth entry will get a ribbon as well. We will also announce the name of the member whose quilt received the most votes, a Best in Show so to speak. All of the quilts were beautiful and you are all winners! Great job everyone! Keep up the good work. Now you can start to make plans for your 2023 entries… 🙂
