Can you help out with Maker Faire?

As many of you know, the VMQG is participating in Maker Faire again this year, June 10th and 11th. This will be our 7th year at the Faire and we’ve been there every year since it started in Vancouver!

We need help in two different ways – volunteers, and quilts to display.

If you’d like to volunteer, you can sign up RIGHT HERE. We especially need volunteers for Saturday, June 10th, but we also have a shift available Friday night (for set up) and Sunday afternoon. Volunteering in our booth is a great way to share your love of quilting with others, and don’t worry, you’ll have plenty of time to check out all the other amazing booths too!

If you’re not able to volunteer, you can still help us represent our guild by lending us your quilts.

We always have a nice crowd happening at our booth and what we need from our members is a selection of modern quilts to display.

(It’s important to realize that people might be touching your quilt.  If you’re not ok with this, then please don’t contribute a quilt for display at the booth.) 

Feel free to lend us quilts in varying stages of completion, so that we have examples to show people of how quilts are put together, and remember that quilts that are “geeky” in any way are always incredibly popular!

If you’d like to have some of your quilts on display in our booth, you can bring them to the Jacquie Gering lecture on Friday, May 26th at MEC Head Office, 1077 Great Northern Way, Vancouver.

Amy will be at the lecture to receive your quilts. If you aren’t able to attend the lecture, but have the perfect quilt for our display, feel free to email our 2017 Maker Faire coordinator Mel at to see if arrangements can be made. Quilts will be returned at our June guild meeting.
