Hey VMQG members: exciting news! Quilt show registration opens today and runs until midnight June 30th, 2018. Please read through this post before you click on the registration link below.
Current members in good standing are now invited to register up to 3 quilts for our second Modern Quilt Showcase happening August 25 & 26th at the Pipe Shop venue in North Vancouver. If your membership has lapsed, please renew and pay up BEFORE entering any quilts as you will need your membership number in order to complete the online registration form.
To help fund our show, each person is asked to pay a $20 registration fee (this covers up to 3 quilts). This fee includes 2 tickets for the show, which you may use or gift/sell to someone else. Every guild member, including show volunteers, will require a ticket to enter the show. Pay the $20 by cash or cheque at the guild meetings after you’ve registered your quilt(s). Unfortunately, the guild Paypal account is not available to us at the moment.
You may register 1, 2, or 3 quilts. Please indicate your order of preference on the form, in case we are unable to hang all registered quilts due to space constraints. Everyone is guaranteed their 1st choice quilt will hang in the show. A “Modern Mini Challenge” quilt counts as 1 of your entries. Please see this post for challenge quilt information.
A full colour photo of the entire front and back of each quilt is required. You’ll be prompted to attach a digital photo from the picture files on your computer when you fill out the form. PLEASE NOTE: this option is only available to people who have a gmail account due to a glitch with Google forms. If you do not have a gmail account, fill out the appropriate registration form (link below) and follow photo email instructions on the form, or bring your own colour 4 x 6 photos (printed on photographic paper) to the May or June meeting.
NEED HELP? We’ll have volunteers at the May & June meetings to help photograph your quilts and/or complete the online forms with you, starting at 6:30 p.m. We’ll even have hard copy forms you can take home and return in June, if you like. To complete a registration at the guild meeting, please bring the following:
- Your quilt(s)
- Quilt size, name, brief description for show label
- Correct spelling of any design credits (quilter name, pattern, workshop, book…etc.)
- $20 cash OR cheque
PLEASE NOTE: You only need to bring quilts to the meeting if you require photography assistance.
