All members are expected to donate at least 1 item to be sold at the Quilt Show. What kind of items do we need?

The Boutique is our gift shop, selling new, finished quilting or sewing-related items to the public. Think purses, small quilts, baby and child items, Christmas items, etc. It is preferred that these items are handmade, not purchased. Contact Luanne Halleran at lhalleran@hotmail.com

The Small quilt raffle hopes to receive 40 quilts, maximum of 16 X 16”, and sell raffle tickets at $1/1 ticket or $5/6 tickets. Contact Diana Whitson at diana67kay@gmail.com

The Silent Auction section will accept 20 items or baskets to raffle off to the highest bidder. These do not have to be sewing related! Think wine, coffee, spa, gift certificates, etc. This is where Seaside’s family members can contribute to the inspiration that is quilting. Contact Pam Nelson at quilterpam@cfl.rr.com

Every attendee will receive a program on admission. The cost of this is paid for by program ads. 

Quilt Show Program Advertising – We need your help!  We rely on advertising to defray the cost of printing the programs for the Quilt Show.  Please think about asking your favorite restaurant manager, handyman, beautician, manicurist, pool care specialist, etc. to advertise in the program.  You can tell them that it’s a great way to get their name and services in front of the thousands of people who attend the show.

Advertising prices are a bargain:

$30 for a business card,

$125 for a half-page

$200 for a full page.

Claire Gibbs (gibbsc46@yahoo.com, 321-223-5270) can lend you a copy of the 2018 program to show to a potential advertiser.  The deadline for placing and paying for an ad is December 31st.

Checks should be made out to Seaside Piecemakers Inc., and sent to Julie Wolf, Treasurer, Seaside Piecemakers Quilt Show, P.O. Box 372761, Satellite Beach, FL 32937.
