Place Mat instructions for Meals On Wheels Project
I delivered 110 place mats to Meals on Wheels in October. That makes a total of 184 to date. We are well on our way to reaching our goal of 200 place mats. We will be accepting place mats at the November meeting which will allow me to get the labels on and the place mats delivered to Meals on Wheels in time for their holiday deliveries. Thank you so much to everyone in the guild for making this project a success.

MTQG Promotional Video:
At the October 26, 2015 Community Quilts workshop, with permission from the board, Terri New, a friend of Kay Denny came to interview and film us for a Prescott promotional video. The video is part of a series on Prescott that she is filming entitled “Humans of Prescott.”

MTQG Quilt Show 2016:
MTQG's next show will be "Every Day is a Quilting Day,"
June 3 & 4, 2016, at the Prescott Valley Event Center.
Our Opportunity Quilt was chosen as winner to be on the cover of The Quilt Shop Navigator, Southwest Region. We will also receive a free full page ad about our quilt show in 2016. See their website.
The Quilt Shop Navigator has mailed our copy of the Southwest Region Directory to us along with some flyers and posters. They should arrive next week. We will have the Directory at our November meeting and we will have a signup sheet for everyone who would like to purchase a copy/copies. The directories cost $6.95. I would ask everyone to pay as you sign up and if you are paying cash, please bring $7 as there won't be change for large bills.

With your help we are having a terrific time selling tickets for our opportunity quilt. It is currently on display at Seams Sew Right. Our next event will be at the “Last Minute Stocking Stuffer Bazaar” December 19 at the Old Armory. And then In January at the Wickenburg Quilt show the 29th and 30th. Sign-up sheets will be available at the meeting. In February we will be at the American Quilter’s Society (AQS) Quilt Week. This event is from Thursday the 11th to Sunday the 14th. I will have a sign-up sheet for ticket sales but in addition we need to provide help at the show. Below is information on how to sign up to volunteer. If you can help please sign up, let me know if you have questions or contact Melissa Winters from the website. I also need to know who has signed up to help at the show so Melissa and I can make sure the volunteers get the time slots they want. I had to try the link twice to get the sign up schedule to appear. Thanks in advance for your help.

Then you can sell them or if you’re like me put your name on them. If you know of any events where you think our quilt could be displayed and tickets sold please let us know. Thanks in advance for your help.
