Help us Celebrate 35 Years!
As promised, we’re launching our “Tell Us Your Stories” campaign for our 35th Anniversary documentary film. We’d like to invite you to participate. If you have any photos, film, video or memorabilia from a show that you attended that truly expresses the spirit of the show – we’d like to know about it. If you have a story that you’d like to suggest for inclusion in the documentary – we’d LOVE to know about it. This could be an experience that happened here that made an impact on you, could be why you came to the show, people you met, your personal connection with the show. We’re looking for a few really moving stories that highlight the connections and community associated with Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show. You can email your stories to Stories@SistersOutdoorQuiltShow.org. Kara Jensen or an associate of hers will contact anyone with a story, film, photos or memorabilia that we’d like to use. And we thank EVERYONE for participating – we hope to find ways to use everyone’s stories, even if they don’t make it into the film.
Don’t forget about Wish Upon a Card – this show, sale and silent auction of fabric postcards is in its fourth year and we’ve already raised over $30,000 for local cancer support services. We’re shooting for 1,000 postcards! We’ll jury the best 50 – 75 cards and High Desert Gallery will custom frame them for silent auction. You can find all the entry info here. How ’bout getting your quilting group together to make some cards – they’re really fun!
Oh boy have I been getting email and voice mail messages about those registration forms. Fear not! They should be in the mail no later than Monday. We have sent out about 700 entry forms – over half of them for sale entries which fill very fast. You can find entry information here.
Sisters made the National Geographic Geo Tourism map – and the Quilt Show and Sisters Folk Festival are featured! check it out. That’s about it for now. Weather update for all you sunbirds – The sun is shining and we’re heading for 50 degree weather next week. Hoping to hit the (muddy) trails with the corgis! Later ~ Ann
