“Friendraiser Coordinator” aka Kathy, announces new membership program
I’ve volunteered for the Show for more than 16 years as a way to support my hobby – actually, more than a hobby – one of my passions – quilting. Six months ago I was given a great opportunity – join Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show as their Friendraiser. What does that mean? It’s an accurate description of what a fundraiser does.
The first order of business for me – come up with an innovative membership program. Both the Board and Executive Director Ann Richardson push the envelop in advancing the mission of SOQS and the new member program is no exception.
I’m excited to announce the new member program was launched this week. Membership is a win, win, win – for SOQS, members and quilt related businesses partnering with us. There is a range of member benefits but the most unique addition is the gift of inspiration and creativity. How do we achieve giving these intangibles that are so important to quilters? By providing our members with free admission to thirty Quilt Museums, Shows and Shops in seven states. How did we do this? By building partnerships that benefit all of us. Keep in mind, the “grass doesn’t grow under our feet” here at SOQS, so we continue to build partnerships expanding the list of Member Program Partners.
Donors I’ve spoken with the past few months have expressed positive feedback about the direction of the member program. I encourage you to check out the new Friend of the Show member program on our website. You can sign up as a member on the site or join the crowd on quilt show day at the Friend of the Show booth behind the Stitchin’ Post.
