Thanks to all those folks who befriended the show as a member during the fun filled week of quilting in Sisters – July 8th – 15th.  I enjoyed meeting and greeting so many new faces as I talked about the benefits of membership throughout the week.  Thanks to all those folks who took the time to listen!

During Show Day afternoon I planned a little time off from my duties at the Information Booth to enjoy the quilts and take a few photos.   The next day one viewer commented to me – one minute the town was filled with colorful quilts and the next moment they were gone.  The Quilt Rescue Team and many other volunteers implemented our emergency plan and it worked great. BUT, Mother Nature ending the Show 2 ½ hours early did reduce our income for the Show by about $15,000 (quilts sales and raffle ticket sales).

If Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show (SOQS) is an important event for you and others you know, think about showing your support with a membership.  During a quiet moment read through the member brochure you received during your visit or go to our website under the Support button and refer to Friend of the Show.  Membership to SOQS — a non-profit — is just one of the income sources that contributes toward the $155,000+ price tag for the largest outdoor quilt show in the world.

Stay on the sunny side of life – especially during an outdoor quilt show!!!
