Jan McQueen suggested doing a basket drawing instead of a treasure hunt this year. Her other guild does this for their guild’s quilt show. Each basket includes new donated items which are raffled off each day of the show. Some of us remember Mid-Valley Quilt Guild had baskets at their shows in the past.
Jean Amundson will update publicity contacts.
Kathleen asked about availability and location of loading carts for vendors to use Thursday and Saturday. The recreation center has some and needs a few days to gather them for our use. Some vendors have their own.
