Exhibition 2011

From Helen: Congratulations to everyone for all the beautiful quilts displayed at our exhibition. We exhibited a record total of 287 quilts from 53 exhibitors. That does not include the guest judge and guest group exhibits. We had lots of positive feedback from our visitors.We raised nearly $880 for the 3 charities in our Choose a Charity quilt auction. Of the 35 quilts presented we sold 22. Well done, and thanks to all who supported this project.

Congratulations also to all the ribbon winners and those who sold some of their pieces.
