Dear Mimram Members,

this is what we need for our exhibition this year...

Quilts!

The quilts will be grouped into sections, as below, so this should give you an idea of what we want to exhibit. Please look at the quilts you have made in the last couple of years (that have not been exhibited anywhere) as we need a good mixture to make our exhibition.

·         Traditional Quilts. Any size (eg. bed size quilts / lap quilts / wall hangings etc.) Traditional quilts can be machine pieced but any quilting or applique must be worked by hand

·         Sampler quilts / Baby Jane style quilts

·         Baby quilts / cot quilts / children's quilts

·         Jellyroll / Charm pack quilts

·         Quilts / wall hangings that you have made at workshops

·         “Reflections of India” quilt or wall-hanging competition... see below for details

·         “Celebration” Journal quilts competition… see below for details

·         Any other quilts / wall hangings

·         Cushions and 3D objects

Charity Quilt Raffle

Thanks to all of the Dresden plates you have made, we will have 2 quilts to raffle.

Peg Bag Raffle!

We would like 16 peg bags made to raffle. Visitors of the exhibition will buy a raffle ticket and put it in the pocket of the peg bag that they would like to win. If you would like to make a peg bag for this, please let us know as we only need 16!

Sales Table

If you would like to sell any of your hand-made products (eg. bags, book covers, pin cushions, quilts, sewn cards, etc...) we ask for a donation of 10% to go to Mimram, the rest of the money you keep! We need members to “man” the stall over the 2 days so if you are selling items could you please offer an hour or two of your service, as some items have gone missing in the past.

Deadlines

All quilts/sale items to be delivered to the community centre on Friday 17th March 2017.

Journal quilts to be sent/handed to Michele Moody (Clark) by 1st March.

All quilts must be labelled and have a 4” hanging sleeve on the back. (Journal quilts don't need hanging sleeves, just labelled!) We will demonstrate this in January at our four corners.

If you have any queries about any of the above, please ask a committee member at the Mimram meetings.

If anything is unclear, please let us know.

Happy sewing!
