Since the Guild began sixteen years ago, we have hosted a biennial quilt show at Eagle Ridge Community Centre in Langford. The purpose of the quilt show is to showcase our Guild and the talents of the guild to our community and beyond.
We start each quilt show with a Gala. The day of the set up, we have an invitation only gala evening with refreshments and live music. The idea is for people to enjoy a less crowded, more intimate quilt show before the crowds rush in the next day. The vendors are open and the Guild hosts a boutique of handcrafted and quilted items for shopping pleasure.
Then the doors open for a two day quilt show. We usually have about 200 quilts on display, with a wide variety of categories including large, and medium quilts, and small/wallhangings, Art quilts. Wearables. A sponsored Youth category and our new but popular UFO category (members must commit to finishing a project or two that have been languishing for sometime.
We normally have a merchant mall of about 25-30 vendors. A Demonstrations area. Guild Challenges. Silent auction. Quilt Raffle. Guild Boutique. A Rest Area. Voting for Viewer's Choice on the Gala night and the first day of the quilt show by the public, and voting by category by the Guild members.
