Fall Festival at Centennial Barn

On Sunday, October 16, CMQG will have a booth at the Fall Festival at the Centennial Barn. We're using this fun opportunity to raise some funds and do a little publicizing of our guild. Victoria and I are organizing this event and we're so excited to put together a great display of goods and crafty/quilty stuff for our booth.

~We're asking that everyone donate at least one item. Please bring items to our monthly meeting on the 12th.~

Items we'd love to sell handmade from cotton or wool:
Childrens' clothing, toys and accessories
Table runners or placemats
Scarves and  hair accessories
Mug Rugs
Bags and totes

Items we'd love to sell that we would categorize as "supplies": 
Fat quarters or half yards 
Scrap bags of good-quality fabric {pieces that are at least 4"x4"}
Thread and hand-quilting thread
Rulers, templates or patterns

This is a great opportunity to hook people in to our modern quilting group, so while we're grateful for anything you donate, please be mindful that we are trying to convey a modern feel to our goods and supplies.

If you are interested in selling a quilt on commission in the booth, please let us know.

Lastly, we need a few people to work the booth. Hours for the festival are 12pm-4pm and it would be great if at least 6 of us can take shifts to help with set-up, working our booth and takedown. I'll be sending out an email to ask for volunteers.

If you have any other ideas for this fun event - let us know!
