Dear Fellow Quilters -
As you may or may not know, I am about to have a baby any day. To add more irons to the fire, I am also organizing the Friendship Display of Quilts on October 6th, 2007. I desperately need your help and request that you call or attend this weeks organizational meeting. Any help you are willing to provide will be greatly appreciated - from co-chair, setup, cleanup, handling raffles, turning quilts, etc. We will have a list of needs - voluneer as little or as much as you choose.
There will be vendor booths as well as several charity booths raising money for local causes. Additionally, net proceeds generated from the Display of Quilts will be donated to the Burkburnett Boys and Girls Club.

In the coming weeks you can find more information at this website: http://www.quiltshow.stitchingdepot.com/

I hope you will find it in your heart to donate your time, in which we all hope will become the 1st Annual Friendship Display of Quilts. Please join us!

I placed an article in this weeks Burkburnett Informer Star, but in case you missed it I'd like to pass that information on to you:

The City of Burkburnett, Texas is celebrating its centennial. Throughout the year there have been many events to recognize this milestone in history. On Saturday, October 6, 2007 the City will host its 7th Annual Friendship Festival. This event began in 2001 and has been growing every year, with vendor booths, food and entertainment. Last year's attendance topped 3,000 people.

Friendship Display of Quilts will be hosted by the Quilters of Burkburnett, at the Burkburnett Community Center Building. This will be a non-judged show with vendor booths and will coincide with the Friendship Festival.

Please pass this email along to anyone you feel may be interested

Thank you, Kimberly
