Many thanks to our anonymous friend for the new banners promoting the guild's annual quilt show. We LOVE them!
The show runs in conjunction with Pacific Grove's Good Old Days festivities along Lighthouse Avenue.

2017 garnered lots of super publicity for our show. Many thanks to the local media that supports us. Check these links:
KSBW-TV included us in their newscast and also an online article. Thank you for bringing the world of quilting to your audience!
Application for 2018 quilt entries and judging are open. In order to enter quilts for display in the quilt show, you must be a member of the Monterey Peninsula Quilters Guild. Please read the entry form for the exception.
Judged Quilt Awards - Ribbons can be given in each category, and an overall Best of Show award will be chosen from the first place winners. Viewer's Choice Awards - During the show, attendees can vote for their favorite quilt. Viewer’s Choice awards are given at the May guild meeting.
It is time to start planning for our quilt show. Thank you to all volunteers that are able to return to their positions. That leaves a number of positions that need to be filled (see table below). This is a great opportunity for our new members to get involved and make new friends. Please see me at the next meeting to inquire about the open positions.
The 2018 Quilt show is on:
We will have our first Quilt Show Committee and Coordinator meeting on Wednesday, November 29 at 5:30pm at the Monterey Library.
