Good Night, Quilt Show 2022.

First and foremost, a sincere thank you to all our members who volunteered their time and talents to bring together the 2022 Quilt Show: Our Committee Chair people who spent time organizing, telephoning, recruiting, sharing ideas to develop and promote the show: Members brought their spouses, grandchildren, sisters and friends to assemble the finale of a year’s work:
Boutique, admissions, hospitality volunteers who showed exceptional
patience and good humor throughout. You make Lighthouse the
exceptional organization that it is.
Over five hundred people visited our Show. They saw a wide variety of quilt styles, colors and displays of exceptional skills. They saw heartfelt tributes to our members who have passed and our efforts to meet the community’s needs through Lighthouse’s outreach programs and they saw how the craft of quilting brings challenge, camaraderie and friendship to its members.

 

As with most things, some changes, workarounds and new ideas should be part of 2023’s plans, but that said, the 2022 Lighthouse Quilt Show was outstanding! Take a moment to look at the Special Quilt Show newsletter that shares the weekend’s events, stories shared by ribbon winners and much more.
The final financial outcome will be reported at the October meeting.
