Quilt Show 2020
More to come
February 14 & 15
Bradenton Area Convention Center
                Committee Chairs Descriptions

Vendor Chair: Coordinate the mailing of vendor applications for
space and follow-up with each. Easiest to begin with those who
vended at our show in 2018…they were all happy so will probably
want to be with us again. Collect deposits and final payments from
each vendor. Follow up with Vendors for set up needs at the Show.

Publicity: Early publicity – search the internet for sites where free
listings for our Show can be added. The earlier our dates are
published, the less overlap we will have with other quilt shows.

Advertising: Research advertising costs, ad sizes and deadlines
for local, regional and national options. Decide best options with
Quilt Show Chair to stay within budget and place ads.

Opportunity Quilt Ticket Sale Chair: Coordinate the printing and
distribution to all members of at least 20 tickets to each Guild
member. We are each responsible for the sale or purchase of 20
tickets…more is totally acceptable! Coordinate volunteers to sell
tickets at the Show.

Quilt Travel Chair: Coordinate with other Guilds to attend a
meeting, show our Opportunity Quilt and sell tickets. The traveling
of our Opportunity Quilt could include placement at local shops as
well.

Basket Promenade: Inspire the membership toward the creation of
or gathering and donation of items to make wonderful baskets.
Prepare colorful numbered tickets and registration cards for ticket
sales. Set up and coordinate volunteers to sell tickets at the Show.

Consignment Sales: Create the space at the show to showcase
Members’ quilted items for sale. Coordinate volunteers to set up the
booth, sell the quilts and collect the money per the arrangements
with the member.

Silent Auction: Inspire the membership to create and donate small
quilts. Collect the items as they are completed. Display the items in
the space at the Show (hopefully many will be donated so that half
may be awarded the first day of the show!). Collect winning bids
and deliver quilts into the hands of the winners.
