Every other year, Quilters By the Sea (QBS) hosts a quilt show featuring members’
work.  This show is our major fundraiser which covers some of our operating costs
and allows us to purchase materials to make quilts for local charities.  Last year we
made and donated over 400 quilts!

Over 200 never-shown-before traditional and modern quilts will be shown including
special challenge quilts. There will be a Needle Arts Boutique, Quilt Sale Room,
themed Raffle Baskets, and several wonderful vendors. Activities include Bed
Turnings, door prizes and a Jelly Roll Race.

materials (fabric and batting) for quilts for local charities.  Last year we made and
donated over 400 quilts!

We would like you to advertise in our Quilt Show Program.  Our rates are quite
reasonable!

Why is this good for you?  We had over 700 visitors during our show; 700+ guests
who continually referred to the program for quilt information.  They could be
looking at your advertising!

Why for us?  The less we spend on the show, the more we make; the more we
make, the more support for our charities.  Quilters By the Sea’s donations to
charities exceeded $43,000 last year!
