Two Members Honored

Honorary Members Selected

The 2024 inductees into GVQC Honorary Member status were Vicki Coykendall and Peggy Braitsch.

Choosing candidates for this award is a tough decision.  They must be members continuously for 10 years, be 65 years of age, and have contributed significant service to GVQC.  Both Vicki and Peggy have worn many "hats" at GVQC volunteering in a number of capacities and given much time to the success and growth of the club.

Genesee Valley QuiltFest Huge Success

Outstanding Quilts, Stellar Attendance

At the June meeting, it was reported that 2024 QuiltFest, May 17-19, was a huge success.  Carol Manning, president, reported the that the club made money that will go toward speakers and expenses the next two years, that when the winning ticket was pulled at the end of the show for the opportunity quilt,  all of the 5,000 tickets printed except 28 had been sold, and that the gift gallery sold nearly everything with very little carry over.  Half of the raffle money is being donated to a youth program.

114 members entered a total of 273 quilts in the member only peer judging category.  The professionally judged entries were 45% GVQC members and 55% non-member entries.  Classes were attended by 58 members and 43 non-members.

It was announced that the same show committee will serve to coordinate the next show in 2026.  They are looking for volunteers to work along side planning this show and to take the reigns for the 2028 show. 

Congratulations Donna Schagle winning Viewer's Choice with her wool applique, "Around the Garden Party."
