Raising Funds for the Utah Quilt Guild
Ever wondered how we raise funds without raising membership rates? Read on...2018 Opportunity Quilt
by Nancy Henderson
Using Lori Smith's design, Flowers from My Garden, this years opportunity quilt was hand appliquéd and hand quilted by Nancy Henderson... and it could be Yours!
Throughout the year, the Area Reps will be taking the quilt to as many Chapters as they can reach and will be selling tickets …oh, I mean candy … for the chance to win this quilt for your very own. Tickets, er Candy will also be available at the UQSM show in May and at Quilt Fest in September. Candy is $1 a piece or 6 for $5 (with one FREE ticket for each piece of candy purchased). The drawing will be held on Saturday, September 22, 2018. Support the Utah Quilt Guild buying candy and you could bring this quilt home with you!!
Activate Your Smiths Card with the Utah Quilt Guild
By Cindy Hutchison
A while back, I gave everyone the good news about Smiths Food & Drug agreeing to be a sponsor for the Utah Quilt Guild. It is now time to link your Smiths card to the Utah Quilt Guild. You need to do this on your computer and it will only take about 1 minute. By linking your Smiths card to the Guild we will receive a percentage of sales that all linked Utah Quilt Guild members spend. This does not affect your personal Smiths coupons or fuel points. We will earn rewards on almost everything you buy at Smiths. Your Area Reps have step by step instructions they will provide at your Chapter meetings, along with some easy reference handouts. In the meantime if you would like to get started here are the 3 simple steps to get your Smiths card linked to the Quilt Guild account.
