 Hello Everyone!
PIQF (Pacific International Quilt Festival) is coming up quickly – October 15-18th at the Santa Clara County Convention Center.  It runs from 9-6 Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, and from 9-3 on Sunday. 
As you all hopefully know, we are displaying our Opportunity Quilt at PIQF and are trying to raise money for the guild by selling tickets, so we need people to (wo)man the opportunity quilt booth.  Also, we are doing some white gloving for PIQF itself, so we need volunteers for that portion as well.  Every slot is a 2 hour shift, and the more you volunteer, the more chance you get of winning a fabulous PRIZE (or collection of prizes) from the BAMQG!
We still need volunteers at the following times and in the following roles (especially Thursday and Sunday!):
White Gloving:
Sunday, 10/18, shifts from 9-11, 11-1, 1-3
Opportunity Quilt Booth:
Thursday 10/15:  2-4pm, 4-6pm
Friday 10/16:  2-4pm
Saturday 10/17: 10am-noon, 2-4pm
Sunday 10/18:  9-11am
If you can volunteer for any of these shifts, please email Amanda or leave a comment here. Members can sign up on the ning forum.
Thanks so much – every shift helps! And every shift gives you a better chance at winning some great prizes!!
