2019 Hands of Friendship Quilt Show — Behind the Scenes

So much goes into putting on a quilt show. From checking in the quilts on Friday morning to checking out the quilts on Saturday afternoon, there are many things behind the scenes that need to be done. It takes a team of people to put on the show.

First, the quilts are checked in and sorted into divisions and tagged. At the same time the quilts are being checked in, the vendor spaces and the layout of the show floor are being marked. The framework that hold the quilts is then constructed and the background fabric hung. Hangers get clipped onto the quilts and the quilts are hung by category. Quilts must be adjusted, and readjusted, then the stories pinned on.

Next, the vendors begin to assemble their booths and bring in their precious wares. The Bed Turning display begins to take shape and background quilts are hung and the bed is “made”.

The demonstration area is set up and readied. Signs are put out around town and inside the building. “Nana’s Second Thoughts” is unpacked and prepared, and everything on the show floor is checked over to make sure it is ready to go.

The raffle quilt area and welcome tables are also readied. The kitchen crew is busy gathering food and preparing to feed the workers and vendors. And last-minute touches are made on the Veterans display and the pop-up quilt show on the lawn .

Below are some of the pictures that were taken as the show was set up and shortly after everything was taken down. You’ll also see some of the vendors’ booths and the Bed Turning. The pop-up quilt show is in another post.

2019 Hands of Friendship Quilt Show — Pop-Up Quilt Show

What’s a “Pop-Up Quilt Show”, you ask? Well, it’s a quilt show that is totally unexpected.

We gathered up quite a few double-knit quilts from members and friends and lined the walkway with colorful fun! So unexpected!! Guests and members loved the display. It was a cheerful, happy way to bring guests into the building. And when the weather looked like rain, we brought them inside and covered the tables with them.

It was a fun way to start the show!
