Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show Volunteer Appreciation

It is a hard fact that the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show would not happen without it's volunteers.  And, last night those volunteers were appreciated with a wonderful party at Black Butte Ranch.  Everyone was a winner, good eats, good company and a thank you gift for everyone.  There were 1300 quilts on Quilt Show day...and many more added to the Save It For Sunday Show.  Although this was Ann's last quilt show as Director she has helped an organization which will successfully move forward.  The celebration last night was not only a thank you for whatever time people could donate but a thank you from the Volunteers to Ann for her joyful leadership.
Here are the Quilt Shows point guards, Jamie, Kathy, Ann and Tammy!

The slide show today has a mixture of quilts and the party...which you can attend next year if you donate some time to the numerous tasks that it takes to pull off the show.  I can tell you there is something wonderful that happens to you on quilt show day when you are walking around and you know...that you were part of the wheel that helped bring the largest outdoor Quilt Show to life! 
Have a great weekend and we'll see ya back here on Monday!

  1. I just discovered your blog! Thanks for the Sisters coverage, I missed the show this year. Told my husband this morning I wanted to move us and other family to Sisters. Love the area! I see you went to school at UCSB! We lived in Goleta for over 30 years until we moved to Santa Ynez 10 years ago. I am looking forward to following your blog! -Bonnie

  2. So true, so many people help out at the shows and for free, they deserve a big hand for all the work they do.


  3. Wow, looks like a lovely day to celebrate with hard working volunteers.

    Lovely quilts. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Looks like a wonderful, well-run event and the town and area is gorgeous! I've heard of the show before but really never appreciated it's scope before seeing all your photos. Attending this show is now on my bucket list! ~Roberta

  5. It seems like the Sister outdoor quilt show went very smoothly. I agree with you though in that events such as this one cannot happen if not for all the volunteers. It is amazing that there would be as many as 1300 quilts on display. The photos are lovely and the quilt is the main attraction.
