NEORQC Meeting for March 2005
The Ohio LongArm Quilters will be hosting the meeting, which will be held at 10am on March 5, 2005,
at Cloverleaf High School in Lodi, Ohio. Our monthly meeting will immediately follow.
We should have as many members at the meeting as possible, arriving by 9:30am in order to help
with setting up the area. The food will be 'pot luck' - members of our group will provide breakfast
type foods and others attending the meeting will be asked to provide lunch type dishes.
We discussed ideas for door prizes and raffle items - we can determine the specific details at future
meetings. We may want to organize a group quilt that we can raffle to make money for our group.
Hosting a quilt show
Linda Miller indicated that the Quail Hollow state park may not be a suitable location for a quilt show.
There are restrictions on how we can charge visitors who attend the show as well as some other
negative issues. There is another location that would be ideal - an event center - that is clean and
spacious, but quite expensive. Linda will do some more research to see what other locations may be
Linda also contacted someone in another guild who is responsible for their quilt show displays racks.
When that person replies to Linda, she will advise the group on their availability and cost to rent.
Mary Zeitz spoke with the woman from the North Coast Needlers Quilt Guild who organizes their
impressive quilt show and she was agreeable to attending one of our meetings to discuss the issues
involved with putting on such an event. Mary will pursue this for a future meeting.
Since none of our members have ever been directly involved with organizing a quilt show, we
discussed the idea of planning a full-fledged show sometime in 2006 and doing a smaller type show
in 2005. This could be a showing of quilts from our members only - we should have PLENTY of quilts
among us. We can also do some raffle items and invite vendors to sell their wares. This would give
us some experience so that we can do a great show in 2006.
Regardless of the size of the endeavor we decide to tackle, we will need lots of participation from our
members to make it successful.

After the meeting, several of us ventured out to the new quilt shop in Canton called Angelic's, A
Quilter's Haven in the Southgate Shopping Center. It's quite a nice shop and the people are very
