Show Information:

All CQAFA members are strongly encouraged to exhibit their art at this show.  The Nature Center prefers nature as the subject but also accepts other themes as well. Exhibits can be an older fiber art piece, but must never have been displayed in the past at the Nature Center.  You may display as many fiber art pieces as you wish. (Note that we will be able to display 1 large quilt in the back of the room which can or cannot be for sale.)  Pieces may be submitted even if you are unable to attend. If you cannot get to the October CQAFA meeting, please contact Barb Stewart for other ways your work can be delivered for the show.


Members who have an art piece in the Nature Center Show may also put items for sale into the Boutique.  Note that the Nature Center commission on these works will be 30%.  Your boutique items should reflect your artistic style; they can be totally different from the work you are showing.  Prices must be under $115.

Please Volunteer to Help!!

All Members of CQAFA are asked to sign up as volunteers for the Nature Center show.  There are many ways to volunteer, including set up, take down, and staffing the show all three days (front desk, white glove, demonstrations), as well as help in distributing publicity postcards and posters.  Contact Judy Shaffer to sign up to help with staffing the show.  And postcards/posters will be distributed at the September 9 CQAFA meeting - we'll need help in getting them to venues all over town.
