Letter: Success is a Team Effort


Many thanks to so many of you in the community for your praise of the Fort Verde Days Quilt show. Please also extend your thanks to the quilt show team: Sue Chester, Karen Crowder, Peg Miller, Connie Mitton, Mary Nordstrom, Vicki Norman, Jeanett Salyers, Audrey Whitman, Darlene Williams and Judy Zobel from Camp Verde, Janet Yamamoto from Cottonwood, Michaelyn Boyle and Kathy O’Connell from VOC, and Laurie Cameron from Sedona. These incredible women didn’t know each other when we started our planning last May, but have become a group of diverse and close friends over the last months.

Thank you to local Camp Verde carpenter extraordinaire, Jim Graves, who built our quilt racks and to his team of family and friends who helped set up and take down the racks with the help of the husbands of our team members and some of our quilt show entrants.  Mike Dumas, Shane Allen and Deborah Ranney from the Maintenance Department and Public Works Department of the Town of Camp Verde were so helpful and supportive of our efforts. Thanks also to Quilters Quarters, Cottonwood, and The Quilters Store, Sedona for your beautiful vendor booths, and to Eunice Hill, for her lecture and quilt appraisals.

But we could not have had such a beautiful show without the people who entrusted us with their family quilts and antique heirlooms on which to display quilts. You are the ones to thank for helping revive this show after so many years.  The Fort Verde Days Quilt Show will be a bi-annual show and we look forward to many more of you quilters and owners of wonderful quilts to display those in 2014.
