Will the Libby Auction be webcast, or must one attend in person to bid on items?

We will not webcast any events at this year’s QuiltWeek® event. We hope you will be able to join us. Sylvia Thomas, AQS Office Administrator

Lighthouse Quilt Guild will be having our annual show in Grand Haven, Michigan next weekend. Many of our members and guests will also be at the AQS show in Grand Rapids. We would be happy to post a flyer or have handouts at our show to advertise the auction. Let me know if we can help. Also, if you need help with the auction, I could get some people to help.

Thanks, Kathy. Contact Bonnie Browning,, to find out how you can help as a volunteer.
