Our board has 26 positions, consisting of five elected officers and others held by co-chairs who serve a two-year term (or longer). We usually have over 500 members.
We hold quarterly meetings each January, April, July and September at Center Place in Spokane Valley. During our quarterly meetings, WSQ-SC features nationally and regionally recognized quilt related speakers.
In addition to our speakers, our Newsletter Committee publishes a large quarterly newsletter highlighting upcoming events and activities. We feature a 1,000+ book and magazine library for our members' use.
WSQ-SC's major event is the annual Quilt Show. The show runs 3 consecutive days the 3rd week in October. The show attracts about 4000 attendees, features over 50 vendors, and exhibits about 500 quilts.
Some 30 members coordinate the efforts of over 300 volunteers for the show. Recruiting volunteers for the Quilt Show and other events remains a continuing challenge.
In addition to the Quilt Show, other fund raising events include our 'Raffle Quilt'. The quilt is two years in the making == our members develop, create and sell raffle tickets throughout the year.
Each year - WSQ-SC events include the annual Yard Sale, quarterly Quilting Bees, and several bus trips to quilts shows around the region. Charity Central coordinates the making and giving of quilts to local charities.Every year several hundred quilts, made by members, are donated to various charitable organizations.
