Dear Quilt Friends,

In 2009 The Quilters Hall of Fame turns 30 and Marie Webster turns 150 years old. What better time for a birthday party! We invite you to throw a TQHF/Marie Webster Birthday Party in honor of one or both of these auspicious events and to help raise funds for TQHF at the same time, if you like.

Ask your local Quilt Shop to order the new Windham Fabrics Marie Webster-inspired line! Then team up with your quilt shop to hold a Marie Webster/TQHF Fund Raiser Birthday Party. (See #7 below.) To see the whole new line of Marie Webster inspired fabrics by Windham Fabrics, click here.

But Marie Webster is not your only choice! You may choose a to salute another Honoree for a TQHF Birthday salutes all Honorees!

HOW TO PARTICIPATE: First - Email us your intention to throw a TQHF Birthday Party Fundraiser. Then plan a party with your guild or with your Bee.

Or maybe you would just like to do your own thing with a select group of friends because you love to celebrate special events together! Or really think outside the box and throw a party for a local scout group or a party about women's history at a local high school and feature Marie Webster and quilting!

FILM YOUR PARTY! Why not film your party and put it on You Tube to share with other quilters and TQHF party-goers around the world! And let us know when you post your party to ! ALSO, any group that holds a TQHF Birthday Party that raises money and sends us the 2 photos of their party will get their party's photo on the TQHF BLOG.

WHAT’S A PARTY WITHOUT GIFTS! ANYONE who participates in a Marie Webster/TQHF Birthday Party that raises funds for TQHF will receive a 50%-off coupon for the TQHF Honoree book, which normally sells for $35.00, so make sure we have the names of those who attend your party!

PRIZES: Your TQHF Party has two chances to win a very special prize—the FIRST PRIZE goes to the party that raises the most funds. A SPECIAL PRIZE will also go to the Party the judges deem the most creative in addition to raising money. Also, your story and photo of each winning party will appear in the TQHF Fall/Winter newsletter.

Remember, E-MAIL your Party Plans and we’ll start listing them on the Blog! Meanwhile, share the TQHF Birthday Party news! Pass the Blog link to all those who love quilts and have them Email us! Help us get as many people celebrating as possible and raising funds to help us maintain the Honoree Collection and repair the front pillars of the Marie Webster House!

Review the list of suggestions in the post below and then come join the fun and help TQHF at the same time! Together we’ll give TQHF and Marie Webster a birthday to remember!

Keep those needles flying!
