It takes two long days to erect the stands, hang the quilts, and prepare the displays for the exhibition. (Not to mention the two and a half days prior for processing, judging and photography etc.). Take down takes only two hours (or less).
That's it for another year. I'm off the committee now. I've happily served for six years, but if I stayed any longer, it wouldn't be happy any more. Time to share the glory with someone else stepping forward. I look forward to enjoying the exhibition next year as a "civilian".
