A Message from Cory Allender, the Chair of Quilt Las Vegas 2020
Quilt Las Vegas 2020 is the 30th show mounted by Desert Quilters of Nevada and it seems auspicious that it will be held in a new facility. After almost 20 years in the Henderson Convention Center, Quilt Las Vegas begins its run in the Henderson Multigenerational Center. The new space, I believe, will be a good venue for this show and many more to come.
The show theme, “Pearls of the Desert”, was a collaborative effort by the Desert Quilters of Nevada Board. A pearl is the stone for a 30th anniversary, resulting in a fitting theme for the 30th show and much better than my idea of fireworks.
In advance, I would like to thank the show committee and all of the volunteers who make a Quilt Las Vegas show a reality. This show, in new facility, requires extra effort in figuring out how to make the best use of space and showcase the entries. What I see from everyone involved is enthusiasm and for that, I am grateful. If, by chance, you read this before the show, please consider volunteering. I promise you will not regret it.
