​2022 GIFG Show Notes
Our show for 2022 is named Picking up the Threads
I can’t give any concrete information about all of the important dates right now but our show will be in February.
Everything should be in place by this fall and, as in prior shows, I will send out a detailed schedule and entry forms to all members.
Entry forms will be sent out with the December newsletter.
We will have a fashion show with Linda Olsen and Jeanne Cieszeski as the co-chairs
We will not have baskets.
We will have a quilt to raffle from Janie Pritchard.
Group projects are encouraged but must be a reasonable size.
All you need to think about for now is working on items you plan to enter in the show. You have about 100 days to complete your entries. You may enter as many items as you want as long as they have not been in a prior GIFG Show.
I am glad to answer any questions you have. Email me at or text me at 912-571-8722.

2022 GIFG Show Chair

GIFG Fashion Show News
We are happy to announce that we are hosting a Fashion Show as part of the GIFG Show. It will be held on Opening Night which is Friday, February 4, 2022. So get your garments and accessories ready! Anything that has-n’t been shown in a prior GIFG Show is eligible. Items that have been shown at Guild meetings are eligible as well. In the coming months we’ll be sharing more details and asking for a few volunteers to help with photos and backstage. Fashion Show co-chairs are Linda Olsen and Jeanne Cieszeski.​​​​
