We wish to thank Pat and Peter Masley woodchuc@wcta.net for their work in compiling this information for YOU. Without their work we would be a good month getting this information to you. They also compiled all this information for the original MQS program(s) for its first three years of showcases. The showcase community in general owes these two a big THANK YOU for three years of dedicated work. Thank you, Pat and Peter.

We also want to thank George Goumas ggoumas@earthlink.net for his work in taking all these wonderful photographs. He did a fantastic job as you will see. You can see more of George's photography of Marge's quilting on their web site http://home.earthlink.net/~ggoumas We also want to thank George for his video program at the Awards Banquet the last night of the Showcase. All the Award winning quilts had their photos flashed on the screen as the awards were presented. Now YOU get to see them in the comfort of your home or studio.

If and/or when you find errors to this web page, PLEASE take the time to email us.   Jeff and Jackie
