About 4 years ago, it was changed from the print of 4 hands to a stylized version of the Las Vegas skyline. This year, members decided it was time to make another change. A contest was held and original designs were submitted for voting.
Sharon Takahashi, membership/jury coordinator and Merriam Olds, secretary were the administrators for the contest.
A total of 9 designs were submitted to Sharon and Merriam. As they were received, each one was numbered and mounted on colored paper. They in turn e-mailed them to members for voting on line and also displayed them at the June meeting. The name of the person(s) who sent in a logo was kept secret.When all the votes were tallied, the logo submitted by Teri Smith, Kristin Petronek’s sister, won the competition. Kristin is another one of our membership/jury coordinators. Teri’s design included a tapesty in the shape of the State of Nevada, a threaded sewing needle embroidering “The Las Vegas Crafters Guild” on to the tapestry, a spool of thread and a pair of scissors.
