Our Quilt will be at the New England Quilt Museum

Posted on Updated on

Our 2019 raffle quilt will be displayed at the New England Quilt Museum on August 17th from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. As a contributing guild, we are allowed to display our quilt and sell raffle tickets at the museum. We chose this date because the Celebration of Quilts will be on display in the main gallery. These are the quilts submitted by all the guilds who support the museum.

Louise Robitaille’s “Spring Bouquet” which was Best of Show from our last year’s quilt show will represent Merrimack Valley Quilters. Betty Hastings “Village” quilt will represent Essex County Needlecraft Guild. There will also be a quilt from Hannah Dustin. 

Visitors to the museum can vote for their favorite. The guild that receives the most votes will be allowed to hang an exhibit of quilts in the classroom in the following year.

Betty Hastings, Judy Naylor, and our guild rep to the museum, Diane Kelley, will sit at the raffle table through the day, but you are all invited to attend on that day or any other day while the Celebration of Quilts is up.

Parking on Saturday is behind the museum. The banks are closed.

Or you can park at the lot on Dutton Street (the National Parks lot.) Both are free while being renovated.

Ready for a road trip anyone?

The Quilt Show Needs You!

Posted on Updated on

As some of you may have heard, this is Carrie Zizza’s last year in the judging room and doing quilt show set up.  She will be taking over this task for the Vermont Quilt Show.  Congratulations Carrie! 

This means we have an opening that is vital to our show!  I would like two volunteers.  One to run the judging room; the other to take care of set up and take down of the quilts.  We need two people ASAP so that they can shadow Carrie this year as she does that thing she does so well.  It is imperative that we fill these positions.  Without it we have no show. 

Please contact me or Diane Kelly if your interested.
