On July 8, twelve Merrimack Valley Quilters members went to the New England Quilt Guild on a tour arranged by Sue Spinelli. .They had a gallery talk and walk conducted by Curator Pam Weeks. There were two exhibits.  One Called The Quilted Canvas which features the work of Pioneering Art quilters Beth and Jeff Gutcheon and Molly Upton and Susan Hoffman. ​ The second gallery featured  an exhibit called Beyond the Border: The Migrant Quilt Project. A very timely exhibit of quilts made from the belongings left along the way by migrants from Central America seeking asylum in Texas.   The group toured the library, the museum shop and the vaults where the museum’s collection of 500 quilts is stored.   It was a wonderful morning and there is talk of arranging other tours as the exhibits change.
