With the commitment of time from members, our raffle quilt has had a successful summer.
YANKEE HOMECOMING (July 31st)
Liz and John Swan took charge of set up. Time at the table was shared by Joanne Giblin, Louise Robitaille, Jamie Ruh, Barbara Bell, Margaret Tipton, Deb Sancranti, Liz Swan, and Brenda Haskell. John Swan returned at the end of the day and Liz and John took the display away. The results of these labors brought in $252 for the guild.
MANCUSO WORLD QUILT FESTIVAL (August 16, 17, and 18)
More days and more people needed. On Wednesday, Betty Hastings took the quilt up to Manchester and set it up for the show.
On Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, sitters at the table included:
Ann Stobbs Mary Stobbs Lin Caiado Bev Valle
Marianne Karp Mary Wilkes Liz Swan Deb Sancrati
Brenda Haskell Ruth Caisse Linda Lydecker Heather Shields
Judy Naylor Maggie Rogers
White Glovers included:
Barbara Black Diana Dow Ruth Martineau
Shelia Ramsden Linda Lydecker
Thanks to this group who brought in $355 for the guild. And a very special thank you to Carol Sullivan and Cathy Harnish for going above and beyond. Our quilt was shown on a Mancuso rack instead of our own. To take it down required standing on chairs. Carol and Cathy left their spot at the Hannah Dustin table and gave Maggie and Judy an appreciated hand.
