Please take this opportunity to recycle your stash and make room for new projects! And, if you know any non-member quilters that would like to make fabric donations (perhaps they are moving?), please mention our auction to them. We are available to meet people at the Storage Unit and/or come to your homes for pick ups.
We would like donations of quilting cotton fabric, unfinished quilt projects, quilting supplies, embroidery, knitting, vintage sewing items and quilting books newer than 2015 (no magazines, please), and any other items you think would be of interest to your fellow quilters.
Thank you all in advance for your contribution to another successful auction!

Congratulations to Stacey Caruso, Sue Spinelli, the committee members and all the volunteers for a successful UFO Auction. There were lots of donated items to be had. Members and guests were bidding often and generously. The final numbers are not in yet, but the preliminary numbers appear to be very good. We will have the final numbers at the March meeting. I hope everyone had an opportunity to purchase a new treasure. I know I did! Thanks, again, to the entire UFO Auction team on a job very well done!
Liz Swan, President
SORTING donations – Saturday, Feb 16
First Church of Christ
10 Church Street
We are also accepting donations at this time.
SET UP auction – Thursday, Feb 21
Guild Meeting, Norther Essex Community College

Hope you can join us!
Carrie Zizza’s workshop has been changed FROM Saturday, February 23rd TO Saturday, February 16th from 9:30 to 3:30 due to a scheduling conflict on her end. The location will be announced at the January meeting. If anyone is interested, please email me NOW since we will be so close to the workshop by our January meeting. The location I choose is dependent on the number of people signed up! Remember – this fabulous workshop – “You can have your quilt sandwich and finish it too” – is only $10 for members. It’s a wonderful opportunity to learn from a master machine quilter.
For the December MVQ guild meeting, you were given a button to make something that fits into a brown lunch bag. This button will represent a color you have to use in the item you make. If possible, use the button somewhere, but if you can’t, please safety pin it to the back of the item so the person can see what color you had to work with. And, if you have lost your button, find another, make something to swap, and bring it with you to the Pot Luck Dinner December 6th. Be creative! Some ideas from last year include pincushions, needle cases, aprons, small wall hangings, holiday ornaments, wool items, mug rugs, placemat, and the list goes on. Last year we probably had 95 % participation and the creativity was awesome. Let’s aim for 100 %!
