Last call for Carrie Zizza’s class which has been changed to Saturday, February 16th due to a scheduling conflict. Please let me know ASAP if you want to attend “You can have your quilt sandwich and finish it too”. West Church in Haverhill – Vestry – from 10 to 4. Cost is $10 for members and we have 3 seats left.
David Sirota’s workshop is almost full for March – paper pieced storm at sea – the no-tears method. Please contact me ASAP if you want to attend – 3 seats left. $25 for members. West Church in Haverhill – Vestry – from 9:30 to 3:30.
Some big DATE CHANGES: Linda Hahn, New York Beauty Simplified, is coming on April 18th for the lecture and April 20th for the workshop. It’s Easter weekend!!!! Saturday may be a tough day for a workshop so I am moving it to Friday, April 19th. We are paying her well to be here from Florida and if no-one is interested in the workshop because of the holiday, I will cancel it. We only have 4 signed up right now and the workshop is too expensive if we don’t have a bigger class. Contact me by February 1st if you would like to sign up.
Allison Wilbur is with us in May presenting a lecture on the quilts of Japan and a workshop on hand and machine Sashiko. She is lecturing May 23rd and the workshop is scheduled for Saturday, May 25th. The workshop date remains tentative since it is Memorial Day weekend. Please let me know by February 1st if you plan on attending and whether Friday or Saturday is better for you. I will accommodate as many as I can. Again, I will cancel if we don’t have enough interest because of the holiday since we are also paying good monies for her to travel and lodge here as well. You can reach me on the email or phone listed above. Thank you for your understanding.
HEADS UP: I spoke with Edyta Sitar who will be here in April 2020. Her workshop fee will be $80 for members – $40 to teach and $40 for her kit. Non-member total fee will be $90. If we have an overwhelming response, I will request 2 workshops. The rest of the information is pending her contract this summer, including the workshop.

We were excited to see so many interested parties for the 2019 quilt show challenge. It is an applique (machine or hand) project which features the Rose of Sharon as the subject of the challenge. It can be executed anyway in a 24×24 inch piece and must use (somewhere in the quilt) the fabric which we have chosen. I have two pieces left so if interested please contact me at email@example.com for the fabric and the directions for the challenge.
Thank you all for your participation,
Layne Rando and Marianne Karp
