Quilter of the Year- Suzi Calderwood

Posted on Updated on

Thank you all so much for the Quilter of the Year award. I am still in awe and shock that I received this. My husband sent an email to one and all, even his facebook friends. I of course will probably not tell anyone but he will tell everyone. Again thank you everyone for the honor.

Raffle Quilt – Thank You

Posted on

This is absolutely the best quilt! Thank you to all who put in countless hours making it, quilting it, sitting with it at all the shows and then drawing my name. Every time I walk into my bedroom, I marvel at the beauty of it, the amount of work that went into it and the number of fabrics. Gotta love all those Oriental fabrics. It’s true, I am sleeping better.

30th Anniversary Dinner

Posted on

The following was submitted by Gail Wozniak.

Thursday, May 6th over 70 women gathered at Maria’s Family Restaurant in Haverhill to celebrate in style, the 30th anniversary of MVQ.  We were thrilled to have in attendance Pat Mamacos and Lois Schofield, two of the founding mothers of the guild whose vision and dream of a quilt group for women who love the art of quilting has forged on for thirty years.  Flowers were presented to these ladies as well as a plant to Pat Beevers,  who although not a Founding Mother, joined the group a month or so into existence.  She has been a member all these years and our longest continuing member.  It was great to see that many members have been  members for over twenty years as we stood to show our years of membership in the guild.      Over thirty raffle prizes were won by guests that evening.  I think many long time members will attest to what a great group of members we are with all sorts of varying talents in the group and the love of the art of quilting has kept us woven together all these years.  I know there are many splinter groups from this large group, some new and just formed and others still meeting weekly after twenty five plus years.   And on to number 35!!!

The following is an E-mail sent from Carol Robinson’s daughter.

I am sad to report that Dad passed away last night.  He took a turn for the worse yesterday and was brought to the hospital;  Diane, Mom, Dave and I were at his side as he took his last few breaths;  we just can’t imagine life without him.  Mom is holding up quite well;  Deb caught a late flight out of Seattle and arrived in NH this morning – it is so good to be together at this time.

We have made arrangements to celebrate his life and visit with friends and family, as follows:

Visiting hours at Remick-& Gendron Funeral Home will be Thursday May 6th from 2 – 4 pm and 6 – 8 pm;

There will be a mass at St. Theresa Church in Rye Beach, on Friday May 7th at 10 a.m.

If you can’t make it please don’t feel badly – we appreciate all your love, support and prayers!
