Kudos for our “new space”

Posted on Updated on

The board had their meeting this month at the new meeting space so we could all “scope it out”.   Here

a few:

Place sparkles so clean.  Easy to park.  Campus well lit. Easy access into our meeting space.  Nice comfortable chairs.

New location for monthly meetings- starting in December!!!!!

Posted on Updated on

Hi,

We have a new place for our meetings! Beginning with our December meeting we will be in our new location in the Technology Center at Northern Essex Community College in Haverhill. This new location is handicap accessible and it has a sound system! YEAH!!!

I want to thank Gail Wozniak and Lyn Grenier for their hard work in finding a new location! I think they called about 50 places and we will all benefit from their wonderful efforts! The goal was to find a spot that would be accessible,comfortable, affordable, and in a convenient location. They succeeded!

We will have our September and October meeting in our normal Plaistow location as the college was already booked for those days. I will provide everyone with directions and parking info. at the fall meetings. Please share this great news with others as it may attract new members too!

I hope you’re having a lovely summer! See you in September!

About 20 members of MVQ gathered at the Franciscan Guest House for the Spring retreat.

Unfortunately, the organizer, Kathy Pearse was unable to make as her husband got sick.

We worked on large quilts, small quilts, place mats, raffle quilts, tote bags, baby quilts, paper pieced quilts, quilts using fabric from nephew’s boxer shorts, a quilt inspired by paper bags!  Some of us brought our entire sewing room, others had cut out ready to assemble quilts.  It was all inspiring!

Topics of conversations ranged from Zombies to children, husbands, family, movies and of course, the guild.

 

In this vein, You will be receiving an e-mail containing a questionnaire that might give all members a better insight into what you ,as a member, expect from the guild. It will remain anonymous.

There will be a basket at the rear at the April Meeting.

All opinions are valued. Thank You.
