Step Stools Needed

Posted on Updated on

I misspoke last night at the meeting. I should’ve asked for step STOOLS not ladders.

Quilt Show Needs

There’s less than 2 weeks before our quilt show! We have lots of things that are needed and we need your help.

  1. Please make a quilt to donate to our charity project, Maris Center in Salisbury, which houses women in transition and will gladly accept quilts of any size.
  2. Please make a small item for the Silent Auction. All of the Silent Auction revenue will be donated to Pettengill House. This charity provides food for the hungry in our community.
  3. Please bring fat quarters, American Girl outfits and lottery tickets to the meeting so that we can prepare those items for the penny raffle.
  4. White Elephant items and completed raffle baskets will be accepted at the meeting on the 21st and on the morning of Thursday the 28th during setup.

Well done, MVQ!!!!

Posted on Updated on

A great show is over. Time to sit back on our laurels. Applaud the winners and each and every maker who entered a quilt. It was nice to see even a new member like Heather Shields enter a quilt to be judged!

Thanks to all the worker bees who tirelessly gave every efffort for this event! It can’t be done without you.

Thanks to the demonstrations given and organized by Gail; Lyn Grenier, Maddie Burke, Jeannie Robertson, Betty Hastings, Janice Jones,and Pat Lucey.

The ribbons were beautiful- made by a group sewing together[among them,  Jan Taylor, Carol Sullivan, Cathy Harnish and others, I am sure!] and Addy for the lovely vendor ribbons.

Challenge was fun!

Penny raffle, as usual, drew a crowd- Thanks, Kathy, Gail etc.

White Elephant ladies- Angie and Barbara outdid themselves!

Carrie our judge and show hanging organizer: we are very grateful!

Vendors- thanks to Marianne and Bev! Nice gathering.

Thanks to Bev for the Silent Auction!

And to have a very deserving winner of our raffle quilt- Jeannie Elliot, made it all the better! You are wrapped in love from every member of this guild!

And of course, without Jane and Layne, none of this would have been possible. Brava! Ladies of MVQ
