Our quilt’s journey to the Connections Quilt Festival brought $180 to the guild coffers. Many thanks go out to our volunteers who sat at the table and/or white-gloved. We appreciate the time and energy given by Carol Sullivan, Ann Stobbs, Mary Stobbs, Jamie Ruh, Liz Swan, Mary Wilkes, Carol Robinson, Brenda Haskell, Cindi Fergusen, Ronni Longwell, Gail Forthoffer, Betty Hastings, and Judy Naylor.

Correction. The MVQ retreat is not on the same weekend as the Connections Festival
The Retreat in Kennebunk is Nov 1 to 5
The Connections Festival in Nashua is Nov 9 to 11.
We still need people to work with our raffle quilt at the Connections Festival on November 9, 10, and 11.
Here’s what we need:
Thursday, November 9
8:00-10:00 at the table (Arrival can be at any time from 8:00 on. These people will set up the quilt any time from 8:00 on)
9:00-12:00 (a one hour stint white gloving within this time slot)
4:00 – 5:00 (Then take down the quilt leaving the rack up for the next day. Bag the quilt and bring it to the Vintage & Vogue booth in the vendor room. Our quilt will be put under their table for the night. Please leave the cart and cash box under our table and bring home the money to be picked up later.)
Friday, November 10 –
9:00-10:00 at the table (You can set up our quilt can be anytime from 8:00 on. You will retrieve our quilt from the Vintage & Vogue booth. You will be provided with start-up money before the 10th.)
9:00-12:00 (see same time slot above)
4:00 – 5:00 (see time slot above)
Saturday, November 11 –
9:00-10:00 (See same time slot for November 10th)
9:00-12:00 (we need people for the raffle table and someone to do a one hour stint white gloving)
4:00 – 5:00 (and take down the quilt and pack everything up and bring it home)
Part of our problem is that some of our members will be at the retreat at Kennebunk. There is a concern having only one person in a time slot. If that person is unable to show at the last minute, the table will be unattended. Hope you are able to step for our guild.
Here’s a list of the people who have made a commitment.
Thursday – November 9
10:00-12:00 – Carol Sullivan
12:00-2:00 – Mary Stobbs Ann Stobbs
2:00-4:00 – Jamie Ruh
Friday – November 10
10:00-12:00 – Liz Swan Mary Wilkes
12:00-2:00 – Carol Robinson
2:00-4:00 – Cyndi Fergusen
Saturday – November 11
12:00-2:00 – Ronni Longwell
2:00-4:00 – Gail Forthoffer
4:00-5:00 – Gail Forthoffer
Nancy Dempsey is on a list to take a day where needed.

I want to thank everyone who made a deposit and took a baggie or two to piece the blocks for the 2017-2018 Raffle Quilt. If you are having any problems or have questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As a reminder, pieced blocks need to be returned at the March 2017 guild meeting or earlier. When you return your baggies, we will return your deposit. There are still baggies available and we will have committee members in the lobby at the January 2017 guild meeting who will be happy to take your deposit and give you a baggie or two to piece.
Members of the Raffle Quilt Committee are meeting for an open sew on Saturday, January 28, 2017 from 10 am to 4 pm at Aunt Mary’s Quilting, 43 Stark Road, Derry, NH, 03038 to piece blocks and help anyone that has a question or needs hands-on help to complete your block(s). All members are welcome to help piece blocks and begin the quilt assembly process. This is a great time to socialize, view the progress of this beautiful quilt and see Mary Kendall’s wonderful shop (FYI she sells fabric and kits!).
Let me know if you have any questions, comments or suggestions. Thank you for your support!
2017-2018 Raffle Quilt Committee Chairperson
