2017-2018 MVQG Raffle Quilt

Posted on

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 liz@swanquilting.com.

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!

Raffle Quilt 2017-2018

Posted on

I am forming a committee of volunteers to work on the raffle quilt for the 2017-2018 season.  This is a good opportunity for members who do not have a lot of time to spare to have a chance to volunteer.  For our new members, volunteering is a great way to get to know other members of the guild in an environment outside the regular guild meetings.  All I need right now is a willingness to meet and share ideas.  We can decide as a committee when and where we would like to gather for future meetings.  If you are interested, please email me at liz@swanquilting.com.  Tell me what days of the week and time of day you are available.  I will try to make the first meeting on a day and time that works for the majority.  We can meet just about anywhere, so if you have any suggestions about a meeting spot, please let me know.  I would like to set up a meeting sometime in July as I am excited to begin the project, so the sooner you reply the better.  Let me know if you have any questions or suggestions.


Thank you!



Amesbury Days Art Expo

Posted on Updated on

The Amesbury Days Art Expo on June 25th  & 26th in Amesbury city hall where we are hanging our raffle quilt has become a mini quilt show just for MVQ members!

We have an incredible opportunity to promote our guild and advertise our Newburyport Show “Autumn Splendor”. To make this easier due to the short notice I would like to hang all or most of the Presidents Challenge Quilts. Another person who hopes to one day also become a certified judge will judge them and award ribbons. This is a secure place and I’ll be with the quilts both days along with other members.

If you will allow me to bring your quilt to Amesbury Days then you can just leave it with me after our meeting next week. If not, then you may pick your quilt up on Thursday night after the meeting. I will work out the logistics of how to get your quilts back to you as soon as possible and I have others who will help me. Thanks in advance for all your help and cooperation! Let’s have a mini pop up quilt show!

Thank you to the people who have signed up to white glove or to sell raffle tickets at the World Quilt show August 14 through 17.

Once again, we have the opportunity to have the raffle quilt at Mann’s Orchard. The dates are August 26, 27, and 28, from 9 am to 4 pm. If you can take a shift please email Betty Hastings. Come and join the fun.  There is electricity available so bring the quilt you are working on, hand or machine work.  Cathy Harnisch generally brings an iron for all to use.

World Quilt Show update

I have gone through the entire list of guild members, calling each and everyone of you.  If you didn’t get a call, it’s because the phone number was incorrect.  If you got a call and did not call me back, please call me back as I still have room to fill on the roster. I will be calling you back if I don’t hear from you by Monday.

With that said, its a go. We WILL be going to the Mancuso show with our raffle quilt!  Please double check the list to make sure I have you listed correctly.  If you have not signed up there is still time.

Check the Mancuso web site for more information about the show.

See you at the show.
