Raffle Quilt Goes to MQX

Posted on

Ladies,

In order to make our journey to MQX work we need some help.

Thursday
9:00-11:00  must have one more person
11:00-1:00 would like one more person
1:00-3:00   would like one more person
3:00-5:00  must have two people
Friday
9:00-11:00  must have one more person
11:00-1:00  would like one or more people
3:00-5:00   must have one more person
Saturday
9:00-11:00 must have one more
1:00-3:00  would like one or more people
3:00-5:00 must have one more

The reason for two people in opening and closing slots is that the the quilt must be put up and taken down each day. It will be stored in a closet near the display space. If you are in a workshop and can be at our display space to assist with setup or take down, that would work also. The preference for two people at each table slot is to cover if one person is sick or has a change of plans.
Please send a message to judy.naylor@gmail.com. Final details will be forwarded when our roster is complete. New members, please remember we will support you in any way we can. If you’ve not attended MQX, it is a wonderful experience. Make a day of it and have a great time.
Thanks in advance to the 16 people who have already signed up for this adventure.

Success in Amesbury

Posted on Updated on

Some very special members supported our raffle quilt at the Amesbury Open Studio Days. Much appreciation goes out to Ann Hockmeyer, Rosalie Berard, Pat McBride, Margaret Tipton, Barbara Bell, Ann Hockmeyer, and Betty Hastings. Their efforts brought in $150.00 to our organization. An extra special thank you goes out to Brian Hockmeyer and Bill Hastings who came to help with take down.

There were lots of good questions from non-quilters. “What is a long arm quilter?” Again, it seems that non-quilting events can bring us great PR along with some cash! With the end of the Mancuso show, we have one less major event for traveling. We encourage all members to think about other local venues that might work for us.
Appreciatively,
Betty Hastings and Judy Naylor

Our new raffle quilt is ready for her first journey. She will be traveling to Connections Quilt Festival on October 25th, 26th, and 27th. This festival is in Westford, MA at the Hyatt Regency Hotel.

For new members, this is a great way to be with quilters from all over. We will pair you with someone who can teach you the ropes of being a Raffle Sitter.

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!
