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!



Spice Mountain, a success!

Co-chairs Betty Hastings and Nancy Dempsey want to thank the people who came>and worked on the raffle table at the Mancuso show. Some people workedmultiple days and some worked multiple shifts to get the table covered. It
was well worth the effort. Bev Valley and Liz Caiado’s beautiful quilt, quilted by Carrie Zizza
Spice Mountain,  drew great attention and brought in over $500. We are off
to a great start.
