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.

Do you have available time to volunteer on March 23rd?

We have an opportunity to display our Raffle Quilt at Vesey Park in Groveland. Can you spare some time? We can only do this with member support. Please contact Judy at judy.naylor@gmail.com.

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

Thanks to all who signed up to sit with our quilt at the Connections Quilt Festival. We still need someone willing to white glove on Thursday, October 25th and Saturday, the 27th. If you can fill one of these slots, please contact Judy.naylor@gmail.com.

We would also like more company for Ann Hockmeyer at Amesbury Open Studio Days, Saturday, November 11th from 12:00-2:00 and from 2:00-4:00.

Please and thank you,
Betty and Judy

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.

Please email judy.naylor@gmail with times that you can sit at the table.

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!

Thanks,

Ann Hockmeyer

Lowell and Manchester Shows – Help Needed

Posted on Updated on

Our raffle quilt is going to Lowell this weekend and we still have spots to fill for selling tickets and white gloving.  Help is needed on; Thursday the 8th from 12-2, 2-4, and 4-6  on Friday the 9th another person is needed from 2-4 and 4-6. and on Sat the 10th at least one person is needed from 12-2 and 2 or more from 2-4.  Please contact Carol Sullivan at casulli@comcast.net if you can help.  Thanks to those who have volunteered already- I’ll be sending you a separate reminder of the time you volunteered for.

Next week the quilt will be going to the World Quilt Show in Manchester.  Help is still needed in many time slots on Fri. Aug 16, Sat. Aug 17 and Sun. Aug 18.  To volunteer please contact Terri Gelinas at gelina5246@comcast.net.  What better way to spend a day in August than visiting a quilt show and helping the guild, having a chance to wear those white gloves and being able to check out the quilts up close, taking a sit down break and selling raffle tickets and then going on a shopping spree.
