Travel Quilt Update

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.

Raffle Quilt Goes to Connections

Posted on

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
10:00-12:00 –
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.

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!
