Thank You

Posted on

I want to say a very special “Thank you” to Pattie Gregg, Susan Nelson (new member), Marilyn Dutton, Bev Valle, Angie Cyr and her son Mark.  Together, we had the Estate Sale cleared of fabric and notions and in Angie’s van in about an hour and a half!  The van was filled to the top, the owners were very happy, and the guild received a lot of good “stuff” for the white elephant room at this year’s quilt show.  Angie will have her hands full going through and sorting everything, so if you can, please contact her and ask her how you can help.  Many hands make light work.  Our volunteers are amazing!

Help needed for white elephant

Posted on Updated on

Ladies, I need your help.  Some of us attended an estate sale a couple of weeks ago at a home where a woman was a quilter and had lots of fabric.  She moved to an assisted care facility.  The family has hired a dumpster to clean out the home to prepare the house for selling.  They will allow our guild to go in and take the rest of the fabric for free, however, we need to do this on Wednesday, July 24th at 9 am.  I know it is very short notice, but if you are able to help fill trash bags and bring them out to Angie’s car or my truck please email me at  Be advised that we will be cleaning out 3 floors of this home and everything is in disarray.  It will be hot, dirty work but will give a real boost to our white elephant room this year.  Please consider helping out.  I look forward to hearing from you.  Thank you!
