Quilter of the Year 2010 – 2011

Posted on

This year’s Quilter of the Year is a woman who has been a member for about ten plus years.

She has served the guild in many capacities in a very quiet gentle way.  She has taught classes over the years at a local quilt shop in her area, she has shared her journey with us, she has been the guild treasurer and she has won ribbons for her quilting at many of our guilt shows.  She co-chaired this year’s quilt show and our winner is Mary Ginn.

August Shows -Help Needed

Posted on

Fellow Quilters,

We will be displaying our raffle quilt and selling chances at the World Quilt Show New England at The Radisson Center of New Hampshire, Manchester, August 18-21 and are in need of help. In order to participate we also need to provide 32 hours of white gloving. Volunteering to white glove while you visit the show is a great way to see the show up close and on the reverse side while helping your guild. Then perhaps you could sit and relax for an hour with our raffle quilt before going off to check out the vendors. You can choose your day Thurs, Fri, Sat or Sun and time slot. This venue has been the biggest moneymaker for our guild in the past and we need to have enough volunteers to go there this year.

Help is needed
Thursday Aug 18 in all time slots for both sitting with the raffle quilt and white gloving
Friday Aug 19 tickets 9:30-12, 2-4 , 4-6 White glove anytime
Saturday Aug 20 tickets 4-6 White Glove anytime from 12-6
Sunday Aug 21 tickets 12-2, 2-4 White Glove anytime

We would also like to go to Images in Lowell Aug 11- 13 and need volunteers to white glove and sell raffle tickets.

Help is needed
Thurday Aug 11 tickets 12-2, 4-6 White glove anytime
Friday Aug 12 tickets 9:30 -12, 2-4, 4-6 White glove anytime

If you can volunteer any of your time, please contact Carol Sullivan e-mail or call 603-893-5211 with your date and time preference.

Thanks to those who have already volunteered and those who are about to.
