As seen in these two photos folks on the bus trip had a great time. We went to Maine this year to Cottonweeds in Freeport, Alewives in Nobleboro and Main-ly Sewing also in Nobleboro.
If your travels take you nearby these shops, stop in, I don’t think you will be disappointed.
Hope you will join us next year on our spring mystery bus trip.
Many thanks to the women who gathered at Pat Lucey’s house on Saturday for a ribbon making workshop:
Gloria, Dee, Jan, Sue, Paula, Cindy, Janice, Patty, Joanne, Karen, Roseann, Mary, Pat and Maggie!
Work was accomplished and all shopped excitedly for the donated fabric,, books and zippers! A nice amount will be credited to the White Elephant table!
The Greater Newburyport Ovarian Cancer [GNOCA] group is organizing the creation of a quilt to celabrate a survivor or to memorialize a loved one who has been lost to ovarian cancer.
The center square has been designed and executed.
The size of each block should be 12 1/2 inches.
Please contact Cathy Crawford if you are interested in contributing to the project: 978-363-5406 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The CALM quilt is not intended to be a perfect quilt, but a dynamic ode to resilience, survival, hope, courage and a final cure.
Still a few openings – have your plans changed and you can now get away for a fun filled day of quilt shopping ? We leave 8am and get back about 5:30 pm – contact Gail Wozniak if you can now come. Non member guests are welcome.
Storybook Quilts Being Enjoyed
Four elementary schools out in Shrewsbury Mass are enjoying our Storybook Quilts for a month. One school had them for one week last year and the word got out. The librarian’s, art teachers and classrooms teachers are thrilled to be using them in their curriculum. So talk to your children, grandchildren, local schools and libraries. These are great treasures we have made and own, and a wonderful way to pass the world of quilting on to our future generations. Pictured is second grader Emily Beers, granddaughter of Gail Wozniak.
