Our Quilt will be at the New England Quilt Museum

Posted on Updated on

Our 2019 raffle quilt will be displayed at the New England Quilt Museum on August 17th from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. As a contributing guild, we are allowed to display our quilt and sell raffle tickets at the museum. We chose this date because the Celebration of Quilts will be on display in the main gallery. These are the quilts submitted by all the guilds who support the museum.

Louise Robitaille’s “Spring Bouquet” which was Best of Show from our last year’s quilt show will represent Merrimack Valley Quilters. Betty Hastings “Village” quilt will represent Essex County Needlecraft Guild. There will also be a quilt from Hannah Dustin. 

Visitors to the museum can vote for their favorite. The guild that receives the most votes will be allowed to hang an exhibit of quilts in the classroom in the following year.

Betty Hastings, Judy Naylor, and our guild rep to the museum, Diane Kelley, will sit at the raffle table through the day, but you are all invited to attend on that day or any other day while the Celebration of Quilts is up.

Parking on Saturday is behind the museum. The banks are closed.

Or you can park at the lot on Dutton Street (the National Parks lot.) Both are free while being renovated.

Ready for a road trip anyone?

Thanks to our wonderful committee we cut all 2604 pieces need for our raffle quilt!  Not only that, but we managed to package all the blocks in preparation for the December guild meeting!  Great job, ladies.   Special thanks to Mary Wilkes for opening her home to us, preparing a lovely lunch  and letting us stay until we finished the job.
