Raffle Quilt Goes to MQX

Posted on


In order to make our journey to MQX work we need some help.

9:00-11:00  must have one more person
11:00-1:00 would like one more person
1:00-3:00   would like one more person
3:00-5:00  must have two people
9:00-11:00  must have one more person
11:00-1:00  would like one or more people
3:00-5:00   must have one more person
9:00-11:00 must have one more
1:00-3:00  would like one or more people
3:00-5:00 must have one more

The reason for two people in opening and closing slots is that the the quilt must be put up and taken down each day. It will be stored in a closet near the display space. If you are in a workshop and can be at our display space to assist with setup or take down, that would work also. The preference for two people at each table slot is to cover if one person is sick or has a change of plans.
Please send a message to judy.naylor@gmail.com. Final details will be forwarded when our roster is complete. New members, please remember we will support you in any way we can. If you’ve not attended MQX, it is a wonderful experience. Make a day of it and have a great time.
Thanks in advance to the 16 people who have already signed up for this adventure.

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!

Raffle Quilt Has Profitable Visit to Fabric Place Basement

Posted on

Thanks to the great sales skills of Jan Taylor and the help of her support staff, Cathy Harnisch, Gloria Zacharias, Ann Stobbs and Carol Sullivan, our raffle quilt had a successful visit to Fabric Place Basement last Saturday and Sunday.  Over the two days we made a total of $259.00.

If you haven’t been to Fabric Place Basement in Natick MA yet, I recommend that you plan a visit.  There are fabrics of all types from clothing to home dec and lace to leather and of course lots of quilting fabrics including batiks.  For the knitters and crocheters there is also a yarn area.  Peter, the owner, and his staff are friendly and helpful.  Check their website www.fabricplacebasement for information, directions and coupons.
