All volunteers for the UFO Auction are requested to arrive at NECC on 2/20/2020 at 4:30 pm. Volunteers are asked to enter through the side door at the loading dock.
The doors at the Atrium will remain closed and locked until the UFO Auction Committee has time to complete set-up. We are hoping to have set-up complete and the doors open by 5:45 pm.
If you have mobility issues and normally use the loading dock doors to enter, we are asking that you please do not arrive before 5:45 pm. There will be a lot of activity in the main room at that time and we do not want to risk anyone getting hurt.
The meeting will not begin until 7 pm so there will be plenty of time for members and visitors to view all the silent auction tables before the auction starts. The usual tables in the Atrium will be set up for you to sign in and get your bidding “paddle”.
If you have any questions, comments or concerns please contact Stacey Caruso, Sue Spinelli or Liz Swan.
Thank you for your consideration.

The UFO Auction Committee will be collecting items at the guild meeting this Thursday, January23rd.
Liz’s husband, John, will be in the parking lot at NECC to help you get your items from your vehicle and into his truck. John has a large white truck with a waterproof cap and will be there to help you from 6 – 7:30 pm. No need to lug items into NECC.
It would be wonderful if you could bring your items to the guild meeting. But fear not! If that is not possible for you, the committee will be happy to come to you and collect them.
The committee is looking for volunteers for the sorting day and the set up day. More information is in the newsletter. There will be a table in the Atrium at the guild meeting on Thursday to ask questions and sign up to volunteer.
Any questions, or to make arrangements for pick up can go to Stacey Caruso: firstname.lastname@example.org or 978-914-3907

We are available to meet people at the Storage Unit and/or come to your homes for pick ups.
We would like donations of quilting cotton fabric, unfinished quilt projects, quilting supplies, embroidery, knitting, vintage sewing items and quilting books newer than 2015 (no magazines, please), and any other items you think would be of interest to your fellow quilters.
