Welcome

What is New this Year?

This is the first issue of a newsletter for Maine Quilts to be published at the start of each month and provide current quilt show updates and information. I hope this will enhance our usual information sources through our website, Patchwork Press, Members’ Meetings and Face Book postings. It will be short and easy to read. Read your edition through your contact person and our website. Callie

  • Our Challenge Row theme is Puffin: Not Just Black and White.
  • Sewing Machines are provided for two teachers, Karen Dever and Molly Waddell in all their classes. Karen Dever – Janomes from The Fabric Garden and Molly Waddell – Baby Locks from Sanford Sewing Machines. What a chance to take a class and not bring your sewing machine! There will be an expert helper all day to assist you with the machines.Look for these classes in your Brochure mailing in February.
  • Friday Night Intrigue at Puffin Rock Inn Dinner and Murder Mystery Theater. Dinner will start ½ hour earlier at 6:00 p.m. with doors opening at 5:30 p.m. You may wait in the Kennebec/Penobscot Room after the show closes at 5:00 p.m. The menu will include three stations featuring Mexican, Italian and American BBQ items. We have a new sponsor this year, The Cotton Cupboard Quilt Shop, who has donated for a raffle at this event only, a Floriani Total Control Professional Embroidery Software package with an MSRP of $4299. The raffle will benefit our charity, WomenHeart. WOW! Sign up for dinner on the Workshop and Event Registration form in the Brochure mailing in February.

Silent Auction is returning!

Donations of quilted items requested. There will be a group of items to be auctioned on Friday only, another group for Saturday only and a third group for Friday, Saturday and Sunday to be auctioned on Sunday. There will be random selection for the three groups. You can take your winning item home the day you place your bids on Friday and Saturday as well as Sunday! Create some buzz and bid often each day. WomenHeart is our charity supported. Contact Ellen Corey, ellen.corey@yahoo.com with questions.

Volunteers need to be a monitor for a workshop. Here is your chance to monitor a class, assist the teacher, and if time allows work on the class project. Contact Linda Quirion, linda_q@roadrunner.com if you are interested.
