  • Your yellow Registration Brochure should be at your doorstep now. Look through it and fill out forms for volunteering, entering a quilt or taking a workshop or going to an event! There are several new events, new raffles and quilt challenges to join in. Have you thought what you might enter in our theme challenge “Bee Sew Inspired”?
  • Saturday Children’s workshops: Let’s not forget our kids! Saturday workshops are in the morning for the youngest ages (7-10) “Laundry Bag” and in the afternoon (ages 10-14) “Christmas Stocking”. We have a generous sponsor, The Fabric Garden, which allows us to offer these workshops for $15. The sewing machines and workshop supplies are all provided. Barbara Batchelder is the teacher. Thank you, Barbara and Kala at The Fabric Garden. This is a wonderful opportunity for your child, grandchild or group to have a sewing workshop!
  • Quilt registrations are coming in to our quilt registrar, Carmen, to her delight! Our last postmark date this year is May 15th. If you need copyright permission, start now. Check the Blanket Permission list on our website, www.mainequilts.org, for the most up to date information. The sooner you send your registration in the lower your pickup number on Saturday. Any questions contact Carmen at quiltsreg@mainequilts.org.
  • Susan Lamie, our Workshop and Event Registrar, is ready to sign you up! PTQG members first postmark date is March 15 and nonmembers March 30. If you were a Chairperson in 2017 you may sign up starting postmark date March 1. We love our volunteers! Susan — workshopandevents@mainequilts.org
