A newsletter for Maine Quilts
The Workshop Committee met last month and did a stellar job in selecting classes that you will love. There is something for everyone including hand quilting, appliqué, machine quilting and modern quilting. We also have some terrific programs lined up. Kathy Kenny will be our Friday night speaker but I have been told by many that she is far more than a speaker. She is a story teller who weaves quilts and history together in a wonderful enjoyable manner. She will be talking to us about women’s suffrage and sharing some of her beautiful antique quilts with us. It will be a wonderful evening!
This years’ challenge is “Needle to Needle”. Some of you may be wondering about that. All I can say is Be half as creative as you were with the “Buoy! Oh Buoy Challenge” and you will be a complete success. There is no question that this is one talented group of people who take their challenges seriously. Don’t forget that it is Maine’s 200th anniversary and our 100th anniversary of the right to vote. There is a lot going on this year. The show will provide you with glimpses of the past, present and future. More information will be available on the website in December.
I did not have a chance to attend any area meetings. I certainly hope to do better in the spring. I did attend the state meeting in Augusta and enjoyed myself. It is a good chance to learn and get to know some other quilters. If you haven’t tried it you really should. There is always some good programming at the meeting.
Fall has more than arrived and looks like it is getting ready to let winter move in. I’d be happy to wait for a while but …… stay inside does have its advantages. More time to sew!
I am happy to hear any questions, comments or suggestions that you have about the show. My contact information is at the top of the page.
