A newsletter for Maine Quilts
We asked for quilts and boy did you respond! 663 quilts will be at the 2019 show. Way to go quilters!!! I am so very impressed at the number of entries. I look forward to seeing all of them. Although it is not the largest number of quilts ever it is the largest number of inches which means that there will be a lot to look at. We are just about running out of room, so we have had to get a little creative. There is still lots of room for vendors!
We have a nice selection of items for the Silent Auction, but we still need more. Please consider donating an item or gift certificate or anything else you think that someone would like to bid on. Our Charity for the 2019 show is the Maine Coalition to End Domestic Violence (MCEDV). I would love to see another 12-15 items. I know we can do it !!! If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact Jill Fox at JFOX10@gmail.com or Mary Saucier SAUCIM@mmc.org who are the cochairs for this event.
Next year we need several new chairs including a volunteer chair, a workshop monitor , a quilt delivery chair and a take down chair. Chairs will get guidance and will not be left on their own. It’s a great chance to get to know some fun people and help a wonderful event succeed. If this is something you would like to know more information about any of these positions, please let me know. If you are interested, you could job shadow the current chair for part of this year’s show.
Finally, many workshops are full, but we have a few openings in several classes. If you have not already signed up, please don’t delay. Two classes that have some space are Confetti taught by Andrea Brokenshire and Embellishments; a long arm class with Debby brown. Both instructors are well known and well loved. Taking a class with either one of them will certainly be interesting, informative and fun!
Finally, don’t forget to sign up to volunteer. We love and need your help!
