Maine Quilts 2020 will proudly be supporting the Maine Cancer Foundation (Women’s Cancer Fund) this July. The Maine Cancer foundation offers grants to programs which aim to reduce cancer incidence and mortality in the State of Maine. We have all been touched by cancer in one way or another. Supporting this program is a great way to support organizations that are doing some difficult and challenging work. We will be having another silent auction. Last years’ auction contained a lot of very special items. If you missed it, I can tell you that you won’t want to miss it again. Please consider donating something you created or donate tickets to a show or a gift certificate or anything else that you know someone else would love. We would appreciate it if the donated items had a minimum value of $25.00. More information will be coming out in the next few months but now is the time to think of what you would like to donate. Secondly, please come to the auction and buy some tickets. You never know what you might win!! 

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. This is their second year co-chairing this event which is one of the many ways that PTQG members support the community. Thank you all! 

I am attaching a copy of the 2020 Donation Form. Jill and Mary will be happy to accept donations at any time. Items can also be brought to members meetings or other meetings and we will be sure to get the items to the right place. 

If you haven’t been thinking about the “From Needle to Needle” challenge now is the time!! The creativity in this organization is unbelievable. I have no doubt that members will outdo themselves again. It is a lot of fun to look at all the challenge pieces and see the wide variety. 

Stay warm and don’t forget— MQ 2020 is only 6 months away!!!
