Best in Judged winner Sarah Ann Smith with her “Best of Judged” entry “The Wind Whirls the Winter In.” She has since renamed her work: “I love the title I entered, but after I began making it realized it didn’t suit because if it were windy, then the snow blobs would be on the ground and not still on the tree! So I have re-titled it The Old Apple Tree…”

 Betty Chouinard with “Hallelujah.” Her entry won first place in the Pieced-Small division, Outstanding Long Arm Quilting, Judge’s Choice (awarded by Pat Harrison), and Viewers’ Choice ribbons.

Giuseppe Ribaudo, Friday night banquet speaker, sharing his presentation and trunk show which was enjoyed by everyone! Special credit goes to the two volunteers who held quilts for Giuseppe while he spoke. The entire evening was entertaining!

One of the many well-attended demonstrations

~ A Note from the President ~

I hope everyone attended Maine Quilts and enjoyed the colors and techniques of all the quilts! I hope you found everything you were shopping for! I hope you enjoyed your workshops, lectures and demos! I hope you enjoyed Giuseppe, the Friday night banquet lecturer! I saw the smiles, the friendly faces, the happy souls and loved every minute of it for you.

Thank you from my Pine Tree Quilters Guild heart for your attendance and participation with our first show back. Please say thank you to all the volunteers that worked so hard to get us here. They are very much appreciated! Please come join us in our many volunteer positions next year. It is very rewarding.Callie Lavoie, President Pine Tree Quilters Guild
