Christmas Party

A new way to swap gifts was lots of fun!


And what we are famous for, a delicious buffet lunch!

Quilters' Yard Sale—Nov. 3

A terrific way to cleanout our quilting rooms, earn a little money and donate 10% to the Guild. 
Of course, some ladies had so much fun shopping they took home as much as they brought!


2010 Quilt Show Donations

In October we presented $3,500 in proceeds from our quilt show to two very deserving charities:  Washington County Meals for ME ($1,350 proceeds from the show) and the Ronald McDonald House in Bangor ($2,150 proceeds from the raffle quilt).  Above are (l to r) Meals for ME Assistant Manager Lori Diadone and volunteer Kristi McIver who are presented a check from Quilt Show Committee Chair Joanne Spencer.

Shop Hop—May 1, 2010

Forty-two quilters from 22 different towns in eastern and northern Maine and St. Stephen, New Brunswick, got together for a visit to Quilt Essentials in Auburn, The Busy Thimble in Litchfield,  Mystic Quilts in Gardiner, Whipper Snappers in Hallowell, and Stitches in Newport.

Once again, Sue McIver organized a fabulous Quilt Shop Hop!  Thanks, Sue.

FUN ON THE BUS:  She's doing what?

Is a thong a new quilting tool?

Our bus driver, Steve, a quilt-lover, too!
