Christmas Party




Show & Tell of the Month is our own Nancy Soctomah

A beautiful quilt at the October Show & Tell was made by Nancy Soctomah (right) who showed her 2017 Mystery Quilt, Scrap Dance.  Her friend Cyril helps hold the quilt.  For pictures of other Show & Tell quilts shown in October, visit our Facebook site.

Since we started posting all of the show and tell pictures on Facebook and no longer post those photos on the Show & Tell page of this website, we thought it might be nice to show one or two special quilts from time to time.  


Quilters Mark Guild's 40th Anniversary

The St. Croix International Quilters celebrated the 40th birthday of Pine Tree Quilters Guild of Maine on September 20.  When it came time to cut the cake, it seemed only appropriate that our newest member, Harriet, join one of our more senior members of SCIQ, Mary Ann.
