Quilters!  You ladies are just amazing. Thanks for your continued support. We will put all these wonderful supplies to good use."

Volunteers like Marina, spent a few hot days the end of July setting up, selling raffle tickets of our quilt to benefit Ronald McDonald Charities in Maine and New Brunswick, sharing information about our group, and answering many questions about quilts and quilting.  Several quilters also sold quilts at the festival.


Signature Blocks Presented to Sue McIver 

Outgoing St. Croix Quilters president Sue McIver was presented with dozens of signature blocks made by members as a thank you gift for her five years serving as president of our chapter.

Round Robin

The magical reveal of our first Round Robin was held at the July business meeting.  Participants were very pleased!  Thank you, Mary Louise.


At the invitation of Down East Quilters, we joined their group in East Machias for a "Flamingle" summer picnic.  What fun we had!
