Grand Lake Stream Folk Art Festival

For the second year, members of St. Croix Quilters were asked to fill the quilt tent at the annual Folk Art Festival in Grand Lake Stream, ME.  Members and friends displayed many stunnings works and several were sold to festival goers. 













 



 

Presentation of Hospice Quilts


At our June business meeting, over 40 quilts were presented to representatives from Hospice organizations from Charlotte County, NB and Washington County, ME.  Pictures above include Barbara Barnett, Marlene Wilbur, Wanda Pollock, Cathy Jackson and Susan Schnier.

18" Doll and Wardrobe Raffle



Members have gone above and beyond creating a collection of hand-made clothes and accessories to fit an 18" doll (like American Girl and others).  In addition to the doll in the box wearing red glasses (the brunette is not part of the raffle, but her gown and fur stole are), the raffle also includes lots and lots of clothes, shoes, suitcase, set of drawers, wooden wardrobe with hangers and bed complete with pillow, sheets and quilt.

See any member for tickets ($1 each or 6/$5); the drawing will take place the afternoon of July 28 at the Grand Lake Stream Folk Art Festival. 
Proceeds will be used for our Hospice Fund.  The winner of the raffle was Bonnie Hunter.
 

A New St. Croix Quilters Outreach Program:
Quilting in the Schools


Since January, several members have organized and conducted sewing classes during after-school programs at three local elementary schools, Woodland, Princeton and Calais.  Pictured above is Jane Eaton helping a Calais student make a drawstring bag.
