MVQ Storybook Quilts

The MVQ Storybook quilts, the books, and the lesson planning materials have been donated to the Georgetown Peabody Library Children’s room staff. They are in the process of photographing and posting the books and quilts to all of the Children’s Librarians in the Merrimack Valley Consortium. They can be borrowed and shared. Diane Kelley has already used four of the kits at the Ipswich Library.

The enormous Tupperware containers that formerly housed them are available. The have wheels and they seal very tightly. They are in excellent condition but They are far too large to put in our storage facility.

If you could use them contact Betty Hastings. You will need a very large van or truck to take them away. But if you want them, please come and get them. PLEASE

Books, Books, Books

Until the end of April, the friends of the Amesbury Public Library have a special display for sale of about 200 books donated by a local quilt store. Best prices: $2:00 hardcover, $1:00 paperback.

The Library is on Main Street. Follow rt. 150 N from Rt 495N.

New England Quilts and the Stories They Tell
Friday, May 25, 1PM.
Rodgers Memorial Library
194 Derry Road (Rte. 102)
Hudson, NH

Quilts tell stories, and quilt history is full of myths and misinformation as well as heart-warming tales of service and tradition. Quilting is NOT just an American art; nearly every world culture that has cold weather uses quilted textiles. Pam Weeks, from the NE Quilt Museum, weaves world history, women’s history, industrial history and just plain wonderful stories into her presentation. Participants are invited to bring one quilt for identification and/or story sharing.


This program is made possible by a grant from NH Humanities.
