MXQ is right around the corner. There are very few sign ups for Thursday April 9. There is no one  for set up 10 to 12 and only one person 12 to 2.

Saturday April 11 is also pretty empty. Only one person at 10 to 12. One at 12 to 2 and one 2 to 5 for take down

Can you help. Call or email Betty Hastings

The meeting place for the April 18th Workshop will NOT be at the Plaistow Public Library. We have been bumped again and are currently seeking an alternative location to sew with our “Scrap Queen” Signe Kaleel. If you have a possible new game plan, email Program.

In the meantime, there is still plenty of room for members and any of their friends to sign up. Attendance is open to the general public. The material list below is very easy to assemble and as usual you’ll enjoy a great day with friends.

– Bring a bag or box of fabric scraps to share. This helps make your project “fresh” with a bit of “new” stuff!
– Sewing machine, piecing foot & extension cord
– Iron and press surface
– Thread of any old color, partial spools, bobbins, use it up
– Fabric cutting scissors / shears
– Pins
– Lunch and beverage
Signe says you don’t need rotary cutter, ruler or mat

Applique Workshop

Dancing with the Applique Queens, workshop was such a wonderful day. The “Queens” set up stations and the groups of “students” rotated every 45 mins. It was a jammed packed learning experience. Individualized and very hands on. Since all four of the Queens work differently we came away with a very large repertoire of materials and techniques. I want to thank Mary Ginn, Maggie Judd, Pat Lucy and Gail Wozniack for sharing their expertise with us. It was Merrimack Valley Quilters at it’s best.

Bus Fun Trip!

Bus trip fun

Lots of fun had by all who took the bus trip today.  Good way to spend a rainy day.  We went first to Quilting By The Yard in Conn by the great Reins Deli!!!!   Second stop at Appletree Fabrics in Auburn Ma and lastly at The Quilted Crow.     But you all missed our favorite passenger “Edna” who joined us at the last minute this year1-0314151327_Burst01 2-FullSizeRender (2)-001 3-FullSizeRender (4) 4-FullSizeRender (5)-001

Quilt Show kitchen

Got time now – why not bake for the kitchen and freeze it.   Cookies, bars, brownies, muffins etc.  When it comes to show time items must be bagged ( for example 3 cookies per bag  or two large brownies) and label what inside and if contains nuts.  Also we will be looking for donations of soda and bottles of water – so see a great sale – buy some for kitchen.   Thanks everyone
