Just a reminder that we are in a different location Thursday night, May 18th only. We will be in the GYM at NECCO. Drive to the rear of the campus. Enter the Spurk parking area. The gym is located to the left and slightly behind the building under construction. There is handicap parking next to the building and the handicap entrance is the second (lower left) door on the side of the building. Use this entrance to avoid stairs. All others should come in the front entrance under the basketball banner.

Remember we open at 6 to socialize and we will have Becky Goldsmith as our speaker.

Please note: The Gym is not air conditioned.

Due to a scheduling conflict, our usual meeting location has changed. We usually meet in the Technology Center, indicated in red. We will be meeting in the Sports & Fitness Center, indicated in yellow.  There will be signs posted to guide you to the correct door.  Note, this is for the May 18th meeting only.

The May 2017 Newsletter is now online. Click on the Newsletter tab and then on NLMay 2017.

The Executive Board for the Merrimack Valley Quilters Guild is putting together a list of members who will participate as a committee chair or co-chair for the 2017-2018 fiscal year.  As a committee chair or co-chair for the 2016-2017 fiscal year, we need to know if you wish to continue your position for the next year.  Please let me know, either way, if you plan to continue your position.  We need to fill all the positions before the end of June.  We hope you will continue the good work you did in 2016-2017.  Please let me know as soon as possible.  I appreciate your service and your continued support.


Thank you,

Elizabeth Swan, Vice President

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
