Mild weather brought almost 50 of our members together for the March meeting Monday afternoon. Much of the meeting agenda provided updates on the planning for the many upcoming events on our schedule.

Don’t forget Cuddle Quilt Day on March 16th – International Quilt Day! Join us at Trinity United as we check in the many quilt tops and finished quilts that our members – and others – are providing for charity this year. This event is open to the public – so if you are not a member, no problem. Come sit in and help us put the finishing touches on some of the works in progress or maybe just to ooh and aah over the quilt donations that will arrive during the day. Check out the particulars here.

Tickets are on sale for the April 10th EQ Dessert ‘Tea’ at the Mahone Bay Legion , featuring a trunk show with Melissa Marginet. If you don’t have tickets, don’t wait. They are selling fast and capacity is limited.  Check out the poster here. Only one of the three classes still had space, as of last Monday, so be sure to follow up if you would like to have the opportunity to take a class with Melissa. Non-members have the opportunity to fill some of the few vacant spots!

Plans are well underway for the Guild Quilt Show in late September. Information will be posted as it becomes available. We could always use more volunteers so let us know if you have some time and would like to get involved.

Survey results are out – and it seems that we have more afternoon meetings in our future. For those who don”t like to drive on dark nights, stay tuned for changes in our meeting schedule next year for the months of November and December.

As always, Sew and Tell was the highlight of Monday’s meeting – though this time, Sew and Tell had to share the limelight with even more quilts in the program.  First, we had the pleasure of seeing, and hearing about, some of our member projects. Be sure to check out the full album in our Photo Gallery here.

The afternoon was capped off with a Trunk Show from Barb R. She has been quilting for about 50 years and her body of work certainly shows it. Barb provided some interesting anecdotes about her quilting path and her “bottomless trunk” held many examples of her eclectic quilting projects through the years. Enjoy the photos below but the full album can be found here.

Our next meeting is on Monday, April 8th – that will be a busy week with the Dessert Tea on the 10th, and workshops on the following days. Hope to see you there!
