Sew Happy

 A week has passed since our 2015 quilt show came to a close. Now fully recovered and rested, we can look back on another successful show.

Many thanks to our quilt show chair, Ellie Coffey! She is pictured here with the lucky winner of the raffle quilt, member Mary Raymond. 

Best of Show was awarded to Donna Zuffelato's Double Wedding Ring with Flowers, quilted by Pat Harrison. 

Viewer's Choice was awarded to Pat Harrison's Garden Finale.

 The miniature quilt silent auction raised $711 for Family Housing Support.

The basket raffle was a new addition to the show this year. We'd like to thank the many members and local businesses who donated raffle items. Special thanks to Fabric Place Basement, Blaine's Sewing Machine Center, Emma's Quilt Cupboard, Colchester Mill Fabrics, The Quilted Crow, and Knit One Quilt Too.

Unfortunately, the proposed quilt show booklet was not assembled. We would like to thank the following businesses for their willingness to purchase advertising space: Piecing with Poppers Quilting Center, Fabric Place Basement, Seaside Stitches, Coastal Payroll Solutions, Clark Farms, and Golden, Gromley & Company.

Thank you to all the members who submitted quilts to the show and volunteered to make the show a great success! And thank you to all of our visitors for supporting us. We'll see you all again October 13-15, 2017!
