January 2022 Meeting (Zoom)


In January we held our meeting on Zoom which began with members wishing each other a very

 HAPPY 2022!

Susan Sherman our guest speaker who works with fibers and fabrics spoke about her work and shared her stories of her quilts and of her journey as a quilter.

Her work often involves animals and she has traveled to many corners of the world where she photographs animals she encounters.  She then uses her images to create her quilts.  She uses threads and tiny beads to produce exquisite details and textures.

Susan also shared her knowledge of Hawaiian culture and shared a variety of examples of Hawaiian applique quilting.  She is presenting a workshop to our guild on Zoom where members and guests will create Hawaiian applique in a two part workshop.

December 2021 Meeting

Our December meeting proved to be a fun gathering 
as we spent our evening shopping, sharing quilts, and celebrating the season together.


Members created an array of beautiful placemats 
that will be donated to Meals on Wheels.  
The people who receive them 
get very excited and truly enjoy this special gift.  
Thank you, Donna C. for organizing this project.



A Silent Auction to benefit The New England Quilt Museum
was held with beautiful handmade items. 
Members had fun bidding on various gifts,
