Grammy's Choice Keeps on Quilting!

Due to adverse traveling conditions, Grammy’s Choice of Canton had suspended their meetings until March, but they continue to share their love of quilting in an innovative way. This is how it works.
One of the members discovers a new technique. She phones, email or comes to a nearby member’s home to share. The next member does the same until all members are notified. 
To quote Grammy’s Choice chapter contact, Phyliss, “It may be snowing and blowing, but we’re sewing and showing!”

Chickadee Quilters to host "Project Linus Blanket Day"

Chickadee Quilters of Bridgton will be holding a “Project Linus Blanket Day” on Saturday, February 28th from 10-3 at Bridgton Community Center, 15 Depot St. in Bridgton.
They will be working on quilts and collecting any that are done and ready to donate. Melodie Provost, the York/Cumberland County Project Linus representative will be on hand, and she usually brings kits and fabrics to use. Snacks and coffee will be offered, but you might want to bring along your own lunch.

If you would like to help, they do need batting and backing material. If anyone is interested in coming, please contact Beth Brown at 332-5158 for more details and to reserve a work space.
