Quilts for Hospice of Southern Maine-Gosnell House

This is a Facebook message sent to our Patchwork Press editor, Pam Nourse. She wanted to share with all the chapters in PTQG:

"Hi Pam,

I thought that you were the person for this request. Quilts! Hospice of Southern Maine provided homemade quilts for all patients at Gosnell Hospice house. It makes the room so much more homey and less antiseptic. They are in need of some new ones. Do you think that any of your quilting friends may have a twin quilt to donate? You can reach me at the email address below."

Pam says that she is pretty sure some of our chapters have been involved with providing quilts to Gosnell House in the past - the name is familiar, so I'm sure I've seen it in PWP before. I'm wondering if everyone - especially the area reps - can pass along the word that they could use some more, if any chapters or individuals are up for another charity project?

Quilt Show June 3rd in Mechanic Falls

The Mechanic Falls Historical Society, 64 Elm Street, Mechanic Falls will be having a small quilt show on June 3rd from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm in conjunction with the Mechanic Falls Community Day Celebration.

The Historical Society and the Anglican Church of the Transfiguration will also be holding a yard sale and a quilt raffle. Lots going on, if you get a chance to stop by!

If anyone wants to display something in the sanctuary, they can drop quilts off on Friday. Someone will be there to receive the quilts.
