PTQG State Members Meeting-January 26, 2013

Just a quick reminder that we have an upcoming members meeting on Saturday, January 26th at the Jewett Hall, University of Maine at Augusta from 9:30 a.m. to adjournment.

Our speaker will be Nancy Morgan of Springvale, ME, who is an artist, graphic designer, fiber artist and quilter.

Don't forget to bring along your lunch and show-and-tell. Oh, and remember to wear your favorite apron--whether or not it's your own style or that of your grandmothers, let's show them off!

Quiltville "Easy Street" Part IV

I have to be honest-Bonnie's mystery quilts have been in the past, well, much harder to make. Yes, you see a pleasant smile on MY face! :)


Here is a photo of step four completed-yes, more flying geese and now we are combining steps-yea! The red squares are 3 1/2" (all 145 pieces of them) and I can't wait until Friday to find out how they play out in step five.

Exhibit on Maine Schoolgirl Needlework

Thanks to Diane Duplissis for forwarding this information for the blog!

The Dyer Library and Saco Museum, located at 371 Main St. in Saco, ME will be holding several events in the next few months that you can find out more information on their website by clicking the link below:
 One of interest to most quilters and needleworkers is:"I MY NEEDLE PLY WITH SKILL": Maine Schoolgirl Needlework of the Federal Era
FREE public opening reception: Friday, January 11, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
January 12 through March 2, 2013
Join us for an in-depth look at the complex and lovely needlework created in Maine by schoolgirls of the late 18th and early 19th centuries. About 80 samplers and other embroideries will be on view, drawn from the collections of the Dyer Library/Saco Museum as well as other public and private collections in Maine and beyond.
