Hello Everyone,


On June 4 the Houlton Country Club was full of happy quilt members as they revealed their Secret Sister and the Round Robin Row Quilt boxes to the original owners.  It was so much fun to learn about Guild members from their Secret Sisters and see the final gifts.  Then the pizza boxes were opened to reveal the creativity of the many Round Robin Row Quilt participants - so much color and incredible blocks for each row.  

 

If you were unable to make this last meeting and have either a Secret Sister to share or need to return a Round Robin Row Quilt box, please contact the person who you have, to make arrangements for the transfer of the items.  

 

Mark your calendars for our Quilt Show in August on the days of 15th through the 17th.  We will have our set up day on Thursday before.  Quilt show will be held at the Houlton Higher Education Center!

 

We are proud to announce two new members of the Executive Board for the year 2014 - 2015.  Our new President is Brittany Benn with Kim Hazlett as the Secretary.  If you see Brittany Benn around town, please give her a warm guild welcome and share how you would like to help or participate in the Guild next year.

 

On a sad note, Lynn Dillon, one of our members, recently lost her husband. Please send a sympathy card to her at 307 Moose Brook Road, Ludlow, ME 04730.  We extend our deepest sympathies to Lynn during this time.

 

Thank you again for a wonderful year.  Here is to an exciting upcoming year for our Guild under Brittany's leadership!

 

Happy Stitchin'

Kim
