Friends and Needles Quilt Guild  - 30 Years and Counting

    Greetings on another cold snowy morning.  

    Have you made your plans and invited a friend to our Friday evening Trunk Show with Dan & Carol Perkins?

    Remember, Friday evening March 6, 6:30 pm, at the Houlton Higher Education Center.  The Trunk show promises to inspire and encourage our love of creative quilting.

    Saturday, March 7, 9am-3pm, is the Workshop "Doubly Charmed" also at the HHEC.  The highlights of this workshop are learning to use 2 new specialty rulers and having 88 charm squares (5" squares) yields 2 quilts.   There are several spots still available for anyone interested in participating.  This is a wonderful learning opportunity, not to mention all the fun that will be had.

 

So make your plans and invite a guest
