Wowza! The Maine Modern Quilters are in AWE of the love and support shown to us at our first ever Modern Quilt Expo. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!!!! We had so much fun planning the event, and it was so much fun to talk to the 200-ish guests that visited about modern quilting. A photo retrospective is below.
Hello Faithful Readers!
We are hoping you can swing by this Saturday, April 7 for our very first Modern Quilt Expo. It will be held at the First Congo Church on 19 Gloucester Hill Rd. New Gloucester, Maine. It will be very casual and fun – We will have approximately 60 modern quilts on display, and the demonstrations will be on how modern quilters are using hand quilting, paper piecing and improv curves. Each demonstration person will be at a table, and will engage in one-on-one conversation/ demonstration or small group conversation/ demonstration as people wander through. The make-n-take is a modern potholder – ha ha – exciting, right? You must admit though, it is a project that can be completed in a short amount of time, and is appropriate for all ages, and… have you looked at your potholders lately? It might be time for a spring cleaning….
We have an excellent raffle item. One of those very cool collapsible wheeled carts. Through the generosity of Quiltessentials, Alewives, Missouri Star, and Studio E Fabrics, there are also some great items IN the cart.
If you are participating in the Maine Shop Hop, we are a nice stop on the way to Quiltessentials in Auburn, Oxford Mill End Store in Oxford, and Sew Orchid in Norway. If you are looking for well priced home dec or marine fabrics, The Fabric Warehouse in Auburn is also nearby.
Have a terrific week and we hope that you can drop in on Saturday!
Quite a few of us made the trekk to the Quilter’s Gathering in NH. This is just one photo from there. Can you guess how it’s made?
