June Meeting Recap

Our June meeting was a sew-in for the Quilts for Boston project.  I have been so touched by everyone who has pitched in with piecing, quilting, binding and anything else that needed done to get these quilts out to people who need them.  I love to see our members making good use of the "business" portion of our meeting  hand tacking bindings:-)

A few announcements for members who couldn't attend:

  • We are getting ready for the Lowell Quilt Festival August 8th-10th.  Our annual mini-quilt challenge will be Red Nails.  Quilts for the show will need to be delivered by Sunday, August 4th.  Watch our blog for a new LQF tab with a submission form and more information.  We hope all our members will participate in this fabulous event!!!
  • The fabulous folks at Quilter's Way are hosting a Quilts for Boston sew-in night Wednesday, June 26th from 6-9.  Bring your machine and rotary cutter.
  • The incredible gang at Gather Here in opening up their awesome Annex for another Quilts for Boston sew-in on Sunday, June 30th from 12-3.  All supplies will be provided, just bring your enthusiasm to sew:-)
  • Our next meeting will be Saturday, July 20th from 1-3 at the Lower Falls Community Center.  We will be getting ready for LQF and have a demonstration of how to make your hanging sleeve for the show.

Finished quilts are starting to come back and we're so excited to start distributing them!!!
