Quilters' Quarters is happy to announce that our recipient for July's first week of FEEL GOOD SHOPPING will be
"Stitching Your Wishes"
Helping our community one stitch at a time
This is a group of non-profit volunteers who meet at the Stevens Memorial Library in North Andover on the second Saturday of every month. 10:00AM – 3:00PM. (Except for July & Aug.) They knit and crochet preemie hats, baby blankets, baby sweaters, shawls, scarves, hats, mittens, chemo caps, lap robes, etc., and donate these items to local organizations, such as veteran's homes, nursing homes, pregnancy centers, homeless shelters, Hospice House, cancer units and neo-natal units at hospitals, etc.
Mark your calendar and plan your fabric, notion, thread and book shopping for July 6th through 9th and know that 10% of your purchase amount will be donated to "Stitching Your Wishes!"
Quilters' Quarters is featured in our local newspaper this week; you can read the article online at this link: Georgetown Record
We've had a strong beginning for Row by Row™ 2016 Adventure, with quilters finding us through the national Row by Row website, and several paperback travel books that now list our shop in Massachusetts.
Rick and I have begun visiting local libraries to present information on the vintage and antique sewing machines that we've learned about - we give a talk about the history and creators of these machines, and then speak to the relative ease in maintaining the hundred-plus year old work horses. We bring a treadle maqchines, a few hand cranks and Featherweights and invite the audience to visit the machines hands-on and ask questions or tell stories of their own families' machines. We've spoken to the Hammersmith Quilt Guild in Saugus, and the Georgetown Peabody Library here in town. We're scheduled for an early August presentation sponsored by the Langley-Adams Public Library in Groveland, MA.
If you would like us to visit your quilt guild or library, please contact us via email: firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll be happy to schedule with you.
