I have someone to take over The Hole in the Wall Gang leader. Laurie and I took on the organize of the quilts in and around 1997. Since then we have over come so many obstacles.
Hopefully you all will share your talent and sewing abilities to this eager group.
I am ever so grateful to realize that YOUR talents in many quilts and pillowcases to these young campers over all these years.
It is time for me to step back but not all the way.
Thank you all for showing every one that we care about our youth.
Another note, lets finish up the current quilts. Q’s call me.
Marcia has decided to step aside as the Hole in the Wall Coordinator. She has done an exceptional job over the last two years and we will miss her dedication and enthusiasm.
Hole in the Wall has been a cornerstone charity of the guild for many many years. We are looking for a person or a group of people to step up and be the coordinator for the 2018-2019 year.
Please Contact RoseMary Koch, Dawn DeCosta or Marcia Dibrigard if you are looking for more information or wish to coordinate this wonderful charity.
RoseMary Koch is looking for the individual who volunteered to print out a message on fabric quilt labels. This label will be for the Veterans’ Quilts made by North Parish and attached to the quilts donated to the VFW.
Please contact RoseMary Koch at email@example.com if you can assist in the endeavor.
Marcia has chosen a new chairty block for this coming year.
Hopefully many will feel inspired. It will also be included in the September Newsletter.
Charity Star Block (1)
HERE is the January Newsletter. We are looking forward to seeing everyone for our annual Charity Night.
Please be aware that the doors are opening early at 5:30 PM so we will have more time to work on our charity projects.

North Parish Quilters Winter Wonderland
December 14, 2016
Winter wonderland has arrived!!!!
For our annual Holiday Tea this year we are going to try something different. The guild this year is going to have our gala event catered. There will be an assortment of hot foods for your dining pleasure and of course a wonderful arrangement of delicious dessert. You will just need to bring your favorite tea cup and of course someone at the table should also bring their favorite tea pot.
We would love you to show off your favorite Holiday Quilt for our show and tell enjoyment.
Do not forget to bring some extra cash with you that night because we will have a few of our guild members vending for the night and of course let’s not forget about our Raffle Baskets. Remember this is the time to purchase any last minute gifts you may have forgotten. It is a great time to pick up that little extra something.
A quick reminder that the meeting will start at 6:00 pm and remember this is going to be a fun evening with friends and fellow quilters celebrating the Holidays.
If you would like to help out some homeless people this year, please donate hats, mittens, scarfs, socks, any items that they might like. We will be donating these items to the Bread of Life in Malden, Ma. There will be a tree that we will be hanging these items on.
This is the guilds way of saying “Thank you” for all that you do, so come and enjoy the fun and festivities of the night. It surely will be a lot of laughs. Hope to see you there.
The Hole in the Wall Sit and Sew at the Mattera Cottage was a great time. We were able to get quite a few quilt tops started or finished.
Thank you to the ladies who participated in this fun event.
