Published in Quiltmania Sept/Oct 2018 issue!
Congratulations to Gretchen Berkowitch, whose quilt
"Eureka" was pictured in the latest issue of Quiltmania
magazine!  Gretchen had no idea her quilt was going
to be featured in the article about the Vermont Quilt
Festival, but when she thumbed through the
magazine, there it was.  What a nice surprise!
Stuffing the Pillowcases, Nov. 2018
On Saturday, November 24, fifteen "elves" got together to stuff 123 pillowcases!!  These will be donated to the Home for
Little Wanderers and the Department of Children and Families.  Thank you to everyone who made pillowcases and quilts
to put in them; made or donated some gift items for the children; and/or donated money for the Charitable Donations
committee to purchase most of the gift items needed for the children from infants to teens.  Our efforts will make a
difference in the lives of many children this holiday season.
Left: Mary, Jeanie and Ellen put
the final touches on the
