Meeting Agenda

1. Program – Elections, Silent Auction

The May meeting is our annual fundraiser for the New England Quilt Museum. Silent auction donations will include hand/home made items such as: baked items, jewelry, knitted & quilted items, clothing, bags, painting, sculpture….the possibilities are endless! Other items may include quilting supplies, quilt kits, books and supplies. Guests are welcome to attend for $5, so bring your friends and help us raise much needed funds for the museum. As the NEQM Executive Director, Nora Burchfield, said, if quilters don’t support the quilt Museum, who will? We encourage you to bring something in May, whether it be a home made item or your checkbook. And equally important, visit the museum and take part in all they have to offer. 
Please bring your donations to the May meeting and give them to Allison Wilbur in the lobby. If you would like to bring quilting supplies, please make sure they are securely bundled, bagged or tied. Please print out the form at the end of the newsletter, fill it in and bring it in with your item. This is always a festive evening and a good time to shop for all your gifting needs. Please be creative in locating items to sell and remember to bring your checkbooks!
Have questions? Suggestions? Please contact  Allison Wilbur
At the May meeting we will also have on display a trunk show from the Studio Art Quilters Associates (SAQA).
