New England is famous for its fall colors, but October 2016 in Boston is equally well known for the quilt scene. Here are six quilt destinations worth checking out this month.
Folk Grafika features quilts by Maritza Soto in Somerville. The opening reception is Saturday, October 8 but the Washington Street Gallery is open every Saturday in October.
In Lexington, the Rising Star Quilters will shine on October 14 and 15 with their fun filled destination quilt show. In addition to the display of member and benefit quilts, there’s a cafe, boutique, demonstrations and a scavenger hunt.
3. On October 23 and 23 at the Campus Center of the Middlesex Community College, the Burlington Quilters’ Guild hosts their annual show.
Our goal of 10 finished quilts to donate to the Orlando Modern Quilt Guild was surpassed! Fourteen quilts were sent out last week. The OMQG initiative hopes to give 300 quilts to survivors and family members suffering after the June Pulse night club tragedy.
A strong team of piecers, quilters, binders, label attachers made the work light. Thank you to each of you! Special thanks to Jane Barnett who kindly donated so much beautiful fabric from the recently closed Quilter’s Way shop
One of our lovely customers recently requested that we use Quilter’s Dream Cotton Supreme in her king size quilt… she won’t be cold this winter. With that roll now added to our batting wall, it means we currently have all four Quilter’s Dream Cotton Batting in stock.
The Supreme is a 100% cotton batting in a 93″ width and costs US$0.50 per inch ($18/yard). We sell all of our batting by the inch and cut them from the roll just for your quilt.
If you’re not sure which batting to choose and want a toasty, heavy quilt this winter, ask to feel the new Quilter’s Dream Supreme!
Can you believe we’ve gone 10 days without a snowstorm? Only flurries and signs of melting snow. February went by in a flurry both figuratively and literally.
If you missed the Open House the Statler Stitcher Creative Studios classes, we were delighted that the snow held off. Thanks to all who came! It was a great turn out, a good way to stop shoveling and quilting to socialize. We enjoyed chatting with everyone, sharing a warm drink and a nibble (or two).
Jaws dropped when quilters walked into the new space (we’re wondering if “the Annex” nickname may be replaced by “the Blue Room”). Brian Tjelta shared tidbits from the latest software version for the Statler Stitcher.
Everyone gravitated around the Virtual Quilt Show. Nearly 100 photos were contributed by more than 36 people. Close ups, on the bed, held up by family, just off the frame or hung professionally, it was an inspiring sight to see.
On Monday, it was back to snow storms…..
While we’re still getting used to the extra space, we already appreciate not squeezing everything into the original room. More later, but for now, there’s quilting to be done!
In our email reminder and on our Facebook page we announced our hope to project images of quilts worked on at Laurena’s over the years. Whether it is a custom quilting job that Laurena did or a quilt done individually, we thought this would be a great way to celebrate the many tops that have become quilts since Laurena started the business.
Many, many, many thanks for everyone who contributed to the Virtual Quilt Show! Alanna’s putting the slide show together. If everything goes as planned, we’ll enjoy seeing a great many quilts at the Open House with no white gloves necessary 🙂
