WELCOME

The Squanicook Colonial Quilt Guild is a non-profit organization dedicated to the art and craft of quilt making through education, preservation, and fellowship. Whether you collect quilts, love them, make them or just want to learn more about them, we invite you to join our guild.

We currently have approximately 150 members. It's a large guild, but we try to keep the small guild feel by providing lots of opportunities for members to be involved in such things as open sews and workshops. Our members come from all over north-central Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire. We are a friendly group and would love to have new members join us.

News from the Quilt Cupboard and Membership:

The SCQG Quilt Cupboard will continue to meet at the Groton Senior Center in their large activity room when the Groton Senior Center. Please contact Jan Dillon or Sue Houde for more information.

The Quilt Cupboard is interested in expanding the distribution of finished quilts. They are asking if you could think about sites like shelters for battered women and children, or other agencies that we could make regular donations of quilts to those who may need them. It would be helpful to come up with a list of places we would like to make regular donations to, so that we could get more involved in the wider community and spread the joy of receiving a new quilt. More to come on this, but first, please email houdesusan@yahoo.com with ideas of agencies in our geographic area that are potential sites for us to contact. Identifying an agency does not mean you need to be the liaison for that agency.

We will begin to distribute quilts to older adults needing a quilt for comfort through the Groton Council of Aging. The quilts will be distributed by the Council after requesting a quilt through me. If anyone would like to establish a relationship with the Council of Aging in your town, could you please contact them and let me know how it goes. I think the Council of Agings should have a good idea of who the older adults in town are who would benefit from a quilt. We continue to distribute quilts to Project Linus, Emerson Cancer Center and I still plan to contact LGH Cancer Center. Please consider contacting other groups so that we can set up additional organizations through which we can distribute our quilts.

Thanks for all you do for the Quilt Cupboard and hope to see you all soon! Also could you also let me know if you have distributed a quilt to anyone in the past month. Sue and Jan

 

Lastly, stay safe and

Happy sewing!
