Thank You Heidi!

Wow - it's been an outrageously busy summer and early fall (and the calendar doesn't make it look like it's going to slow down any time soon!) With the close of this past weekend, we can at least stop and take a breath.

Many, many thanks to Heidi Kaisand for joining us this past weekend to offer us a quilting presentation and APQS Roadshow. The lecture was educational and entertaining and the roadshow a huge success. Heidi has posted some of her Maine trip experiences to her blog, which you can link to from her website, www.heidikaisand.com . We're making plans for a return visit next fall which we hope will include another roadshow and possibly a weekend retreat!

Our presentations were held at the Winter Street Center in Bath which is owned and maintained by Sagadahoc Preservation, Inc., a local group that saves, restores and maintains local historical landmarks. We met in the parish hall and collected donations to be applied to the restoration of the sanctuary (which is a perfect place for a future quilt show!) Through the generosity of our attendees we collected over $100 in donations. Thanks! I need to look up the website for SPI so you can learn about this important organization, I'll post it later today. They are always looking for members and volunteers.

Our new class schedule in on the class page of our website, we hope you'll find something interesting - don't miss our new MCQS-U, university classes!

We hope to see you soon in Downtown Bath!

It was a wonderful weekend and my first time that far north in Maine. The weather was perfect and the area delightful with lots to see and do. Looking forward to getting back up to shop and take in some tremendous barbecue.
