November 2020


Kingston Plains

Nov 7th, 2020 – 10:00 A.M. TO 12:00 P.M.

Checking in 

8 members gathered in the grass, masked and at least 6 feet apart in lawn chairs.  

Future Meeting Locations: 

December 5th Zoom, time to be determined, to avoid conflicts for those of us attending the Thread House Retreat.  After discussion, and conferring with members meeting has been moved to December 12th, 10:00 am -12:00 pm, Zoom. Look for a link in your e-mail.

Committee reports

Bethany gave a Treasure’s report.  

Jo Anne reported that The Franciscan House has not been very informative, though she did speak to an employee.  I seems unlikely that we will be able to have our annual retreat in May 2021.

Voting for Officers

Our Officers for 2021:

Jo Anne D  President

Barbara M Vice President

Lou S Treasurer

Carol B Secretary

The eight members present voted in favor, and five others e-mailed their support.  Congratulations to the new board of the Seacoast Modern Quilt Guild.


Meeting opened with a discussion about scheduling the December meeting so that those of us attending the Thread House workshop would not have a conflict.

Paula has heard from the charity we donated our Sailboat quilt to, and they evaluated it at $1200. They will send a statement for our taxes.

We discussed our membership in the New England Quilt Museum.  Our membership began in September 2020, due to a clerical error on their part.  Renewal discussion postponed until April 2021.

Kate has succeeded in contacting Zoom Billing.  Apparently, a mistake was made on our account number, it is missing a digit.  Decision was made to cancel account, request a refund before reopening it as a paid account.

Paula reminded us to send our gifts by November 24th so they will arrive in time for Zoom Meeting December 5th.

Show and Tell

Is this the Kinship project or is Carol branching out into Log Cabin?  Whichever it is she has a lovely color pallets, and has discovered Moda Grunge!

Diane shows us a fall themed wall hanging, featuring her elegang peicing and quilting!

Paula shows us a Halloween themed quilt started at retreat, and just finished.  Wow! Look at those pumpkin quilt motifs on the back!

And under the Tell category:

Bethany was inspired by last months Spoonflower presentation and has invested in linoleum block printing supplies.  Can't wait to see the results!!!!

Jo Anne has purchased a featherweight.  She DID need another sewing machine!

Barbara M told us about a fabric store that is new to her : Loretta's Quilt and Yarn Shop, 304 Sandown Rd, East Hampstead NH.  When we can travel again, I'm headed there!  

Kate gave a serious thanks to Jo Anne for advice given in February about accurate strip cutting.  Her ongoing project, a gift for her mother in law is really indebted to this advice!

Do join us December 12 10-12 for the last meeting of the year!!
