Last year, to enormous acclaim, the County Line Quilters and the Framingham Artists’ Guild held a joint exhibition called Stitches and Strokes: Quilts and the Paintings that Inspired Them. Using the artists’ paintings as their creative starting point, the quilters made fiber artworks. When shown side-by-side the results were dazzling!
The whole process and the relationship was so much fun that we did not want it to end. Reversing roles, this year the Framingham Artists’ Guild chose quilts made by the County Line Quilters to be the stimulus for their paintings. The result is our new show entitled Stitches and Strokes Switched: Paintings and the Quilts that Inspired Them.
Annual 2017 Spring retreat!
When/Where: June 1st - 4 th , 2017 @ Franciscan House, Kennebunk, ME
And so we begin again thinking of our quilting retreat. I know the dates are not conducive to everyone’s schedules,because of graduations etc. and we're sorry about that.
One change this year is we will not all be in the main building, but in some of the outer buildings. We will be getting a list of room types and location soon.
So, without further ado, let the signups begin! I’ll need your name, your room type, and a deposit of $75.00
Any questions, please ask!

April Nominations for May Elections
Our guild is in the process of putting together the slate of officers and committee chairpersons for the following year. Please consider volunteering for one of these positions which make our guild function smoothly.
If you look at our By-Laws you will see the Offices and Committees that require filling in. None of the openings require a large amount of time, simply a commitment to keep the guild functioning - for without the officers, we are no longer a guild, and without the committee chairs, we are no longer an interesting group to visit.
Raffle Quilt 2016!

Please see a member of our guild to purchase raffle tickets 6 for $5! The raffle quilt will be drawn at the end of our guild show this year on October 1-2, 2016.
