Quilters' Connection is a dynamic group of quilters and quilt enthusiasts whose stated purpose is to encourage, preserve, and develop the art of quilting. It is made up of 400 quilters in the greater Boston area, and international members from as far away as Japan. Founded in 1977, QC is a nonprofit organization then based in Arlington and now in Watertown, Massachusetts. Meetings are held 8 times per year at the Arsenal Center for the Arts, 321 Arsenal Street, Watertown. In June of each year we hold our annual quilt show, also at the Arsenal Center for the Arts. We perform community service through the production of comfort quilts that are made by members and then donated to organizations assisting the homeless, the ill, the elderly, and children.
We invite you to visit the links at left to learn more about our organization, and to attend our Annual Quilt Show May 30 – June 1, 2014.

Come have some fun for a great cause!

NOTE: DATE CHANGE TO SUNDAY MAY 25th 9 - 4

Sunday May 25th we have a great start to this year’s Memorial Day Weekend! Join us for loads of fun, lots of laughter and creativity galore! Our own, Mike McNamara will be in town from San Francisco! Many of you know him as MAC! He has volunteered to take charge of designing QC’s Charity Quilt for next year! Yea! Yea! Hip Hip Hooray!

We have planned an all-day work session 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM on Sunday, May 25th at the Arsenal Center for the Arts (ACA) - Third Floor (3M) Rehearsal Hall in Watertown.
Bring some fabric: Colors - Let’s be ambitious!  Let's make a two-sided quilt: cool side and a warm side, so side #1 = greens and blues; side #2 yellows, orange, and warm reds. When choosing your fabrics and colors think "plays well with others" - we won't need a ton of harsh neon, strident, eye-strangling colors.

Bring some fabric, sewing supplies and enthusiasm! If you’ve ever seen Mac’s work or taken a class from him, you can expect a lot of fun, some new techniques and a fabulous, awe-inspiring result! Plan to spend the morning, the afternoon, or all day! Feel free to bring a quilting friend! Are you interested? Please email abonsett@rcn.com!
