The third Saturday of March traditionally has been designated

National Quilting Day.  ELIQG has always celebrated with a day of 

sewing or a day of classes.  This year the event falls on Saturday

March 16, 2019.  We are asking guild members to volunteer to teach 

a small "make & take" project at the Old Steeple Church in


Projects should be simple enough for novice quilters/sewers.

Some suggestions might be: a charm for your scissors,

an ornament for your rearview mirror, a tissue case, a pin cushion,

a coffee cup sleeve, phone envelope case or a needle book.

You can choose whatever you would like to demonstrate, but please 

bring the materials needed.  Plan on a rotating group of attendees,

10:00-4:00, so you probably want to provide for about 20 kits.

Interested individuals should contact Anne Albano at 516-334-0466

or email 


One Quilt, One Person, One Camera.  Three minutes!

We will be hosting a Quilt Documentation Day:  A video recording

of a 3 minute story of your quilt, on NQD at the Old Steeple Church.

This will be arranged by

appointment on National Quilt Day and Quilt Alliance Staff

will do some simple edits,  Adding GO TELL IT! and Quilt Alliance

graphics to the video and then upload it to the Quilt Alliance YouTube

Channel!  GO TELL IT! is a project of the non-profit

Quilt Alliance, and it is free for anyone to submit a video.

You can talk about anything you want!  Whatever you think is 

important about the quilt:

What makes it special to you, why you like it, why you don't,

what makes it unusual...the sky's the limit, really!

If you made the quilt, you might talk about inspiration, technique,

or special meaning.  If you inherited or purchased the quilt, you could 

tell us why you love it or how it came to be yours.  If you want to write 

a few notes, or practice beforehand, Go For It!

So, onward to National Quilting Day 2019.
