Welcome! Maine Modern Quilters

2017 October 16
by Linda

The Vestry was filled with quilters

from all over the state on Saturday, October 14.  They are the Maine Modern Quilters–among them Sharon Vandermay and Ellie Fellers–and they are scheduled to meet here several times over the  few months. 

How thankful we are for Paul Russo’s thorough re-design of the Vestry wiring back in 2008–plenty of power for all 26 sewing machines and several irons!   The quilters spend the morning sharing their works-in-progress, and the afternoon learning a new skill/pattern or doing a mystery project.

Singers and Ringers

music isSanctuary Choir rehearses at 7 pm on Wednesdays.  Singers of all voice groups are welcome to join in the fun and fellowship.  At each rehearsal we do several voice (and brain) warm-ups before we launch into the anthems.  There is laughter, sympathy, prayer, and sometimes sweet treats at the end.  We also keep a calendar on the wall so singers planning to be away can pencil in their dates.  C’mon.  You know you want to!

Handchime choir rehearses at 6 pm on Wednesdays.  We could easily use a few more people.  Ideally, each ringer has only two or three bells, and some of our regulars have been juggling 5 or 6…so, yes, there’s room for you.
