So what do we do now in the Winter of 2021? 

You may be wondering what happened to our yearly Georgetown Working League quilt. In March of 2020 we suspended our "in person" Monday quilting meetings. As we faced the COVID-19 pandemic, it quickly became apparent that our quilt raffle and annual Working League Fair would not be happening. Not to be be deterred by a once in a lifetime worldwide public health threat, we masked up, socially distanced, and began passing the pieces of the quilt to individual quilters to work on the project at home. We named our quilt "A Year In Maine."  This quilt was intended to be a celebration of Maine's 200th Anniversary, and will still be so in the year 2021.  (see below)

So what do we do now in the Winter of 2021? We turn to the wisdom of Maya Angelou . . .
"Hoping for the best, prepared for the worst, and unsurprised by anything in between." 

 From I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings

Whether we have our traditional fair in August or a hybrid, the drawing for the quilt will take place on Fair Day, Saturday August 14th. Please help us to raise funds for our gifts to town organizations and services, and of course to maintain our ability to award scholarships to our brilliant Georgetown students. Thank you!


Happy Birthday, Maine!

In March of 2020 the State of Maine celebrated its Bicentennial. Below is a quilt block handstitched by Linda Hjortland. Linda chose to honor this milestone with her calendar month of March in our "A Year In Maine" quilt. The hand embroidery is exquisite against the background of the State of Maine
