What we do…

Tidal Threads Quilt and Needlework Guild – WHAT WE DO….. Tidal Threads is more than a quilt guild.  It is a group of ladies who work with their hands – choosing to knit or crochet, make baskets with beach rope, make jewelry using sea glass or handmade glass beads, hook rugs, do embroidery,  chair caning, needlepoint, or make rag rugs.  Here are some of the items we have made over the past few years.


Meeting on a rainy Thursday, Feb. 25

About 9-10 of us made it this morning, despite the heavy rain, thunder and lightning, and wind.  Dawn and I each had quilt tops ready to display, and we worked a bit on our little guild raffle quilted wall hanging.  My blue and red miniature quilts are each 12″ square.  Check out the beautifully pieced points on Dawn’s triangles! Here are some photos from this am.   Mary H. is making her plans to return, and is looking for a ride from Saint John back to Blacks toward the end of April.  She will have specific dates shortly.  Hard to believe that Feb. is nearly over, and that it was 9C above zero this am!   Take care,Martha
