PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE: REGINA APUZZO
Wow!!! What a spectacular 2019 Newtown Quilters’ Guild Quilt Show!!!
What a beautiful sight to behold! Your works of art received rave reviews. Having spent most of my time walking around the show, I can personally attest to those glowing accolades. My favorite show story is about a reporter from “The Advance.” The reporter, Jeff, spoke with us at Newtown Market Day and featured our raffle quilt and upcoming show in that publication. During our interview, Jeff asked me to tell him why someone should go to our show. Hmm. To me, the answer was obvious; but I hadn’t considered that it wasn’t to a non-quilter. My response was that our show is where you can see “real” quilts. I guess that piqued his curiosity, because he stopped by. When I caught up with him, he shared his amazement at seeing these works of art. I’d venture to say that he was like a kid in a candy shop. He asked to speak with some of the quilt makers and to take photos of them with their quilts. One of those interviewed was Rosemary Dwyer. Rosemary made a Dear Jane quilt, and it caught Jeff’s eye. She explained that some 5,000 pieces and some 6,000 cuss words went into making that quilt! Accompanying Jeff as he viewed the show and listening to his comments, I felt that I had answered his question. Now, Jeff knows what a “real” quilt is!
