Amy Friend, the author of Intentional Piecing, will share her new book as well as sample blocks of quilting. Plenty of time for questions and answers about quilting!
Amy Friend is a former museum curator who currently spends her days designing patterns, quilting and sewing. Paper piecing, as well as modern quilt design, bring her the most joy. Her work has been published in several magazines and collaborative books. Her first book, Intentional Piecing published by Lucky Spool, is available in April 2016. She founded the Seacoast Modern Quilt Guild and is a member of the MQG Charity Committee. You can follow her creative path on her blog, www.duringquiettime.com. Amy lives in an old home built in 1835 in Massachusetts with her husband and three children. When she isn't sewing or caring for her family, she loves to garden.

Children's Room receives new shelving for Books on CD
Remember that wonderful Book Launch with Elizabeth Atkinson months ago, supported by the Friends of the West Newbury Library?
Finally, we have had the new shelving installed to the right as you come into the Children's Room. The shelving holds all the books on CD in the Children's Collection. This replaces three spinners! And really opens up the Room!
We thank the Friends, Page School students and teachers, and all of the individuals who contributed to this project!
This is one important and critical step towards the remodeling of the Children's Room. We are hoping to buy mobile shelving so the Room can be used for programming and other activities!
