Tree Ornaments: The guild committed to a new project in 2015 (and it continues) to support the efforts of our City of Leominster. The Festival of Trees event, held in November, is a community display of decorated Christmas trees that have been donated by local organizations, businesses and groups. These trees are part of a silent auction with proceeds from the Festival of Trees benefiting the Mayor’s Fuel Assistance Program and Leominster events, such as the Winter Stroll, Summer Stroll, and Ladies’ Night Out.
Guild members make and donate homemade ornaments to represent our guild. These are used to decorate the Quilter's Tree, which is given a unique name each year. You can make ornaments all year long and bring them to the guild meetings. The tree is set up just after Thanksgiving. In 2016, the name of our tree was “A Handmade Christmas”. Remember to mark your calendar and take a stroll through Leominster City Hall at the end of November or early December and view all of the beautiful creations. For additional information refer to the Tree Ornaments coordinator listed on the contacts page.
Thank you for your participation!!
2020 Christmas Tree Ornaments Information:
Leominster will be having the Festival of Trees this year at City Hall. We would like to participate as a guild again. We would like the ornaments to be no larger than 5" and made using red, gold, white and/or green or any combination.
The fabric can be red, gold and white combined or all red trimmed in gold, or all gold trimmed in red. Since some members have expressed that they don't have gold fabric, feel free to include green fabric instead. You can deliver your ornaments to the Tree Ornaments coordinator listed on the contacts page or call her to arrange pick up at your home. Pickups or deliveries will be front porch/door for social distance safety. The ornaments need to arrive by November 13, 2020.
