Monthly meetings

Starting the year in vintage style

September's meeting was a taste of meetings past - lots of members (over 45 of us!), raffle tickets, the fat quarter draw (with Betty L. taking the prize), a brief business meeting and Sew and Share, and a sneak peek at this year's Challenge Quilts - all followed with a great program to introduce another year of quilting activity. Let's…

Hello September!

Hello to the last days of summer and to those crisp mornings and evenings that are getting us ready for  Fall. For many, this is a favourite time of year. That is certainly true for me. After the long lazy days of late summer, September is a wake up call - back to school, back to regular routines, and back…

The August long weekend is straight ahead - where is the time going this summer? Don't forget that Saturday, July 30th is our second annual Outdoor Quilt Day - a day to showcase your love of quilts by hanging one, two or more somewhere outside so that others have the chance to enjoy the colours and the craftsmanship on display.…

On The Road Again…

Summer days and road trips go hand in hand. For me, that means heading out on shop hops, near and far, especially after two summers of covid 'hibernation'. High gas prices make this a bit more of a challenge this year, but hard to resist the lure of a quilt shop visit. Am I right? Many of you have already…

Annual General Meeting June 2022

After our second year of pandemic restrictions, it was great to have our Annual General Meeting in person with over forty members present. As members entered, they ran the gauntlet of handing in current membership forms, paying their dues for next year, picking up postcards and posters to share the news of our upcoming quilt show and picking up their…

May Meeting

About thirty or so Members made it to the in-person meeting on May 2. Unfortunately, the hybrid format has posed us some issues. That's something we can work on – with declining case counts, perhaps more of us will be able to make our way back to in-person events in the coming months. Zoom has been a lifeline for many…

In like a lamb?

Hopefully this photo of Pam W.'s Snowflake is the last we see of the white stuff for a while. According to the weather gurus, March came in like a lamb – nice and quiet. That might be true for the weather but certainly doesn't describe the level of activity in our Guild. Our activity level continues to stay more lion-like…
