May Showers?

After a very dry April, I guess none of us can complain that the month of May started with a downpour. Nonetheless, more than thirty of us braved the wet roads and gloomy skies to take in the meeting on Monday, the first of May. The business meeting was brief, full of reminders for upcoming events like the weekend Yard…

April Meeting

April marked the return of evening meetings after four months of getting together in the afternoon. It was so nice to avoid those long dark drives during the winter months. But here we are with Spring and so it is so nice to keep travelling to the meeting in the light of day, though now in the early evening! And…

February Meeting

This fine weather, as cold as it has been of late, has at least ensured clear roads and a good turnout for our monthly Guild meetings. The February meeting was no different - over 40 members gathered to hear about the Guild's busy agenda, to feast their eyes on lots of Sew and Tell items, and to sit back and…

Happy New Year!

With no snow on the roads, there was a great turnout for the Guild's first meeting of 2023 this past Monday. There were almost 50 members in the Church Hall and we had such an interesting meeting. The business part of the meeting was a good chance to catch up on all the events planned so far for the next…

November Meeting

November's meeting took me back to meetings in past years - the hustle bustle of 'normal' meeting activities like signing in, catching up and sharing a laugh with friends, dropping off fat quarters for the draw, signing up for the Sew and Share, checking out the latest books and magazines in the library and trying (unsuccessfully) to get a peek…

Did you make it to the October meeting? If so, you may have been part of the fun, meeting and greeting some of our new members. For those who weren't there - and sadly that includes me this month - here's a first hand account from our Membership and Program Chairs who have kindly stepped in to write about the…

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…

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…
