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…

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…

February, a LOVEly month!

What's not to love about February!  OK, OK, besides the weather! This is the month that brings us Valentine's Day to remind us how much we care about friends and family.  February is also the month when we see that first - very early - glimmer of spring. Days become longer - hey, it's still light at 5 pm and…

A New Year Begins

Well, we have left 2021 behind us - yet another challenging year. Surely 2022 willbe a turning point. Our hopes are high for some kind of 'normal' this year with the prospect of regular in-person meetings and get-togethers as we move through the spring, topped off with a stellar quilt show in the fall.  For now, thank goodness for Zoom and…

Merry Christmas!

Tis the season to be jolly - and to be oh, so busy baking, finishing up those last minute sewing projects and getting ready for Santa's visit. Hopefully, this rather tardy blog post finds you with everything done, wrapped and under the tree. Not even close at our house, but maybe at yours? The Guild has had a busy month.…

Happy Thanksgiving!

Sunflower runner by Donna V. It's October already and Thanksgiving is looming just around the corner. Hopefully, many of us will be able to spend the holiday weekend with family and/or friends. If that's not possible, at least enjoy the long weekend in this lovely fall weather or spend some time playing with fabric in your sewing room. Our second…
