November Meeting and Sew Day

Our November meeting will be at Wonderfil Threaducation Centre Bay 4, 2915 19th St. NE from 7 – 9 pm on Thursday November 16th 2017.

This month we have Linda Schmidt talking about how to get your quilt accepted into a show (spoiler, you need a good photo!).

We are also still continuing to run the Charity Table.  This has been hugely successful and has massively offset the costs required to fund both the charity quilts for Sonshine and the QuiltCon Charity Quilt. Bring in anything you have that you won't use that you think someone else might love to take home.  In the past this has included patterns, magazines, notions, fabric (whole, scraps, selvage).  Don't forget to bring the already-completed pieces of the Charity Quilt.

The meeting agenda is:
  • Guild business
  • Presentation: Getting your quilt accepted into a show - Linda Schmidt
  • Collect and award block lotto
  • December Swap announcement
  • show and tell
Please bring:
  • A quilt or project for show and tell
  • Name tag
  • Block lotto entries
  • Charity Table donations
  • Completed Dresden Plates and Rail Fences for the Charity Quilt
  • 2018 dues - cash or electronic (fees apply)

Our November Sew Day  is also at Wonderfil and we're working on Charity Quilts! Bring everything you need to sew Charity Quilts Saturday November 18th 10am - 3pm. NOW RESCHEDULED to December 2!

The dues cycle is January-December and they are $60 per person in 2018. Members who join after June will pay $35. First meeting is free for visitors, then $5 per meeting (fees could be more for special programming).
