July Meeting

What a crazy July we are having. I hope you all have been staying dry in this crazy weather and got to enjoy Stampede a little. We had a few members enter their quilts into the Creative Arts and Crafts Competition. We even had a winner or two. Most excitedly our Quiltcon Charity Quilt 2016, Tipi, won 1st place in the Modern Quilt - Piece by entrant, quilted by a second person. Yeah to Us!

So on to what you can expect for July's meeting. We will be having a Prosecco and Chocolate pairing with Invisifil and Decobob.  Bernadette will have an appliqué hand stitching kit for everyone attending the meeting. So, it will be important to confirm your attendance on Facebook event page. Everyone will need to bring their hand stitching supplies - needles, scissors and small pins.  An Invisifil or Decobob thread sample for stitching will be provided.

The Schedule is:
  • Greetings and updates
  • Thread pairing and demo
  • Show and Tell
Please bring:
  • needles, scissors, and small pins
  • A modern quilt for show and tell
  • 5" squares for charity quilts
Our Meetings are held at Wonderfil Threaducation Centre Bay 4, 2915 19th St. NE from 7-9pm on July 21st. Our next Sew Day will be after August's meeting, on Saturday, August 20th.
