September meeting

This past week has been quite a busy one for me. As some of you may know, I have a son who is now in the 4th grade. With school starting back up it has been a very busy time for me. Sometime I can't believe how hard it is for us to get back into that school time routine.

With the kids back in school and the Holiday season upon us, there was some interest in our last guild meeting about having a discussion on the value of a quilt. There are many blog post across the quilting community on this subject that you may have read. So this month we asked Susan Madu to help lead us on a talk and discussion on this topic.

This Thursday's meeting is also the draw for 2016 Quiltcon Charity Quilt, so please make sure and return all tickets to us.

We also have 2017 Quiltcon Charity Quilt in the works. We will be needing to get all kits back either at the meeting on Thursday or the Sew Day on Saturday, September 17.

Last but not least is the Summer Challenge! I can't wait to see all the beautifully worded creations.

The schedule is:

  • Greeting and updates
  • Talk on The Value of a Quilt
  • Summer Challenge show
  • Show and Tell
  • 2016 Quiltcon Draw

Please bring:

  • Raffle tickets
  • 2017 Quiltcon Charity block kits
  • 5" squares for charity quilts
  • Summer Challenge project
  • a modern quilt for show and tell
  • name tag
Our meeting are held at Wonderfil Threaducation Centre Bay 4, 2915 19th St. NE from 7-9pm on September 15th. Our next Sew Day will be on Saturday, September 17th at the same location as our meetings.
