May Meeting and Sew Day

Our May Sew Day will be early this year - it will be the weekend BEFORE the meeting.  Sew Day is at Wonderfil Threaducation Centre Bay 4, 2915 19th St. NE, where you can get ideas and inspiration for sewing your pin cushion, or you can bring your own projects to work on Saturday May 13th 10am - 3pm.

Our May meeting will also be at Wonderfil from 7 – 9 pm on Thursday May 18th, 2017. The dues cycle is January-December and they are $50 per person. Members who join after June will pay $30. First meeting is free for visitors, then $5 per meeting (fees could be more for special programming).

The Alberta Quilt Study Society will be kicking off the meeting right at 7pm so be sure to be on time to see them! Also please bring any modern quilting to show in our Heritage Park Festival of Quilts booth. It doesn't have to be quilts - minis, bags, pin cushions will do as well!

The meeting agenda is:
  • The Alberta Quilt Study Society - presentation on documentation of historic Alberta quilts.
  • Guild business
  • The 2018 Charity Quilt
  • Pincushion Swap Collection 
  • New block announcements
  • Show and Tell

Please bring:
  • A quilt or project for show and tell
  • Name tag
  • Your pin cushion for swapping
  • Modern quilting for the Heritage Park booth

And heads up - June will feature a 2 day Sew Event! Save the date Friday June 16th starting at 3pm and Saturday June 17th 10am - 3pm at Wonderfil.
