October Meeting and Sew Day

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

This month we have an Art Documentation expert coming in to talk about how to photograph your quilts. This will segue into November when Linda talks 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 from the kits you took last month.

The meeting agenda is:
  • Guild business
  • Presentation: Art Documentation - photographing your quilts
  • Collect and award block lotto
  • New block lotto announcements
  • 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

Our October Sew Day  is also at Wonderfil and we're working on Charity Quilts! Bring everything you need to sew Charity QuiltsSaturday October 21st 10am - 3pm.

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).
