September Guild Meeting was a Great Evening!

Our September guild meeting was a full agenda enjoyed by several guests and our members.  Ruth Kennedy shared her quilt journey and an array of quilts, techniques and stories. As you can see from the pic below, her work is amazing.  Quilt School covered lots of practical tips for organizing fabric and quilting supplies.  There was an update on community outreach and lots of quilts of comfort returned for our December donation.  As always everyone enjoyed snacks, prizes and laughter.

 

 

 

 

 

Sit ‘n Sew a Success

August 19 Sit n Sew was success with 21 members in attendance. A full day of sewing was enjoyed by all, either working on a personal project or a community outreach project or two.  Many took part in a short demo on making liners and bags for the DFG program.  The accomplishments for the day included:
– 6 quilt tops assembled for Quilts of Comfort
– 2 quilt tops bound for Quilts of Comfort
– 2 quilt tops donated for Quilts of Comfort
– 1 quilt top assembled for Mathews House Hospice
– 44 DFG liners completed
– 1 flannel blanket
– 3 flannel scarves.
A variety of kits went home with members as well.
Productive stitching, good conversation, sharing, snacking and laughing. A really enjoyable day.  Thanks to all the participants.  The next Sit n Sew is in October 14, 2017.

Upcoming Sit ‘n Sew and Days for Girls

As there was so much interest in the serged liners for the Days for Girls kits, Senora has tested out the pattern and prepared a demo for Sit ‘n Sew – August 19th at Living Faith Presbyterian Church, Baxter.

If you’re interested in sewing up some liners, please bring your serger along to Sit ‘n Sew. If you have any appropriate flannel you are willing to donate, please bring that along, too. The flannel CANNOT have animals, people, bugs, snakes, camo, military, flags or words and cannot be yellow. It should be a medium or dark colour or print to help disguise stains and should be pre-washed.

There are a few steps in the construction process that require a regular sewing machine, so even if you don’t own a serger, you will be able to help out.

As always, bag kits will be available also.
