Sit ‘n Sew – Nov 12, 2016

On Saturday November 12 we hosted a Sit n Sew.  12 members attended and worked on their own projects and slab blocks for the CQA Quilting Bee, in support of Ronald McDonald House.

Enough blocks were made to complete one large quilt top and several more blocks for a second quilt.  Members enjoyed dedicated sewing time, chatting and snacks.

Tonight’s meeting….

Our March Meeting has been rescheduled to March 8 at Knox Presbyterian Church in Alliston. The address is 160 King Street South, Alliston. The time is the same 7 PM.

We will be having Carolyn from Days for Girls, elections, membership renewals are due, the $100.00 UFO draw as well as all the usual things.

Looking forward to seeing you all then!

Road Trip!

As we don’t have a regular guild meeting in January, we wanted to let our members know about two upcoming bus trips. Our guild is planning a shop hop bus trip for Saturday, June 4, 2016 which we hope to offer at a very good price for our guild members. Details will follow at the February and March meetings.

 

We are also pleased to let our members know that Payge Morris from Kempenfelt Guild is finalizing plans for a bus trip to the Quilt Canada Show at the International Centre next June. (Some of you may have met Payge on our last guild bus trip).

 

Here are the details:

Date: Friday, June 17, 2016

Cost: $ 42 – includes bus fare AND show admission

Times: Leaves Barrie at 8:30am (departure location in Barrie to be confirmed), returns from Toronto at 3:30pm

Contact: Payge Morris (paygemorris@gmail.com)

Deadline: January 10, 2016

As the guild doesn’t meet in January, we are asking you to contact Payge directly. Your seat will not be confirmed until your payment is received by Payge. She is hoping to book the larger bus for the trip, but must have enough confirmed attendees by the January deadline in order to do so.

The Quilt Show – video

Becky Goldsmith (of Piece o’ Cake Designs) was recently a guest on The Quilt Show.com hosted by Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims and presented an excellent discussion on colour theory. Alex also presented a free pattern for a three hour quilt top. The episode is only free to non-members until August 23.
