Sit n Sew News

Our Sit n Sew on March 25 was a success with 18 participants working on Quilts of Comfort, slab blocks for the Great Canadian Quilting Bee and our raffle quilt for the upcoming Stitching Among Friends Quilt Show June 10 and 11th.  Thank you to everyone for a day of fun, sewing and snacks.   Senora

Sit n Sew

On April 9 QCG hosted a successful sit n sew. Nineteen members spent the day working on a variety of quilts of comfort and two raffle quilts in support of My Sister’s Place and Matthews House Hospice, respectively. We were happy to see member Doreen when she popped in for a visit.  Good conversation, snacks and laughter rounded out the day.  Thanks to everyone who participated.

Sit ‘n Sew – September 2015

A nice turn out for our Fall Sit n Sew on Sept 26…14 busy sewing and a good visit with Doreen R who popped in with three quilt tops already done.  In total 18 quilts of comfort tops were completed and several went home with members for some finishing touches.  A good day of sewing, chatting and snacking.
