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.
Gearing up for our December 1st meeting and our presentation to My Sister’s Place. In total, with our November contributions, we have:
🎅🏻 5 Cloth Books
🎅🏻 33 Stockings
🎅🏻 23 Santa Sacks
🎅🏻 32 Quilts of Comfort
If you have stockings or sacks ready for December, please bring them along. Should be a fun evening – taking pride in our work, potluck and QUILTO – bring those loonies and toonies to buy your cards. Proceeds collected will go the the local food bank.
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. Looking forward to the next Sit n Sew.
