Delightful Surprise!

On June 6th Simcoe Manor hosted a lovely thank you tea for the members of Quilting Corners Guild. Today they invited Pam and I for a delightful surprise, a monetary donation to put towards our quilts.  A big thank you to Wayne and Marilyn, president and vice president, of the Residents Council for their generosity. We will put those dollars to good use and continue to make quilts and share them with others in our community.

Sit n Sew Aug 26

On August 26th, members and guests, of Quilting Corners Guild gathered for a day of community outreach at the 3rd Sit n Sew of 2023. They took on a new focus for the guild to support Gilda’s Club Simcoe Muskoka and make heart pillows and knot bags for mastectomy kits.  The kits will be distributed by Gilda’s Club to local hospitals for patients recovering from breast cancer surgery. Sixteen gals worked at various stations cutting pillow covers and knot bags, stuffing pillow inserts, and sewing covers and bags. Lots of kits were completed and many parts went home to be completed.  A very successful and enjoyable day for an important program. Thank you to everyone who participated and those who prepared and organized the day.
