Annual General Meeting

Another jam packed guild meeting. This was our Annual General Meeting where the new president, Cathy, received the rule book and guild rotary cutter from now past president, Cheryl.  Also of note the other executive positions will continue status quo. The only position remaining open is vice president.  It is important to have all 7 positions filled in order to continue the hidden planning and organizing required to bring 11 meetings, 4 Sit n Sews, a quilt show and hopefully a mini retreat or workshop to our membership…and outreach to our community partners! So step up if possible.


Passing the ‘torch’…a rotary cutter.


Thanks to the outgoing executive.


Welcome to the new executive…familiar faces, minus a VP!

Community Outreach collected this evening. So proud to be a part of such a productive and phenomenal group of quilters. Thanks very much!

Always in Stitches, Senora😊🪡🧵

October Sit n Sew

On October 15th Quilting Corners Guild hosted our fourth and final Sit n Sew for 2022. 13 members and one guest, our friend Karen from Thunder Bay, worked together to make quilted Christmas stockings for our various outreach partners. These are always productive days of sewing, learning and chatter. The total count for the day was 63+ stockings, including the demo samples, the daily work and a few in progress. Well done ladies!
Always in Stitches, Senora😊

 

Sit n Sew – July 9, 2022

Our second Sit n Sew this year was a hit, with 11 members and 3 guests in attendance. Today’s  focus was Quilts of Valour or a project of choice. The QoV accomplishments included 60 log cabin blocks, the 5th poppy quilt top is nearing completion, the blocks for 1 zig zag quilt are made and Cheryl spent the day stripping…fabric for a bargello quilt. Other accomplishments included cloth youth bags, a top of 4 patches and an exploding heart. Snacks, a communal luncheon and lots of laughter were enjoyed by all. A very nice day!  Our next Sit n Sew day is August 27th.
Always in stitches…Senora🧵

 

 

First Sit ‘n Sew Day in Over 2 Years!

Ten gals got their machines out and their hands busy at our first Sit n Sew since the Fall of 2019. We had a lovely day assembling 4 Quilts of Valour tops from the over 130 poppy blocks created by members over the last few months. Those will be kitted up this week and off to some of our longarmers for quilting. We also worked on 3 other QoV tops and a QoC.  Thanks to everyone who attended today and those who contributed to the block making. Another productive activity for Quilting Corners Guild.

March 2022 AGM

Thank you to everyone who attended our delightful in person guild meeting last evening. It was so nice to see so many out for a full meeting. Our new executive is in place, lots of Show n Tell, Community Outreach and raffles. Lots of fun! And a moment of recognition for Ukraine. 🌻

Dianne and Cheryl exchanging the rotary cutter and rules book as Cheryl takes on President for 2022-2023.  Many thanks to Dianne for holding down the Prez position for two years and guiding us through the Covid experience.

Dianne thanking the Executive for their support and commitment over the last two years.

AGM – 2020

We had our AGM last evening, holding elections for our 2020/2021 year.  Cathy D carried on our tradition of passing the fancy rotary cutter on to the new President, Dianne W.  We would like to thank Cathy for taking the lead as President and her ongoing contributions to executive in the role of Past President.
The second executive position to change for the upcoming year is Membership Coordinator. It is with sadness we say goodbye to Judy W who has admirably carried out this role for a number of years now. We will miss her attention to detail, connection to members and her sense of humour.  We welcome Jill L to executive as our new Membership Coordinator and look forward to working along side her.
The third position that has a new executive member is Vice President, since Dianne is now the big P. Altho this member requires no introduction to executive, as she has much experience in this capacity. We welcome Cheryl D as Vice President and look forward to her continued leadership and innovative ideas.
The remainder of executive is status quo: Janice S-E, Treasurer, Siona W, Secretary, Senora Baldry, Community Outreach. We look forward to another busy, fun-filled year working together on behalf of Quilting Corners
Guild members.
Always in Stitches, Senora😊
