Happy New Year 2015

Wishing everyone a healthy, happy, and prosperous New Year.

2015 brings many wonderful events to look forward to.  We celebrate the 25th anniversary of our Guild.  Have you started working on your Guild Challenge Quilt yet?  Our theme of “Doorways to the Silver Anniversary of LCQG – 25 years of Quilting Together” is the task and we have until May to complete your works.

New year is a chance to get inspired with new (at least new to you) fabric.  The next guild meeting is Tuesday January 27th at 1pm and features the annual Stash Sale.  Check the newsletter if you are interested in having a table in the sale and remember to bring your change to purchase some great finds.

November 2014 Meeting Review

A festive fun meeting was held in November with a great turn out and a fantastic presentation from the Kanata Quilt Guild.  The recent Guild sale was discussed (great success despite some local competition for events that day) and some remaining items were available for sale as wonderful holiday items.

Our Library had one of the highlights of the evening (3-2-1, need I say more!) with everyone having a terrific laugh for the wonderful book review presented (great job!)

The ladies of the Kanata Quilt Guild provided many terrific examples, both small and large, of their efforts.   Between Show and Tell and the Kanata Quilt Guild, it was a feast for the eyes.  Below are some of the wonderful works we were privileged to see.

November 2014 Meeting Preview

Our next meeting, and the last guild meeting for 2014 (but not our last event of the year!), is Tuesday November 25 at the Lions Hall at the Perth Fairgrounds.   Don’t forget your name tag, mug, library books, block of the month, outreach blocks, and any show and tell you want to bring.  The annual membership directory will be available for members to pick up and as always, visitors are welcome!

October 2014 Meeting Review

We had a surprise change for the October meeting.  The Kanata Quilt Guild will be coming to do a trunk show for us in November, and we were lucky to have Irene Dewar, our Instructor for the upcoming Red Pepper Jelly workshop, share some of her works with us.

In addition to seeing Irene’s works, we had a full lot of 40 items for our Show and Tell from our members and a glimpse into the first rows from our Block of the Month.  Our newer members who requested name tags were also welcomed as part of the evening.  A reminder to give some thought to the 25th Anniversary Guild Quilt Challenge – and yes, it must include a door in the quilt somewhere.
