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.
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!
Lanark County Quilter’s Guild Christmas Sale & Luncheon is Saturday, Nov. 15, 2014 from 11 am to 2 pm at the Glad Tidings Pentacostal Church, 160 Wayside Drive, Perth, Ont.
A friendly reminder to those who volunteered to provide food was included in your October meeting folder.
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.
This Tuesday, October 28th, is our next Guild meeting. Our guest will be the Kanata Quilt Guild to share some of their works with us. Meeting starts at 7:00pm.
