The LCQG Quilts on the Tay quilt show will be August 5, 6, and 7, 2017. We will have a large assortment of wonderful quilts made by our members.
The block for the Outreach Quilt will be shown at the September 2016 meeting, but the kits won’t be ready until October 2016. You will get one month to complete, because they are hoping to present this quilt to the chosen charity in February 2017. C.
The Fall Retreat will be at the McIntosh Inn, October 11 – 13, 2016.
Welcome back to a brand new year! This year will be an assortment of 12″ blocks. Looking forward to seeing what everyone does with them. First up is a Rail Fence. Lots more to come. C.
This is a President’s Challenge just in time to celebrate Canada’s 105th Celebration. All entries will be hung at our Quilts on the Tay show in August 2017. Viewer’s Choice will become part of the Inter-guild Traveling Display for 2017. The quilt will be no larger than 90″ X 102″, at least half of the quilt should be Red & White, must try to incorporate the Maple Leaf somewhere in your quilt (even if only on the label), and will have the Theme “Our Community – Our Country”. Lots of examples and suggestions are in the Sept. 2016 Newsletter. This Challenge is due at our January 2017 meeting. C.
The hustle and bustle of starting a new year has all departments working hard. Membership has help taking in the flurry of new and renewing members. Block of the Month is starting a new year of fun. Outreach will be showing the block for the Outreach quilt, and kits will be ready in October for members to help out making this quilt. Everyone will have one month to complete, because they are hoping to present the quilt to the chosen Charity in February. The library has new volunteers running it and they had spent the summer getting the Library on line, so that everyone knows what we have. It will hopefully save time when looking for something specific. Sherida Giddings, a Judy Neimeyer teacher, will be our Trunk Show. She is doing a workshop during the day, before the meeting in the evening. Congratulations to all Guild members who entered and won ribbons for quilts, and other crafts, entered at local fairs this past summer. A full list is in September 2016 Newsletter. The LCQG Fall Sale & Luncheon is Saturday, November 12, 2016 from 11 am to 2 pm. We still need lots of donations. C.
