September 2016 Meeting Highlights

We had a busy guild day this month and were able to bind 3 quilts and piece two tops during the day. We had our Friendship Star draw and the guild won so we have a fun quilt to put together next month.   
The binding is now on our first Hunters Star quilt that will be raffled at the Creighton Craft sale on Saturday, Nov 5.  

We also completed our four Quilts of Valour and they will be sent to the Manitoba coordinator to be distributed to wounded Canadian soldiers.

Our Yellow Brick Road quilt was quilted by Marg F and the binding stitched on by Lorna H.  This quilt will be going to the new Family Room at McIsaac School.

Our Ice Cream Cone quilt was quilted by Sandra D and will make a great comfort quilt for a little one.

Our Bow Tie quilt was quilted by Sandra S and will be donated to the CWL for their fall Bazaar in thank you for lending their cup and saucers to our quilt show.


  • Saturday, Oct 22 will be a Comfort Quilt Workshop as well as a Beginner Class at the Church.  We will have a project picked for the Comfort quilt and reveal it at the October meeting.
  • Guild Retreat will be Nov 4 and 5th and we will have a vendor.  Shari from Road 17 N will be joining us and setting up shop so please spread the word.
  • Nov 5 is also the Creighton Craft Sale and we will need volunteers to sell tickets. We will pass a sign up sheet around at the October meeting.

Our program for the evening was quick Placemats demonstrated by Marg F.

August 2016 Meeting Highlights

We had a busy day working on our two Hunter Star Christmas raffle quilts.  We finished piecing the first one ( shown above) and the second one is in the block stage and should be finished next month.
We also basted four quilt top and those all left with members to quilt over the next few months!  I'm so happy to see these quilts going out to be quilted by our members, this is the best way to practice your quilting skills!

I will be offering a fall Beginner Class at our October 22 UFO day for those that could not make it to the spring class. It will still be a regular UFO day for our members as I only have 3 students in the class so far so we won't take up much room!

Our Program for the evening was Binding demonstrated by Phyl Broughton.

Now to our Show and Tell!

Hope you are all having a wonderful summer!
Happy Stitching!

The 'Oh Canada" quilt is now done for the Syrian family and it was lovely to meet the mother of the family at our UFO day in July.   Sandra S. took the quilt after our meeting to give to the family.
We had a busy guild day working on quilt tops as well as a great afternoon workshop lead by Marg Faktor in the Reflection quilt.  Marg also demonstrated it at the evening program.

The guild had another finish,  the baby Quarter Sections quilt from our Beginner Class in June.

All our UFO and Retreats dates are booked until the end of December, the list is on the right had side of this page.
Don't forget Marg is sharpening scissors at our August Guild day but only during the day, not at the evening meeting.  Each pair sharpened only $2.
