October 2016 Meeting Highlights

Here is our Cranberry Craft Sale Raffle quilt  that will be drawn on Saturday, Nov 26.  We will have a sign up sheet at the November meeting to sell tickets at the sale. Our Creighton Craft Sale Raffle was held on Saturday Nov 5 and we sold 344 tickets!  Thanks to all that volunteered their time to sell tickets at this event.

Our Guild Retreat was held on Nov 4th and 5th and was a huge success.  We had 33 members join in the fun and we welcomed Shari from Road 17N and her friend Marge from Winkler. So glad they could join us for the weekend and make the drive up.

Our evening meeting had 32 members and during the day we made 12 baby quilts for the Christmas Hampers.

The program for the evening was Different Techniques for Quilting your place mats by Evelyn, Rae and Sandra.

Now on to Show and Tell.

Here are the a few Retreat Bags made at the Highway 10 Designs Retreat in Swan River.

Happy Quilting!

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.
