Moving Forward

We have made the decision to hold off on anymore quilting related gatherings for the next two months. The April retreat, meeting and UFO will be cancelled. Time will tell us how to proceed further. We shall regroup in May to make further decisions.

Please keep sewing! Please keep making, creating, dreaming and loving everything about your life!

Think of the show and tell we will have this spring! I can't wait.


Keep moving, get some sunshine and keep your pins sharp!

March Meeting

Our regular scheduled meeting will take place this Tuesday at the United Church. I plan to be there and hope many of you do as well. If you are unwell or unsure, please look to the government of Manitoba website and follow our local regional health authority recommendations. I have included the link for MB updates here from Shared Health ....

Its a wonderful time to be a fabric hoarder!

We had a nice get together this week for our January meeting. 

Our crowd thins out a bit after New Year's as many of our members fly south for the winter. If you have any news or pictures you want to share, please send me an email and I'll be sure to add it here.
