July

Our July meeting had quite a few members and a few guests out. We are never sure how many chairs to put out in the summer but as you can see by this show and tell, the room was fairly full. 

We had some discussion about our fall retreat (sorry, fall is around the corner!) and decided on a catered affair again. It is so nice to just sit and sew and have wonderful people come in and feed you! We love a potluck but honestly, not having to wash dishes has wonderful benefits. We did decide to cancel the UFO for August as it runs along the long weekend. There are lots of community events in Flin Flon during August and we didn't want to miss anything!

On to show and tell .....  

Helen had some sweet help showing off her grand kids quilts. 




Evelyn has been busy sewing for a new great grandchild about to make his or her entrance


Rae showing off her two beauties.


Audrey has been busy this summer .... look at that beautiful smile !!







Yvonne has been busy making bags again


Here is a shot of my scrappy summer table runner



Lorna is demonstrating some of our guild makes. 


I'm modelling my scrappy log cabin.

These three log cabin variations are the Quilts of Valour quilts we will be donating to the organisation. We will send a total of five.




Sandra gave us a spirited demonstration of the pineapple block and ruler.

Lynne models some quilt made by the guild. This white and blue beauty will be raffled off at one of our Christmas sales. The others are yet to be determined.




More from Evelyn for that new baby on its way 



Not sure if I'm a season ahead or two behind


Gladys uses every last piece!



June models some sweet kids quilts



Me again ....


Sandra got a head start on her one foot art challenge


June again ....


Evelyn with some sweet mug rugs


Until next month ....

Wheelchair Quilts



Three beautiful people here with our wheelchair quilts we made and donated to the local care homes.


The wheelchair quilts were quick to do and fun to make up. Quite often, when the care home residents go on outings, they get chilled. Think of hot days, with blasts of cold air conditioning in cars or in the handi-transit bus .. these sweet little throws are the right size as to not get tangled in moving wheels and provide just the right coverage to offer some dignity.

Mr. McKeen was a good sport and handsome model for us! Thank you Art! Thank you Lorna and Sandra for taking on this project.

June Meeting Highlights

There was quite a big turnout at our June meeting with lots of show and tell for you to see. I'm sorry I missed the meeting and thank Sandra for taking pictures. I'm sorry I missed the meeting and commentary on our pictures this month. Part of show and tell you see is 'Show' and 'Tell' ... sorry, I missed the 'Tell' portion this month!
























We have a UFO planned for Saturday, July 6th. I hope you can make it!
