September 2011

We had 36 members and one guest turn out to our September meeting.
Below our President Kathy proudly displays our new guild table banner, this is one of three.  Which will be used to display our name when we have a table set up to sell tickets or for demonstrations at various community activities.

Our new Mystery quilt for this fall was introduced by Marg F.

The members lined up to select the squares for their paper bag quilt.

The library has some new stencils, the autumn copy of The Canadian Quilter,  and the Sept/Oct issues of the Quiltmaker and Fons & Porter’s Love of Quilting.

43 Touch quilts were donated to the Northern Lights Manor.  Kits to make more quilts are still available.

A reminder was given about the Retreat being held on Friday, September 30 and Saturday, October 1. (Fri 9 am till?? Sat 9-9) We will participate in Culture Days on the Saturday by holding an Open House. Members are asked to bring a finished quilt to put on display.

A table has been booked at the Flin Flon Arts Council Craft Show on November 5 to sell tickets on our Bargello Raffle quilt.

The meeting date for October will be changed to Monday, October 17th due to the flu clinic being held at the church.

The Northern Country Crafters Craft Sale will be held on Saturday, November 5th.  We will be raffling our snowman quilt at the sale.

Here is another one of our quilts ready for a raffle.  
. Audrey demonstrated our new comfort block for October and November called the old Italian block.  later in the evening Marg F demonstrated cleaning and care of your sewing machine.  She also sharpened
scissors at the meeting.  She will be at the October meeting to sharpen scissors again.  The charge is $2.00 per pair.

Our quilt show is this spring and a quilt show committee needs to be set up. Members who are interested in heading up one of the many jobs were asked to sign the sheet.

We will again donate baby and toddler quilts to the Elks for their Christmas Hampers. The guild will make some and donations from individual members are welcome. Items should be turned in by the November meeting.

We will again do the place mats for Meals on Wheels for our Christmas party.  The colour for the fat quarter exchange will be red.

Social Services could use more Kid’s Bags.

Here are the show and tell photos for September

That is Marg hiding behind Flinty.

See you in October.
Happy Quilting.
