January 2013 Meeting Highlights

It was a very cold day but 27 members turned out to our meeting in the evening and
we had a very busy day putting together quilt tops.

We tried out a new design board and have decided that the club needs one of their own.

 During the evening meeting:

A thank-you card was received from Families First for the quilts donated to their organization.

The October, 2011 American Patchwork & Quilting and the pattern Coconuts were donated to the library.

The cost for those participating in UFO days will be $10.

Meals on Wheels received 51 placemats, Cree Nations Child and Family Agency received 5 quilts, Flin Flon Child and Family Services 5 quilts and Child and Family services 6 quilts at our Christmas party.

From a discussion it was decided to donate a quilt to a local resident living on her own.

There were 77 quilts in total donated to our community and surrounding areas in 2012.

 Alex B has agreed to stand as our guild vice-president.

Dates for an upcoming guild retreat are being explored. Nadine  made a motion to hold a retreat on March 1st and 2nd, 2013 if space is available. The majority is in favor.

Robin M will book the February UFO.

Quilting With Friends will hold a retreat at Baker’s Narrows Lodge on May 3,4,5, 2013.  They would like 24 participants to take part.  Contact Audrey N for contact information.

Kathy S demonstrated the first step in the cutting and sewing of the Double Trouble Mystery Quilt.

Happy Quilting
