We had a very small group of members turn up for our full work day at the church.
I suspect a few of them were enjoying sunny weather somewhere else, and I know by the previous post there were a few at the quilt show in Arizona
Twenty three members and 1 guest turned out for the evening meeting.
A newsletter from CQA was received with a challenge for new and renewing memberships. With each membership you can enter your guild for a draw. Starting April 1st there is a Virtual Marketplace on the CQA website with many deals for members and non-members.

The entry for the Northern Juried Art Show on May 16th to the 18th in Churchill MB is almost ready for submission. Thank you to Kathy S for the great quilting job.
Sandra D made a motion to offer the guild project for sale at the Northern Juried Art Show.
The next UFO will be on April 6th from 9 to 4. The cost is $10 per person.
There will be some Stack and Whack projects going on if anyone wants to learn the technique. Bright fabrics with well defined values and pattern repeats of about 12 inches with 8 repeats work best.
Some upcoming quilt shows are in Lethbridge AB on June 14th and 15th. Also in Winnipeg MB on May 24th to the 26th.
The guild is gathering a collection of metallic fat quarters and Moda Marbles or Moda Mates yardage if anyone has some to donate for future projects.
