We had another small group of ladies out during the day to help with our projects and we accomplished a lot! We finished both Biscuit quilts and they are tied.
Also got the bindings on two other comfort quilts.
We decided in the evening meeting that this Snowball quilt would make a great door prize at our show.
Our evening program was about adding borders, demonstrated by Audrey and myself.
We will be having our Guild Retreat on March 11 + 12 and happy to inform you that Wendy from Fabriculous in Swan River will be joining us and setting up a small shop. Please let all your quilting friends know so that stop in an shop too!
We passed a Pot Luck sign up sheet around and if you were not at the meeting but are coming to the retreat just bring a dish and join in! Supper will be around 6:30 on the Friday.
We discussed the idea of making Quilts of Valour quilts as well as quilt for the refugee family that will be coming to Flin Flon. Oh Canada Stonehenge fabrics have been ordered to make these quilts.
Quilt Show Reminders:
-Hoping to have all the Quilt Show Entry forms from the member that are here at the March Meeeting or the April UFO day on April 9. If you out of town the final due date for the forms is April 15.
-We have volunteers to run the Toonie Parade. If you have any items to donate please contact Iris Bailey or Moira McDonald.
- Members are reminded to bring 3 dozen cookies to the show.
-Sign up sheets for quilt show dutes were out and will be again at the April meeting. We hope all member take a few shifts sitting a the various stations we have set up.
We had a discussion on when to hold our next show and the members were open to the idea of having it in the fall of 2018 as so many members are away in the winter which makes preparations difficult. We will have more discussion on this at the next meeting.
