March 2017 Meeting Highlights

We are starting to get the Paper Pieced blocks back and they are looking great!

We had a very special guest at our March meeting.  A big congratulations goes to Sheri and Sean on the arrival of their daughter Darby!  Those of us that were there in the afternoon got to hold this precious bundle, she is such a sweet baby!  We are all looking forward to having her visit our sewing days and watching her grow!

Our Guild Retreat will be on Friday, April 7th and Saturday, April 8th.   We will have our usually Pot Luck supper on Friday at 6pm.  If you were not at our March meeting to sign up for an item please feel free to bring any dish.

Wendy from Fabriculous will be at our retreat and setting up a small shop. If you need anything from her shop please call Wendy to see if she can bring what you need.  The shop phone number is 204-734-5662.   She will also be teaching the Necessary Clutch Wallet Class on Saturday.  The guild is covering the cost of teaching and you just need to buy your own supplies, pattern and fabric. If you are interested in taking her class please let Kathy know ASAP as Wendy needs to know how many kits and patterns to bring.  You will be able to shop for fabric for the wallet on Friday and the class starts at 9:30 am on Saturday so please be there to set up at 9am.  

Wendy will also be doing a fun Nifty Notions demonstration for us Friday night.

We are also planning on trying a new game so if you want to participate please bring three 2 1/2" x WOF (wide of fabric) fabric strips.  Lets make them colourful!  The winner of the game wins all the strips of fabric, winner takes all! 

Audrey had new quilt labels made for our comfort quilts and they turned out very nice.  They include our logo, location and washing instructions.

The evening Program was the Dresden Plate and Audrey was showing us how to use the EZ Dresden ruler that is in the guild library.

 Now to our Show and Tell.

Happy Stitching Everyone!
