February 13th Quilting Bee

January 28, 2017

The Charity Program is well underway with our first Quilting Bee on February 13th at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Leamington.  We will start at 9 am and continue until 2 pm, so bring a bag lunch and expect to have a lot of fun.  The Charity we will be working for is the Dialysis Unit at the Leamington Hospital.  Bring your sewing machine, rotary cutter and mat.  Kits will already be assembled, but we may need more embellishments from the extra fabric that will be provided.

For those who want to work from home, the measurement for these lap quilts is 45″ wide X 60″ long.

We look forward to spending the day together!

October 18, 2016 Guild Meeting

October 23, 2016

The evening proved to be idea inspiring with Robin Bogaert’s trunk show–“My Quilting Journey”.    What a great presentation!  Beautiful quilts from beginning to end.  Robin showed us quilts that were class samples from her days as owner of Borders Quilting & Sewing, in Windsor.  Quilts she made just for fun, quilts she made during workshops she had attended and even quilts from a recent “Quilt Magazine” publication.  You should check out her website at http://www.quiltingintheloft.com which was just named as one of the top 100 quilting blogs.

We all wished Rosemary Uiberlacher a very happy birthday as she turns 70 this month.

Deb Ferguson shared her President’s Challenge for 2017 which is a wall hanging or
quilt made out of reds, whites, creams or beige with the accent colour being black. It must include flying geese and maple leaves.

Don’t forget about next months Christmas Party, some of the info is as follows:
When: November 15, 2016
Where: Kingsville Golf & Country Club, 640 County Rd 20
Time: Doors open at 5pm, Dinner at 6pm
Cost: $31

THE DEADLINE FOR PURCHASING TICKETS IS OCTOBER 30.

See Kathy Wiper and or Shirley Lowes to reserve your table and purchase tickets.
This year’s recipients of our annual Christmas good works will be the clients of the
Meals on Wheels program in the Kingsville/Leamington area. We are asking for
placemats (12” x 18”) to be given to people with their meals. The placemats can be
any design, but we ask that they not be seasonal, so that they can be used daily
throughout the year. It is a great way to use up your scraps and stash. Hopefully, we
can donate two to each person, so that when one is dirty, they can still have one that
is usable. Placemats will be collected the evening of the dinner. As is customary with
the guild, we will be collecting canned goods and toiletries for the St. Vincent de Paul
Society. Please be generous, as there is a great need in our area.
Raffle – Do you want to win a beautiful quilt or a basket full of wonderful gifts?
Tickets will be available the night of the dinner.
Tickets are $1 each or 10 for $5.
As usual, bring your lovely quilts for Show and Tell at the dinner.  We hope to see you all there for a fun and enjoyable evening!

The next general quilt guild meeting will be January 17, 2017 with Sue White as vendor and Jackie Cooper’s trunk show presentation.

September 20-2016 Guild Meeting

October 4, 2016

The evening was informative to say the least on the presentation for Guatemala Hope.  I’m sure all members present found out something they didn’t previously know.  A thank you goes out to all who donated material to the Guatemala Hope effort.

We would like to welcome our newest additions to the executive board: Penelope Quick as Secretary, Franny Chartrand for taking on Charity,  Bev McKay for membership and Licia Cipkar as our Historian.   We appreciate you giving  your time and efforts to get involved with your guild!

We had 8 new members join the guild in September to bring our total number of members to 120.  Way to grow!!  Lets hope we keep enticing new members to join our quilting community because as we all know, the more the merrier!

Our next general guild meeting will be held on October 18, 2016 at 7 pm.

 

 

August 16-2016 Guild Meeting

August 16, 2016

Tonight’s meeting was a busy, but fun all around meeting.  We listened intently to Jan Bergeron speak on the topic of Quilts of Valor.  She presented some great ideas for us all to work on if interested in donating a quilt for a great cause.  There are photos in our Show and Share section to view.

The charm pack game was a big hit!  Everyone seemed to be having a good time playing the game.  Hopefully we all got some ideas from our squares acquired from the game for new projects to work on.

Glad to see quite a few of our members renewed their memberships for the upcoming year in time for the draw deadline for one of the two free memberships being drawn in September, along with a few new members.  Welcome to our new members!

The treats were a big hit.  Many asked for the recipe for the Rice Krispie Rolls, so, we decided to post the recipe:

RiceKrispieRoll

Hope you all enjoy!  See you at our September Guild Meeting, on Sept. 20th:)
