Boutique items for pre-sale!

The Guild’s 2021 Quilt Show Boutique is pre-selling a number of items for the Christmas market, on a limited basis.  Be sure to check back for new items, as they are added.


First out of the gate:


Wheelchair quilts approx. 24” x 41”. Cotton tops, flannel backing, machine quilted, includes a handwarmer and a pocket.  The bottom corners tapered to avoid catching in wheels. $25 each. To purchase, refer to the quilt number on the photo.  These would make a wonderful gift for our wheelchair friends or to donate to your favourite long-term care/retirement facility, especially given the current circumstances. 

Twiddlemuffs help reduce anxiety for people with dementia by keeping restless hands occupied.  It provides a wonderful source of visual, tactile and sensory stimulation and keeps hands snug at the same time.  Each twiddlemuffhas hidden soft items inside, perhaps not evident in the pictures.  $ 10 each.  An amazing price! Note:  We will do our best to match colour choices but cannot guarantee choice. You will not be disappointed!

Christmas stockings approx. 8”. $1 each.  These are great little items to fill with sweets, homemade goodies, or that special gift.

All items are available for pickup by emailing sarmstrong18@rogers.com Payment options to finalize purchase: E-transfer to treasurer.lfqg@yahoo.com, preferred, credit card, cheque options available in exchange for the item.

Library

As you may be aware, the Guild is making every effort to provide the usual services to the membership.  The Guild's Library has been inventoried and an updated listing of items is available on the Blog for you to see what is available. It is hoped during the month of September that we will have access to the Church and the Library.  Once arranged, I will send details on how you can again safely borrow.

The Library has many, many valuable resources and new books will be ordered to stay current with new trends and information (within budgetary restrictions, of course).  The Executive approved guidelines for the Library this past month and a copy is herein included, for your information.

Please contact me if you have any questions.  Be well.....

It is a fast turn around, so please participate as best you can. There are drop off instructions for the TVDSB but if you need assistance with that please contact Sharon R. selaine@outlook.com

Important Notice from the Library

An inventory was recently completed of all the books currently in the Guild's Library. Unfortunately, there are a number of books that cannot be located. Please take a look at home and see if you have any of these Missing Items. If you have any LFQG books in hand, please contact Sharon G. at sarmstrong18@rogers.com. Your assistance is greatly appreciated!

There will also be more details coming in the new membership year on lending Library items on a limited basis. Of course safe practices are always the concern as we continue this new way of living. You can find the Library catalogue on the blog as well. 

Take care, stay safe, and please contact me if you have any questions.
