February 14 meeting

Our meeting on February 14 is our annual Rummage Sale.  This is how it works.  You decide you have some quilt related items such as patterns, books, fabric, rulers etc that you no longer want.  You then decide to donate these items to the Rummage Sale.  These items are to be pre-priced and the money raised by the sale of these items go to the OutReach program.  Any items you bring that are not sold are to be brought back home by you. Teresa will have Visa and Mastercard available as she will have the square...

March 2 is another Sew in Day for the OutReach programme.  It starts at 9 am and goes to 4 pm.  Edith will have kits etc ready for you to work on.  Last Sew in Day on Feb 2 was very good and Toni quilted 10 quilts that other members prepared for her.  Excellent!

Don't forget to bring: Name tag, Chatelaine  and Notion of the month: Friendship Star blocks for Comfort Quilt Committee

February Notion

I thought it would be a good idea to let you know now that the Notion for the February 14 meeting is Friendship blocks for the Comfort Quilt Committee.  The instructions for this block can be found on the left side of the blog.  I do not think there is a colour preference at this time but if I find out more I will post here and on the Facebook page. Thank you in advance!!

Jelly Roll Rug workshop

The workshop was fun.  It was the longest seam we had ever sewn.  Thank you to Kelley Richardson for her expertise. Kelley is offering classes at Tip Top Sewing Machine Services at 725 Notre Dame Drive Unit #12.

The February meeting is a Rummage Sale.  You bring things to sell and the money goes to the OutReach program.
At the March meeting our speaker is Valerie Wilson.  On March 15 Valerie is doing a workshop called People in Nature from 9 - 4. You will need a photo of a person in nature but not with faces.

Edith reported that we gave 145 placemats to Meals on Wheels.  We have 47 place mats all ready for Christmas 2019.  13 quilts and 33 pillowcases were given to Rotholme.

Susan told us about some new books in the library.  "Bed Runners" "All in One Quilters Reference" and "Quilts from Textured Solids".

Teresa shared that she has the fabric for the CQA Guild Challenge and handed out a fat quarter and instructions to those that were interested.

The January meeting consisted of 3 demonstrations.  Kim demonstrated how to chain piece squares together so you have perfect corners.  Susan C. demonstrated her nifty way of paper piecing.  And Pat demonstrated a few ways to paint on fabric.  Thank you for sharing your great ideas.

December Meeting - Christmas Tea Party

We were greeted at the door and invited to find a seat with a Fascinator  hat on the place setting.  We placed this lovely creation by Lorraine on our heads. The meeting began with some business items:

Once again our guild will be sending some money to Quilt Canada to help sponsor the Viewer's Choice Awards. A motion was put forth and passed.

The London Modern Guild is celebrating their 5th year anniversary on January 12 from 1 - 5 pm.  We are invited to attend at the Boyle Memorial Community Centre at 530 Charlotte St in London.

Kim started her report by welcoming us - the ladies of the Ton -  as Britain's high society during the late Regency was called.  Kim reminded us about the Jelly Roll Rug class on January 12 from 9 - 4 and there are still spots available.  Kim is also looking for another member to provide a demonstration (about 15 minutes) at the meeting on January 10, 2019. We will be able to sign up for the other workshops in the new year.

Judy reported that we are 92 members strong.

Edith was overwhelmed with the amount of place mats that were brought in.  Great job everyone! Chad shared to whom these place mats will be given.  The place mats are given to those seniors that are alone on Christmas day.  These seniors also receive a gift along with the Christmas meal that is gratis.  Edith shared the quilts from our guild that will be given to the family that is leaving Rotholme.

After the business part of the meeting, the High Tea was served.  Excellent job and thank you to all who were part of the Christmas Tea committee.  The sandwiches were yummy and all the goodies were excellent.  The jam and clotted cream to go with the scones were especially delicious.
The games we played were fun and we learned a lot about High Tea.  Prizes were awarded and we each received a gift.  Thank you so very much.
