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.

November 8, 2018 Meeting

It was decided that we would have executive reports, then  the awards from the Quilt Show.

For the CQA Guild challenge, Teresa reported that we can use any fabric, that it does not need to be the Kona.  Judy B will find fabric that will be used in the challenge.  Hopefully those that wish to be involved in the challenge will receive fabric at the January meeting.  The challenge quilts are due for the May meeting.

Bonnie H has resigned from being chair of the Comfort Quilt Committee.  Please email Teresa if you can take this over.  Cathy S is willing to help you get started.

Judy B reported that we have 91 members with 3 guests attending this evening.

Edith from Out Reach has asked Rotholme for a family we can give Quilts to at Christmas.  Chad from Meals on Wheels will be here at the December meeting to accept placemats. The placemats can be any size, eg. 10  X 15 or  12 X 16.  These can be any shape, rectangular or square and the placemats can be any fabric including Christmas fabric.  Thank you for your help in making placemats for the December meeting.

Kim from Program has set the January meeting to include 4 demos of different techniques.  Let Kim know if you are willing to do a 15 minute demo of a technique.  January 12 is a Jelly roll workshop with Kelly Richardson.  Cost is $25.00

Librarian Susan C would like suggestions for Library Books.  Email her your ideas or give her a list at the next meeting...

December 1 is a Quilt in day from 9 am to 9 pm.  Bring your own lunch and supper is provided.  Cost is $25.00.  Contact Kim if you would like to attend.

Our December meeting is a top secret Christmas Tea Party. We are collecting toiletries for My Sister's Place for the December meeting.

Co-chairs of the Quilt Show Committee - Mary and Sharon R thanked everyone for the successful Quilt Show.  Everything went very well.  The Tea Room was beautifully decorated and well attended.  The Boutique was very successful and exceeded Mibsie's goal.  All who helped set up and take down were appreciated.  There were 58 Bed Quilts, 41 Cuddle Quilts, 55 Wall hangings, 6 Miniature Quilts and 26 Other items displayed at the Quilt Show.  Thank you to all who submitted quilts for display. The Quilt Show Committee worked hard and even had some fun with the planning etc...   Altogether we made this happen!!
