Next Meeting: Thursday, November 13, 7PM

Guest Speaker Heather Stewart
Heather's original lecture has been changed to a trunk show. Heather Stewart is a quilter who turned her hobby into a profession. Her website says she is a fabric artist, quilt restorer and judge. She has served as a director of the CQA and has taught many workshops at Quilt Canada. She will also return on Saturday, November 15th, for her popular Cobblestones workshop. Places are still available and one can sign up at the meeting or contact Phyllis G. if you are interested, cost is $35.

This month's Secret Notion will be a poppy in honour of the men and women who have served and are serving in the Canadian Forces to protect our country and keep us free. Tickets will also be given for wearing your nametag and chatelaine.

A Harvest of Quilts 2008 Show was a great success! Rose will update us with the final numbers and of course, the winners of the viewer's choice awards will be announced and presented. Winners will be contacted before the show to bring their award winning quilts.

Hands-on Christmas is just around the corner! The executive will be giving workshops at the December meeting for various Christmas decorations. The various decorations will be on display at the November meeting with sign-up sheets. This turned out to be a fun time for everyone, check out last year's pics here.

Other Reminders:
- Postcards for postcard exchange
- 6 inch square of fabric for Lily's Memorial Quilt
- LFQGuild pins, only $5, a great memento of our wonderful guild!
