NEXT MEETING - Thursday, October 13, 2011

The next meeting of the London Friendship Quilt Guild will be held on Thursday, October 13, 2011 at 7:00 p.m. at St. George's Presbyterian Church. Our guest speaker will be Kathy Wylie and her lecture will be entitled "Beauty is all Around". Check out Kathy's web site here.

On Friday, October 14, 2011 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Kathy will be teaching a workshop on her Sewflakes method of applique. Remember the fun we used to have making paper snowflakes in elementary school? Now you can do the same and quilt your snowflakes! Here is the link for one of her classes and at the top right of the page is a supply list to give you an idea what you'd need for the class. There are a few spaces left in the class ($35.00 for members; $45.00 for non-members of the guild).

Pillowcases and Kid's quilts will be accepted at each meeting and there are usually kits or quilts to finish available from Penny and Edith.

Notion of the Month is apples for the Food Bank.
