On Thursday, June 12th we celebrated a great LFQG year by having our Annual Banquet. This year's banquet was held at a very unique venue, Fanshawe Pioneer Village. The dinner was held in the Miller Barn. The dinner was very nice (either chicken or salmon) and the dessert was delicious Strawberry Shortcake.

We then walked to the Spriet Family Visitor Centre, where the museum’s collection of quilts and other textiles are stored.

It was a very enjoyable evening and a great way to finish up the guild year. It was great to visit a local attraction that has lots to offer and I plan on going back in the near future.

Congratulations to guild member Lyndsey J. Lyndsey received her Master of Library Science degree from Western University this week. Wow, Lyndsey, you must be a great multi-tasker to quilt and finish a Master's degree at the same time!
To all guild members-have a great summer, keep quilting and remember to take pictures if you have any quilting adventures this summer!
See you in September!
