April 9th, 2015 Meeting

President Micki A. started the meeting with the exciting news that guild members have stepped forward and showed an interest in becoming the chairperson for all of the executive positions for the 2015-16 guild year.  Any other guild members who are interested in chairing an executive position, please contact Micki.

Program Chair Lorna talked about the Canadiana Row Quilt that members having been working on this year.  There were some wonderful examples of some of the rows that have been completed by guild members on display.  It was great to see how each member personalized her own quilt.

Our speaker for the evening was Jennifer Houlden from the Oro-Mendote area (near Orillia, ON).  Jennifer has led an interesting life, living in such diverse areas as the Canadian Arctic and the Australian Outback.  She owns a business called "Quilts by Jen".  Jennifer designs quilt patterns, teaches quilting workshops and makes custom quilts.  Her wonderful trunk show highlighted her use of colour and showed how she has been influenced by the places that she has lived.
