October 8th,2015 Guild Meeting

President Lorna M. started the meeting by bringing us up to date on guild matters.  This included the sad news about the death of long-time guild member Karen W.  A motion was passed by the members to make a donation in Karen's name to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

 Noshi's Talk and Trunk Show was called "Airport Security Stole My Scissors".  Her talk was both funny and informative.  Noshi told us about her experiences as a new immigrant to Canada and becoming involved in quilting in Canada.  She also told us about travelling back and forth every year to India and the quilts that she started in Canada, worked on while in airplanes between Canada and India and then brought back to Canada to finish.  Her Trunk Show was fantastic and was highlighted by her use of colour, both hand and machine quilting and by putting her own spin on traditional quilt patterns.  Her quilts that featured traditional Indian motifs were especially interesting.

We're still having issues with sharing the pictures that are uploaded into the Picassa web albums that store the rest of the photos we've been taking during our meetings. The links are showing up as not available  to people who don't have access to the links, which is really strange. I think google, which is the company that runs both blogger and picas web albums, have changed some of the privacy settings allowing access to their various products.

EDIT: I'm hoping I've found the fix to the photo sharing problem. To view further pictures of Noshi Gulanti's quilts click here.
