Liberated Baskets Workshop and Program Information



On Saturday January 16th, a group of quilters met at St Georges Church for a workshop on Liberated Baskets with Gail McHardy-Leitch. We all learned to create baskets with machine appliquéd bias handles but the resulting blocks were quite unique. To see more pictures of the workshop, please click on this link to Gail’s blog http://thecozyquilter.blogspot.ca/2016/01/liberated-baskets-workshop.html
There are several workshops coming up in the next few months. On Saturday Feb. 27th Charlene O’Donnell is leading “The London Caper”, a guild challenge day which is sponsored by Northcott Fabrics. “We don’t want to give them too many details and spoil the surprise,  but we can promise a day of mystery, challenges, fun, fine dining and prizes.” The challenge is one that can be enjoyed by all skin levels and the cost for the day is $25.00.
On Friday March 11, All Cote is leading a Quilted Rug workshop. All is a fibre artist and innovated teacher from the Niagara region. Participants in the workshop will create “one of a kind” quilted rugs using several layers of fabric, fabric marker, scissors and decorative stitches and embellishments. The cost of the workshop is $40.00. For more information about Al Cote and his Quilted Rug class, check out his website at http://www.imaginationtextile.com/#! 
Finally, although June seems so far away, sign-ups have already begun for our bus trip to Quilt Canada on Saturday June 18th. This year, Quilt Canada is being held at the International Centre in Toronto. The cost of the bus trip is $75.00 and includes admission to the show, dinner on the way home and all taxes and gratuities.
