The London Friendship Quilters Guild is a non-profit organization whose aims are to promote an appreciation for the art and craftsmanship of patchwork and quilting; provide educational opportunities in the art of quilting; and provide a forum for friendly exchange of ideas and information.
A small, but enthusiastic group of us met on Saturday for some time for sewing, quilting, fun and conversation. It was great to see some quilty friends mid-summer.
Mother and daughter, Lyndsey and Lorraine. Cindy,
Susan and Edith,
and Gail were just a few of those attending.
I hope everyone has been having a fabulous summer, so far.
The guild is hosting a summer sew-in day at the church this coming Saturday, July 22nd. The times are from 9am to 4pm. There will be outreach projects there to work on, or you are more than welcome to bring your own. Also, bring your own lunch. If you can’t be there for the whole day, feel free to drop in for an hour or two. Maybe bring a hand work project and sit and visit for an hour or two.
Edith is asking for those attending to bring back any outreach projects that you have that may be finished.
Hope to see lots of people on Saturday, and have a chance to catch up on what’s happening. See you then.
On June 27th, 2017, Lorna M, Bonnie H, and Cathy S attended a meeting of the Resident’s Council at Parkwood Hospital, Western Counties Wing where the veterans live. We presented the council with the poppy quilts that the guild made for the palliative care rooms. They were very gratefully received. We were able to get some pictures of the quilts in place in one of the rooms, along with the lady who is president of the Veteran’s resident council. Thanks, so much to Carol Miller for approaching us to do this project. And also, a huge thanks go to our guild for supporting this cause and to all who worked on the quilts. Great job, everyone! To see more photos of the quilts in place in the room, go to our group photos page here.
