Speaker Schedule / Other Meeting Activities
Although we had the Quilt Clinic this past fall, which was held by two “quilt nurses”, and as our intrepid activities coordinators have met or talked with many speakers who wish to do a Zoom talk or require us all to wear masks, we have decided to reach out to our membership to do workshops, tell us about their quilting experiences, and perhaps do trunk shows – if they have not given away all their quilts!
Our usual month for a Social – no speaker, lots of refreshments and sharing of finished quilts/bags/table runners and other quilt-y items.
February 20th 2022
Our own Ros Rock gave a trunk show featuring her quilts. There were also many quilts shown by members. Thank you to Ros for a wonderful show.
March 20th 2022
The March guild meeting will be held in the church gymnasium. We will have a couple quilting-related games to play, so bring your 6 floral fat quarters – or you can purchase 6 at the Corner Collectibles, as it will be open. Refreshments will be served (beverages and cookies) and if you are participating in the UFO challenge, bring your first completed UFO – or anything else – for Show and Tell. There is also the Quilt Skills project, and for this month your quilt block is to include 2 different size or shaped triangles. This is Number 7 of the Quilt Skills project begun in September 2021.
April 10th 2022
We will again be in the church gymnasium. Members are requested to bring their favourite sewing/quilting gadget – or perhaps a gadget they thought looked like a good idea but have never used! There will be demonstrations of some gadgets by members and time to socialize. Quilt Skills # 8 block is applique – hand or machine-stitched. And as ever, we will have Show and Tell.
We have a speaker this month, Sheri Cifaldi-Morrill, and she requests that we all wear masks in the church while she is there. We have agreed to accommodate her on this point. Check your newsletter for any and all updates. This month we will also be electing new officers and approving the budget for Sept 2022 – June 2023. And the last of the blocks (# 9) for Quilt Skills is to be paper-pieced, due in June. Hand or machine-appliqued quilt skills will be shown at the May meeting.
The June Social – refreshments, an auction of sewing items, our 2nd UFO reveal and – as the name implies – lots of socializing. This is the last meeting of the year until our September “Welcome Back” meeting.
