Meeting May 12, 2016
Good day everyone,
A good number of ladies attended yesterday, and a lot of work and chatting got done. Nancy McH brought her large queen size quilt that she has finished hand quilting! She worked hard all winter to get it done. A few of us helped her choose the binding fabric. Mary H. brought her hand-pieced and hand quilted (with large stitches) hanging in the Apple Core pattern. Hilda was knitting a cute hat with an octopus on top, Nancy mcH had a lovely hand painted wooden bowl from Joan F, and I brought a kid’s quilt top (I Spy) to send on to Ft. McMurray, AB, when the time is right.
At coffee time Mary H. discussed the show, and passed around a sign up sheet just for an idea of how many items we might have on display. I will be circulating printed forms for more formal registration of items, and Nancy will print up the tags for the items. Beverley Parker will chair the refreshment committee. Mary will circulate a schedule to make sure the kitchen and admission desk are covered. We also discussed the small room, and it was agreed that it would house a small memorial display to honour Gladys Leighton, and the other part of the room would be a display and explanation of “Tools of the Trade”….. gizmos that members find particularly helpful with their craft. So be thinking about what you can contribute to that effort please.
We also decided that we will continue the 9:30 am start to our gatherings on Thursday, as more people come then than at 9 am as we have done in the past.
