Not exactly spring yet, but we are not getting snow or freezing rain here, so that’s a bonus. We had a good crowd out yesterday morning, some needles clicking and some silently quilting, with lots of chatter in between. Pauline brought in her first completed quilt top with lots of bright colours. Very impressive! Dawn was working on pressing some tiny half-square-triangles which she had thriftily sewn up from scraps of a previous quilt. See attachments for those pictures. Lots of others are working on socks, shrugs, and items for missions in the knitting department. We invite anyone who would like to put a few stitches in our guild raffle quilt to come on Thursdays with your needle and thimble. It is not quite half quilted, and needs to be completed, with binding, in less than a month.
Just a reminder that each week we depend on your loonies and toonies to keep our coffers full enough to make our church donation. Please don’t forget to put something into the yellow box on the table when you come to guild.
Also, Dawn and I will be off to the Gathering of the Guilds in Moncton on April 22, just a month away. We need items to show off our talents, so please plan to start to bring items next week for us to gather together. This includes not just quilted items, but hooking, knitting, baskets, etc….anything you have completed in the past year or two.
