30th Anniversary Gala

The evening was a great success and it was so much fun to see all the “first” quilts and hear quilting stories from all our members and guests.

A good crowd

Finished project!

An awfully nice “sample”!

There were over 20 of us gathered around the table at lunch. Barb did a little “Show and Tell” about the Nuno felting class that was held on Texada over the weekend. Barb came away with a “sample” and a finished product – most of us figure she has two finishes. Click on the photos for a better look.

It was nice to have Barb K back in the hall with us and she has a lovely new “do”. We were happy to have her sister, Trudi, visit us after a two-week holiday in Hawaii. Trudi put up with a lot of teasing about going home (to Ontario) to a lot more snow that we have here. Although I must say it didn’t feel a lot like Spring today!

This is your reminder about the quilt show meeting Thursday at 6 PM and the business meeting following at 7 PM. Temporary labels and bags for quilt show entries will be ready for pick up so come early. Also check your calendars (or bring them with you) as there will be sign-up sheets for all the stations of the show (admissions, boutique, raffle table, etc.).

Although we are never short of colour in the hall I haven’t been taking photos of all of the lovely projects. There will be some surprises at the Quilt Show even for the Guild members.

Welcome Carolina

feb-21-6feb-21-7We were pleased to have one of our newest members join us for sewing today – welcome to Carolina. We hope you will become a regular at our Tuesday bees.

We were celebrating February birthdays today, specifically Karen and Cathie F. Due to dietary restrictions Karen was not able to enjoy the lovely chocolate cake, but the rest of us had no problem finishing it off. Cathie was unable to attend today but we wish her a happy birthday as well.

There were a few new projects around the room today, and some folks finishing up quilt show entries. Janet and Gwen’s mother is moving and Gwen brought along a lovely bag of goodies for the Community Quilt cupboard. Penny was also passing around bags of scrap fabrics – one man’s scraps are Carola’s dream!

Happy Valentine’s Day

feb-14-1There were lovely decorated cookies (Rene), a box of chocolates, and some cinnamon hearts to celebrate the day. There were lots of hand stitchers around the table – and not just because of the treats! We were all amazed that as Kathleen put together the rows for her Film at Five she was simply reaching into her bin and pulling out a block – no matching whatsoever! And I think she was even having fun doing it that way.

Here are just some of the things I heard during the day:

  • My fob is wrapped around my doo-dad (Kathleen)
  • How many quilters does it take to untie a knot (Marlene)
  • If anybody needs them I have the things – you know (Rene)
  • Don’t wear a onesie to a car show (Sandra J)

The Mini Meez held their monthly meeting today. Click here to see what they’ve been up to.

Looking forward to seeing everyone (all dolled up) at the 30th Anniversary dinner on Thursday. Doors at 5:30; dinner at 6:00. Remember to bring one of your oldest quilts for our Trunk Show.

Happy Birthday

We were celebrating January birthdays today with a cake that Penny made for us. Margaret celebrated a birthday early in the month and today was Barb M’s big day. Marianna wondered if Barb was as old as her hair but younger than her teeth, and someone else wanted to know if she was 39 – AGAIN! If you celebrate a birthday in February you’ll want to join us on the 21st!

There was lots of talk around the table regarding the Trump-bashing that seems to be everywhere; I think we agreed we were all a little tired of it. Marianna complained about the cost of a gardenia that she purchased over the weekend ($29.95). Sandra J responded by saying she got an African violet on sale for $1.99. There was a suggestion that she could have gone to the shop, pinched a leaf and started her own plant but Sandra insists she’s “not that cheap”.

There were still a few Stack and Whack’s underway today and lots of folks finishing up and photographing quilt show entries. Remember that the entry forms, with a photograph, are due on Thursday. Also, remember to sign up for our Anniversary Gala dinner; payment is due on Thursday.

Crazy Quilt Cottage has a sale on at the moment – stop in this week to check out the bargains.

Who let the dogs out?

There wasn’t any stacking or whacking going on today but, after the weekend class, there were lots of stack and whack quilts on display. Barb M (of course) finished hers at the Sunday class. Progress was being made on several quilt show projects and we had several seasonal projects underway.

Don’t forget that you must sign up and pay for the Gala Anniversary dinner at the next business meeting.
