Hands Across The Water 2008 – Update

What’s this all about?

This event is being hosted by the Sunshine Coast Quilter’s Guild on Sat Oct 25, 2008.

Location is the Holy Family Parish Hall 5700 Nickerson Road in West Sechelt.That’s right it’s BEFORE you get to the main town of Sechelt and there will be signs on the road. This is the same hall where the quilt show was last year.

This is a social day hosted by a different guild every year. Quilters from Campbell River, Quadra Island, Comox Valley , Texada Island and Powell River all gather to enjoy lunch, a guest speaker, shopping, fun and chatter.

This event is very popular and unfortunately , if you don’t already have your name on the list , there might not be enough space to accomodate everyone. The deadline was June 30th.

Here’s a list of reminders for those attending. Remember the Theme is Harvest and Fall – plan accordingly:)

1.pick up your block instructions, and note that the light fabric must be ecru,beige or light tan.

2.Hat contest- decorate and wear a fall harvest hat- there’s secret judges and PRIZES!

3.Challenge – in a fall theme. Project must have been made in the last year, any harvest theme,harvest colours, and viewer’s choice will perhaps win you a prize.

4.Fat Quarter exchange – again in Fall colors or prints.

5.$$$ for the merchant mall. There will be a number of quilt shops with goodies for purchase. Cash and Cheques work well.

Lunch is provide and our featured speaker is Judy Farrow from Parksville,Vancouver Island.

Show and Tell is encouraged – so plan to bring along a project and story to share.

PLEASE sign up for the CARPOOL -see the list on the program table at the meeting on Thurs.

HAW starts at 10AM and ends at 3:30pm

That means that we MUST catch the 7:25am ferry at Saltery Bay and catch the 4:25pm ferry at Earl’s Cove to get home. Plan accordingly to catch your ride. Have your BC ferries card for a discount fee.


Now that I have figured out how to upload other things besides photos, I am including the HAW 2008 Information package. In case you have misplaced your copy of the Block pattern, or for more information not included in this blog entry.  The “t-shirt” order form is also included in the document, but I think the deadline may have come and gone for ordering.  If in doubt contact Kathy O. -Alice
