Thanks to Kathy O for the excellent packet of information about the Quadra Island hosted event on Oct 2nd, 2010.

Shawn will be posting all the info on our sidebar soon, but we just want to remind you that you may signup on June 3rd at our next business meeting. The cost is $15.00 for the luncheon and will be collected by Kathy O and sent to the organizing committee by June 15th.

For our new members, Hands Across The Water is a day of fun that includes a lunch, guest speaker, shopping at vendor’s booths,door prizes,draws, a challenge competition( viewer’s choice) and lots of visiting with new and old friends from our neighbouring guilds.

The Quadra Island quilters also plan 2 days of workshops that are open to all invited guild members – but space is limited so you must sign up soon. A separate registration form can be filled out and mailed by each student.

    Hi there,

    Just wondering if you could send me some information on your up and coming retreat in October. I live in Tahsis and was wondering if there any openings left.

      Kim, do you know any of the quilters in Port Hardy or Campbell River? You might be able to get onto their waiting list . Deadline was June 15th for registration for the Sat, which is the luncheon, speaker and fun activities. But the Quadra quilters were advertising that there was still spaces in the classes on the Fri or Sun. I will try to find an email for you and send it separately.
