Our first Guild business meeting is just a couple of days away on Thursday, September 6th. I trust everyone enjoyed the summer and is ready for another exciting year of creativity. There will be lots going on throughout the year, but we won’t see the full program for a couple more weeks. Mark your calendar for September 20th – there’s a Pot Luck dinner planned with a presentation by the Program Committee to follow. Membership fees for the Guild are due ($35) and if you want to take the Fabric Dying class on Saturday, September 15th your class fees must be paid Thursday night as well.
Are you putting those last stitches into your summer projects? Don’t forget to bring the completed pieces to Show and Tell on Thursday and have the inches counted as we try to make our way across Canada (or at least across to the Island)!
Next week is the monthly Soup and Sandwich meeting at the Senior Center so there will be no sewing bee. But please join us again on September 18th.

Door Hangers for Olive Devaud
The hangings can be any size, as long as they fit on a standard door. Adding a sleeve to the back will help with their placement. Don’t forget a label on the back so your work is identified.
