Happy New Year Bee Night!!

Hello All,

A brand new year of possibilities, sharing time with others, creations being brought forth, new skills being learned and older skills being refined.  This is also a reminder email as the newsletter does not come out until after these two events.  Sure hope you had a wonderful holiday season and that you are excited to having much more time to create.

For those who signed up for Bee Night "Making mittens from Sweaters" this is a reminder that tonight is the night to learn that new skill.  Downstairs at the church.  Also, hand quilters, there will be some tables set up for you to enjoy sharing your skills each other and kibitzing.  Come add to the joy. 

Also, for those who signed up for the workshop January 19th "Embellishing your Quilt" a reminder to mark the event in your new agenda/calendar.  Pretty sure this will be great fun and lots of new skills to help add some unique Pizzazz to your quilts.  This is held at the Loblaws superstore on Liverpool.

Looking forward to seeing you at these two events.  Have a wonderful week and please remember to shop local whenever you can.  Thank  you

Side note: Deb A will not be there due to health reasons but you can still come and chat as you work on our hand work, she sends her regards!

Looking back

Hello Members,

Our last newsletter from Joanne is up give her thanks on a job well done I cannot imagine not having a newsletter it is the core of our information this one includes the year at a glance and what the executive has done to keep our guild exciting, the guild could not run without our wonderful volunteers thank you all for stepping in and making our spectacular!

We  look forward to 2018-19 and Welcome Deb K as our newsletter editor and the rest of the new executive for the coming year I can't wait to see what they have in store for us!

There are some great quilt shows coming this summer the Picton one, Quilts by the Creek and if I find more I will post on the side click on the links there and it will lead you to the page. There is also a sew-a-long by Border Creek Station it is free and you can make 2 blocks a week for 20 weeks just in time for Christmas finish. I would love to see what people make with it what fabrics you will use? how you would make it your own?

Summer slows the quilting world down some but not all the way it still keeps us imagining as we work on our gardens, go to bbq's travel to visit families in other provinces. I hope to hear about your summer adventures on our first meeting of Sept 25 it really isn't that far away

Happy Summer!
Deb
