November Already

Hi Members!!!

Did you go to the York Heritage quilt show? did you get ideas for our show? did it give you incentive to work on your quilts and get some finishes done? How about the President challenge how are you doing on that? There is just so much incentive in the fall with our bright colors I hope you have some time to stitch.

We had a great time on Bee Night there were lots of members there and I had fun seeing all the Boxy bags being made Bee Night is almost like a mini retreat I hope you are able to come out for one of the nights.

I have the Newsletter and the BOM uploaded so get some tea or other beverage and enjoy.

The Countdown Is On!

Spring in the air, and "pedals are to the floor" as we move into high gear for RVQG's quilt show, “Quilts at the Rouge”.  Members have done a stellar job of preparation over the past few months, and there's a sense of anticipation as we get closer to sharing our passion for quilting arts with our community of visitors, friends & family.

As well, work continues on the “Circles Challenge”, quilt tops and/or placemats for Quilts From The Heart to bring comfort to others, quilts to show at upcoming guild meetings.

Whatever project(s) you are now binding and labelling, enjoy the process, discover a new level to your creative talents, and celebrate the completion of your masterpieces.

Remember, if you are not yet a member, you can visit the Membership page for details and join us as a guest or a new member.

Heating Up To RVQG's Quilting Year...

Just like the weather, members have been hot, hot, hot on the trail of many things "quilty" to keep cool over the summer hiatus:  participating in row-by-row, racking up kilometers on mini road trips & retreats with like-minded friends, completing long-overdue projects, and dare I say it, wading through fabric scrap piles to pull together pieces (and conjure up inspiration) for the next fantastic quilt project.  Whatever the quilty pleasure, undoubtedly you're enjoying your time so well spent!

On Sept. 26th, RVQG's first general meeting of the 2016-17 year will be held, and we know you'll be ready to "show & share" your big & small fabric art pieces while re-connecting with guild members.  Looking forward to seeing members, "seasoned" and new, for another year of quilting activity participation and fun.  Not yet a member?  Why not visit the membership page, then join us as a visitor or new member.

Talent and individual expressions are not qualities that just other people posses.  We all have it too!  All of us have a capacity for creativity as is shown in our own quilting.  We have to trust our own choice and end with the simple belief that what pleases us is beautiful.  “Our lives are like quilts, bits and pieces stitched together.”  All will agree, the creations for display in January were BEAUTIFUL!  Click here to see the displays.

Looking forward to February’s creations.
