April 22 Meeting Reminder

Our speaker this Monday will be Garnet Smalley, from the London International Quilt Festival. Garnet will be presenting the trunk show "Out of Africa," which features many of the quilts from Africa that will be displayed at the London International Quilt Festival June 12-15, 2013.

At the break, Garnet will be selling a selection of fat quarters and jelly rolls, as well as batiks on the bolt for $10 per metre. Payments by cash, cheque or credit card will be accepted.

While you are at the meeting, why not take a few minutes to learn more about one of the open positions that we have on the Executive for next year? Whether you are a long time member or new to the guild, we will appreciate your help! The following positions are open:
  • Vice President
  • Secretary
  • Facilities
  • Newsletter
  • Social
  • Display (Show & Tell)
  • Library
  • Block of the Month (yes, it's open again)
Also, for Bee Night we have one volunteer, Elaine, who would like a partner to share the position. Plus, the Quilt Show Planning Committee still has a few open spots, so you may speak to Lisette about those. There's plenty of opportunity to be involved!

And as always, don't forget to
  • Bring in your completed Block of the Month,
  • Sign up for the last Bee Night of the year,
  • Bring in your completed Quilts from the Heart project,
  • Sign up for one (or both!) of our upcoming workshops,
  • Return your library books, and borrow up to 3 more for the next month,
  • Bring in your recently completed project for Show & Tell. Remember, only projects brought downstairs before the meeting can be photographed.
  • And, bring your own mug for coffee or tea downstairs at the break.
See you there!
