4.    General Meeting Monthly Programs & Speakers


We are very pleased that despite current public health guidelines and limitations, our program of monthly speakers has continued virtually through Zoom. Programs & Speakers

The February 22 general meeting was attended by 62  (out of 90) members on ZOOM. We had a wonderful presentation  by Elaine Theriault (of Mississauga) showcasing her scrappy quilts. I liked her tips about using value to provide contrast in a scrappy quilt. String quilting was also shown, using a foundation to sew strips if fabric on, and then piecing these blocks.

On March 22 Celeste Compion will be our guest speaker. She is originally from South Africa and is now living in Elora. She imports and distributes Shweshwe (pronounced shwayshway) to North America. Shweshwe, often called the tartan of South Africa, is a heritage fabric with a fascinating story. Her presentation is called, “The Bolt and the Beautiful: The Shweshwe Saga”.
