We’re having a Bag Blitz!
From our January through April Guild meetings we will be sewing with a frenzy in support of our community YWCA and Bow Valley Palliative Care programs Let’s see how many bags we can make!
Here are the pattern links for the YWCA and Precious Belongings Palliative Care tote bag: Simple Tote Bag 2020 and Precious Belongings
Your contacts for the YWCA Totes are Siobhan or Deb and for the Precious Belongings Totes, Albertina or Dale.
The link below is to a video that we planned to show at our November meeting to honour Roseanne and the Founders of our Guild. As we recently learned, Roseanne is moving to Leduc to be closer to family. She will, however, remain a member of our Guild and through the magic of technology, be able to join us on Zoom. We’re all sad to see her leave the Bow Valley! Her sunny attitude and willingness to volunteer for anything that needs to be done will be missed by so many local organizations. Thanks so much to Wally and her son-in-law for converting it to a private YouTube video so we can all watch.
SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL EVENT
Workshop Postponed Due to Instructor illness
We know that the past many months have been challenging for everyone. So we wanted to do something special for our members. We will be offering a free one day zoom workshop on January 22, 2022 for all of our members. The workshop we will be offering is with award winning quilter, teacher and designer Lori Dickman (quiltingwithlori.com) Zooming in from Illinois. For the workshop description, supply list and the workshop sign up please go to the members only section of the website. If you have any questions please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Several of our guild members helped add paint to the mural at the Canmore Recreation Centre this weekend. Participants were from groups who utilize the recreation centre.
Raffle Quilt Draw
On Sunday afternoon, Dean Murphy from the Sugar Pine in Canmore drew the winning ticket for our stunning raffle quilt, Colourful Canmore. The winner is (insert drum roll here!) Sue Herlett. The winning ticket was sold by Pat G. We hope Sue, the winner of Colourful Canmore will be delighted with her prize.
The raffle quilt is a major source of funding for the Guild. Many thanks to the Raffle Quilt committee and all those who sold tickets and manned the booths at the market and outside the Sugar Pine during these difficult months!
It was lovely to see so many members out to watch the draw on this lovely fall afternoon, and to Dean for taking the time from his busy life to draw the winning ticket.
