A Note From Our President

A very big thank you to Helene V and her husband who have offered to sell raffle tickets outside of the Sugar Pine for our beautiful quilt, ”Colourful Canmore” on Thursdays throughout the summer months as well as at the Marketplace in July. The raffle ticket proceeds are what enables the guild to provide education, speakers and meetings for all of us.  If you are able to assist Helene in any way, please let her know. And if you need more raffle tickets to sell, contact our amazing treasurer, Karen.

TOUCH QUILTS :  We now have ‘Touch Quilt Kits’!  

A complete fun and colourful package to make a lap sized touch quilt top.  Tops are made with nine squares, three rows of three squares that are cut at 6.5” each before assembly.  Touch quilts are made of colourful fabric with varying textures. Add-ons such as pockets, Velcro and ties provide dementia patients with tactile and visual stimulation. Quilts are backed with flannel to keep them from slipping. Our guild continues to make touch quilts for the Bow Valley, they provide both warmth and security to recipients.

These are a fun and easy project, completed in several hours. If you’d like to have a kit, please contact the current keeper of the closet Karen at treas@mountaincabinquilters.ca
