Well, it seems like March has come in like a lamb, it could go out like a lion…or not. Although we all know that what happens in between the 1 st and the 31 st can be a mixture of all things imaginable. In years past, this has been the month of some of our most record snowfalls and snowstorms and for many people, (not usually people who live in the mountains!) March heralds, the approach of spring. For quilters, it brings us to the month that is recognized as a tribute to quilting and International Quilt day.This year Saturday, March 20th is the day to celebrate our craft.
Providing the weather is relatively clear and without rain or snow or high winds, this is the day that we join the world in showing our quilts outdoors to our family and friends and neighbours passing by. Whether you have quilts that you have finished or quilts that you have received as gifts, showing them on our balconies and decks or in our front windows can be great fun. Invite anyone you know who owns a quilt to participate and make this a most colourful day in the Bow Valley.
As a guild, we have several wonderful opportunities to look forward to this month, two Quilt ‘til you wilt days, a general meeting with the celebrated quilter/designer/teacher Peter Byrne and a workshop as well as the Pick- Four bee group and the Handi-bees. Thank you to our Education Committee and our VP’s for bringing these events to us.
Stay well everyone and I look forward to seeing you at one of our next ZOOM get-togethers,
