Members making comfort quilts, pillowcase dresses

Rivers’ Edge Quilt Guild

The monthly meeting of the Rivers’ Edge Quilt Guild was well attended Nov. 6. We are fortunate we have a large craft room and we were able to have six feet between each chair and faithfully follow all COVID-19 rules. We are conscious to disinfect any area we have touched. Our tables and chairs are spotless.

We had a make-a-bag-from-your-scraps day. We have a plan to make comfort quilts for Interval House, Battlefords Mental Health, the Empty Stocky Fund and KidsFirst. For those who are more comfortable working from home, there were blocks of material provided.

Our retreat and a Christmas party have been cancelled due to the pandemic, but we are still making pillowcase dresses for Guatemala on regular sewing days. At present, we are not able to ship them, but we will be ready when we are able to do so.

As we have limited storage space, we are reluctant to accept donated materials.

Dec. 10 we will have a make-a-gnome day.
