Watch monthly for Quilt Patch, a report from the Rivers' Edge Quilt Guild and enjoy the photos of their projects from their Show and Tell.
Somebody once said, “I’ve spent most of my life making quilts, the rest I’ve just wasted.”
The 27 members of the Rivers’ Edge Quilt Guild have decided to waste no more time as they met for the first business meeting of the year in the craft room at the Don Ross Centre. They are embracing the challenge of a new season of quilting as an exciting program for the year was presented by the program committee.
The September lineup includes two instructional sessions: a crazy quilt and a structured bag pattern will be presented by two in-house talented teachers. As part of the mandate of the guild, plans are also underway for the making of Comfort Quilts for distribution into the community where there is a need. In addition, an appeal was made to guild members to assist the students of John Paul II Collegiate with the cutting of fabric for their quilts, the making of which forms a part of their program at school.
The meeting concluded with Show and Tell, a testament to the fact that our members have been busy during the summer months. Note that the efforts are varied in nature since quilting can be incorporated in many projects.
The guild was pleased to have in attendance three guests, one from Newfoundland. If you are interested to find out more, please attend the next business meeting as a guest on Friday, Oct. 4 at 1 p.m. or call Leslie at 306-937-7471 or Bonnie at 306-386-3116 for further information. Beginner, intermediate and experienced quilters are welcome.
