PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE Darla Youldon
Hello fellow quilters!
Well, I’m sure hoping we’ve seen the last of snow until the Christmas Season at the end of the year. There is a reason we know not to plant our veggies until the 24th of May weekend!
We lost a dear member recently, Christina Coutts. After joining the guild in 2019, she soon volunteered to become a member of the HQG Executive. Christina was a lovely person and we will miss her. Her daughter is honouring her mother's wishes and is making a donation of fabric to our Comfort Quilts programme.
I received a beautiful letter from a friend of mine. Her father, who passed away recently, had received a Comfort Quilt while in Joseph Brant Hospital. They were unable to visit him in the hospital and the quilt was sent to them along with his belongings. They were very, very grateful to have received it and have made a donation in his memory to the Guild.
On a happier note, I hope you are all creating lots of beautiful quilts and that you will be sharing your photos with us at our Zoom meetings.
Positive thoughts and hoping to see you all soon, Darla
