Special Bulletin -
Members of your guild are invited to join us to view the
Canadian Nine Patch Exhibit
that will hang at the Houston Quilt Festival November 2017.
This free one day event is sponsored by "Love My Hood" and the City of Burlington.
Tuesday December 5th from 2:30 - 4:00 p.m.
Brant Hills Community Centre
2255 Brant St,
Burlington, ON ( just south of #5 hwy)
Members of this exhibit will be hosting this one day presentation to share our quilts and their stories within our community.
Some of our Canadian Nine Patch Members are part of your guild.
This will be the only time the entire collection will be together for viewing.
We are hoping you will mark your calendars and plan to attend this special event celebrating Canada's 150.
Fall really is in the air now! The heat wave is over, the turkey has been cooked and the trick or treaters have come and gone. I hope that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and enjoyed the little princesses and super heroes who were out and about on Halloween. The little ones always brighten my day and make me smile!
This month we are looking forward to the 40th ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION evening on November 23rd! The Anniversary Committee has lots planned and it should be a fun event! So if you haven’t already done so, plan to buy your Anniversary Celebration tickets at the November meeting and remember to bring the Anniversary Challenge block(s) that you have made.
With the cooler temperatures here to stay and the Christmas season fast approaching, it’s a wonderful time to turn our attention to our projects and UFOs. Have you grabbed an Outreach kit or started the President’s Challenge? Have you got a head start on your gift-giving projects? Remember to give some thought to items to make or put aside for December’s Penny Sale, as well as to bring for the Compassion Society. December will be here before we know it!
Remember, take part in one, some or all the activities being offered – but do what you enjoy so you enjoy what you’re doing!
