September 2019 - January 2020

Welcome everyone, fall is in the air, garden is put to bed and we can no longer feel guilty about spending our whole day quilting!

Our Sep 16 program opener with the "Singing Quilter", Cathy Miller and her husband John Bunge paved the way to another exciting year! We definitely need Cathy to return for a work shop and more songs.

October 28....reminder, our meeting is delayed one week due to the federal election. Danielle Weaver, a talented quilter and teacher from Campbell River will demonstrate "Appliqué the easy way with a Scan N Cut plus a kite demo block using a Bloc Loc Ruler. Island Sewing will also be our vendor. Tickets will be on sale at $10 for non Quilt members to enjoy our November meeting featuring Katie Pasquini Masopust.

November 18...We are thrilled to welcome Katie Pasquini Masopust who will take us through her quilting journey. November will be one afternoon meeting at 1:00 PM with doors opening at 12:30. Dragonfly Quilting will be our vendor and again tickets to see Katie for nonmembers will be sold at the door.

December 9...our Christmas meeting will feature Port Alberni's Patti Dance. Patti is a gifted Contemporary Art Quilter and member of our guild. Many of her quilts have been accepted into juried shows including CQA, where she has won awards. Carola's Thread Company will be this month's vendor. Don't forget our Christmas pot luck.

January 20...our Annual Epic Garage Sale heads the program list. What a way to start the new year! Our own Mickey Bliickert and Ionne McCauley will introduce to us a "challenge Quilt". Judging and voting will be held at our June meeting followed by prizes for the winners!
