Sweatshirt Workshop

On October 18th two members of the Guild, Jean Drozda and Sheila Gibson, taught a workshop at the Ferguson Forestry Centre for some of our members.   At the end of the day participants had almost completed their own jacket, with embellishment!  Personal fittings, expert advice and lots of fun made the day a great success.

Just part of another great meeting!

"Sew & Tell"  October

At every meeting we always have time for members to show us what they have been working on.  This feature is called  "Sew & Tell" .  It's a part of the meeting that is appreciated by everyone.   Here's a few of the quilts featured the October meeting.
Two friends, Betty and Beth, get together weekly to work on their quilts. Here's two quilts that they recently finished.  The pattern is called "Star Spin"

Here's a close up of Betty's Quilt. 

And here's Beths .

Bev and her mother Pat brought in matching lap quilts that will be going to the cottage soon.
These were the result of a Beginner Quilting Course at Kemptville Fabrics.

  Pat brought in her "Friendship Star" quiltmade from seven years of collected scraps.

Nellie made a lap quilt for Children's Services
 from the Block of the Month Pattern.

Sandy finished this huge "modern" quilt from fabric purchased years ago in Philadelphia.

Carmen finished her "Wonky Star" quilt for her son who is now in university. It's reversible!

Just one of the quilts made by Sheila over the summer.  This is another use for the Block of the Month pattern.

One of Sheila's favourite blocks used in a quilt and in a place mat. Very Versatile!

And a Texas Star, made by Sheila too. 

Erla believes that everyone needs a Stadium quilt,

This chenille baby quilt made by Jean will be very appreciated by a new mother!
