What a show!!!

Sometimes you are proud to be part of something and then sometimes you are over the moon about being part of something.   I am totally over the moon about being part of this quilt show.   Our Guild displayed their talent in quilt making, hosting a fantastic tea room, presenting a wonderful Members Boutique, attracting a tremendous sampling of vendors, and selling a record number of tickets for our raffle quilt. What a great two days and what a wonderful membership we have.  Kudos to you Faye and your team of tireless workers!!!

Below are some samples of the displays, boutiques, and vendors. 

The Boutique did its best business ever!!!

The "Tea Room" was great....Tea for Two was a hit!!

Quilt Show Set Up

Today Guild volunteers headed to the Lindsay Curling Club to set up for our Quilt Show taking place this weekend.  So much work is needed to ensure the show looks great and will be enjoyed by all our visitors and our members.  From what I can see so far there are lots of beautiful quilts to view, tons of items in our boutique to buy, a great menu at the Tea Room, and lots of Vendors selling material and quilting items.  It will be a great show...the doors open at 10:00am Saturday and Sunday.

Quilts are registered for display by Jane Paice and her group.

May is Quilting Month

To celebrate National Quilting Month we are displaying quilts throughout the town. You will find quilts in the windows of seven Kent Street stores and also at Southern Comfort on Highways 7 and 36.  The displays look great!!!  It is well worth the stroll down Kent Street to see each one.

Here are some of the wonderful items from  Show and Share......

May Meeting

During our May meeting Betty Lester from the Lindsay Fair Board explained how to enter our quilts or other crafts in the Lindsay Fair.  It would be great to see more of our members entering their creations at the Fair.  The gals from Silver Connections Inc. gave us an enlightening presentation on how their company can help any one looking for a reliable contractor or service provider.  Check them out at
