Yes we have started..... It seems like yesterday we just finished the Quilt for the 2011 show but Pam Campbell and Donna MacDonald have been holding workshops at Pam's studio and at Appleseed Quilt Shop for the quilt to be raffled in 2013. This quilt is going to be amazing!! We are all learning so many new techniques during the construction of this masterpiece. There is a lot of work to be done...so if you are interested in joining us at a workshop contact Donna MacDonald. She will be setting up more sessions in the new year. Here is a sneak preview of some of the squares..
Sue Carmichael the owner of the Quilters Cupboard quilt shop in Uxbridge was our guest speaker for November. Sue's quilt shop was featured in Quilt Sampler magazine in 2010 (an amazing accomplishment for a Canadian shop!!) plus Quilters Cupboard was voted Shop of the Year 2011 by Fab Shop.
During her inspirational talk Sue took us through the trials, tribulations, and joys of getting her shop to this level of excellence. Sue's motto of Fun, Friends Food and Fabric is a great slogan for all quilters. I can't wait for my next visit to the Quilters Cupboard.
There were also lots of goodies from the shop for sale.
Doris Bamlett's beautiful quilt raised $680 for the Ross Memorial Hospital's Imagining Department. A big thank you to all of you who purchased tickets. A special thanks to Mavella Smith from CQA who donated her "car mileage fee" to top the total raised to $730. Way to go Doris!!
