Sept Speakers

Mary and Trisha from Harebrained Happenings  put on a wonderful trunk show of their whimsical and humourous quilted creations.  This was a great opening act for our new Guild year!!   The ladies also had many of their quilt patterns for sale.  I am looking forward to seeing these patterns made up and presented at a Show and Share.

Welcome Donna

Donna MacDonald, our new president, opened our season by announcing her charity for the year,  her Secret Sister program, and  The President's Challenge.

Donna has selected as her charity Community Care City of Kawartha Lakes - Transportation Services.  This service offers seniors and anyone with a disability or other special needs with transportation options.  This can include transportation to medical appointments, grocery shopping, errands and social events.  This helps the users of this service to maintain their independence. It also takes some of the burden off the city's ambulance services.

Secret Sister
Details  and sign up sheets for this  program were handed out at the meeting.  It sounds like fun.  Need info on this?  Contact Donna.  

President's Challenge
To make an item from leftover or newly made triangles. We all have tons of these!!

  • Traditional blocks using triangles or half square triangle
  • What were you thinking?  This can be anything - using triangles 
  • Mixed media.  This can involve using many different techniques with different embellishments to create your piece.
Donna has a detailed hand out on this project. 

Thank you Lorna
