From our amazing program convener Sue McConville:

Are you ready for a challenge and some FUN.  We all know that February is heart month and Valentine's Day and Red is the colour of choice.  This is your chance to display your talents with a member's challenge: 

All Things Red

The Rules:
  • Items must be 50% reed (excluding the backing)
  • Items must contain fabric although other media can be incorporated
  • Some quilting required - either machine or hand
  • All items must be presented for judging by 12:30 pm at the February 10th meeting
  • Members will vote on their favourite pieces.
  • Items can be taken home at the end of the meeting
  • Prizes will be awarded to the winners at the March meeting.

We will need volunteers to accept the items as they are brought in and others to set up the displays.  Please contact Sue to volunteer:
