Quilt Show 2015 Raffle Quilt

Well the quilt has been mounted on a frame at Anne McKinnon's house and is being quilted by a group of very dedicated Guild members.  I spent an afternoon there a few weeks ago and found it most enjoyable.

The quilt is beautiful but it needs lots of quilting.  So if you are interested in being part of this project please contact Lorraine Roddy.

Happy New Year

News from Sue McConville Program co-ordinator 

January 13, 2014: Trunk Show
What better way to start the New Year than with a little inspiration?  Sharon Galna from Ajax will share her love of quilting and design in a presentation called “ Inspiration and Design”. Sharon was taught to sew at the age of 11 by her mother. She started out by making simple garments and continued with her love of sewing throughout public and high school by making her own clothes.  She took that love of sewing to the next level by studying fashion design at college. It was while in college in 1983 that she made her first quilt to celebrate her grandparents’ 50th wedding anniversary and was immediately hooked.

She has had pieces juried into the Grand National Quilt Exhibition (2006, 2007, 2010).  Her work has also been shown at the Joseph Schneider Haus, the Oshawa Fibre Arts Show, the Visual Arts Centre of Clarington and the Mclean Community Centre, Ajax.

Sounds like this will be a great meeting.  Hope to see you all there.
