It’s been quite some time since we’ve had a post to this site about out guild happenings. And a lot has been happening! Most of our communication has been via the group email. However, there are still some things that we want o shout from the rooftop. So we’ll be going back to posting here as well.
This has been a great year of virtual meetings using Zoom. Who knew you could learn so much and connect so well through your computer screen? This format has provided the opportunity to bring in some excellent speakers and workshops. Some local and some from far way. We’ve even kept our Guild day afternoon sewing time via Zoom.
Speed Date with Improv – April 17 10 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Krista Hennebury will take us through speed dating with improvisational piecing techniques. These include curves and free-cutting. Several techniques are introduced and demonstrated one after the other with little time to second guess. Explore line shape and happenstance in abstract design using solid color fabrics in black, white and one pop of color.
If you’re interested, get in touch with Janet M.
Patricia Belyea of Okan Arts will be chatting with creative Kaffe Fassett on Monday, April 19 at 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. Hawaii Time (12 p.m. to 1 p.m. Calgary Time)

May 8, 2021 – the Art of Applique with Kathy Wylie
Our challenges this year, instead of being competitions, have been the Mystery Quilt and the WHY NOT blocks that will end up in a charity quilt. Thanks Kelly B. for keeping that organized and going. If you can finish your quilt by the June meeting be sure to send the photo in to Barb for the virtual Show and Tell. For those who need a bit more time, you have until September, where we’ll feature the mystery quilt show as well.
