Hello, dear Guild members,
Sadly we will have to cancel our guild meetings until further notice. Our church is suspended from meetings, as well. We are carrying on with online meetings for church on our church website, if anyone is interested, Millarville Community Church
We are very concerned for one another. Please let me know if this is anything you need help with. I’m sure you are not surprised at this announcement. This is temporary until our world gets back to normal. Until you hear from us, there are no guild meetings scheduled.
Take care and keep healthy until we see each other again face-to-face!
Love to all,
Greetings to you all! Each one of you are important and with this in mind we are cancelling the March Guild Meeting because of the recent Covid-19 pandemic situation.
Although we do fall within Alberta’s suggested guidelines for continuing (less than 250 in attendance – at least at last count), many in our guild are at risk because of age or immune-compromise issues. Plus, how do you hold a guild event without food or coffee!!??
We very much are hoping that you are all well and are safe in your situations, whatever that may be. If there is anyone in need, please let us know as perhaps we may be able to help.
We will keep you posted regarding the April meeting currently scheduled for April 4. Please be sure to check your blog post.
All the best to each of you as we weather this current storm together. Things are well in hand with all the appropriate responses being taken by our governments and so many organizations. We can be thankful for that.
And perhaps these days can be viewed as a gift to stay home and quilt.
This month is Charity/Comfort Sew Day
March 14 – Regular meeting followed by show and tell.
Join us as we put together the blocks we’ve been collecting. At the last meeting, members joined teams to put the blocks together. We need lots of people to arrange, sew, and iron. Bring your lunch and spend the afternoon. If you forgot to bring the blocks you’ve made please bring them Saturday to be included in these projects.Colour of the Year Block
Strip Poker has been moved to April meeting.

Heritage Quilt Festival
A friendly reminder to our members that we need volunteers for the quilt festival: to sit at our booth for a short shift, to help set up on Friday night, and take down on Sunday afternoon. All you need to do is talk to people who may have questions about our program and our guild. It’s a great time to meet people from other guilds and people interested in quilts and quilting in general.
Alberta Quilt Study Society
Have you ever volunteered at a documentation day? Volunteer opportunities are available and no experience is required!
Have you ever had one of your own quilts documented? We document all kinds of quilts – new or old. Quilts are needed for discovery!
The next AB QSS Quilt Documentation day will be on March 15th at St. Andrews Heights Community Hall, 2504 13th Ave. NW, Calgary.
At Quilt Discovery Days, AB QSS members and others volunteer to document quilts with an Alberta connection. Documentation includes registration, an oral history from the quilt owner or maker, an extensive physical examination of the quilt and a photograph. The information and photo are provided to the quilt owner and will be included in The Quilt Index (quiltindex.org).
Please reply to set up an appointment to register your quilt or volunteer.
Let us know if you require any further information.
