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

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.
