We are living in interesting times as we work to find a safe pathway through the COVID-19 virus. So far, it appears the social distancing / self-monitoring / event cancellation / travel advisory measures put in place by our various governments appear to be serving us well here in Saskatchewan. For your information, the direct link to all updates from our provincial government can be found here: : https://www.saskatchewan.ca/coronavirus#utm_campaign=q2_2015&utm_medium=short&utm_source=%2Fcoronavirus
The SQG needs to find ways to model adherence to government health and safety measures for a variety of reasons that include, but are not limited to:
1. Our membership, for the most part, is part of the vulnerable population for this virus.
2. Many in our membership have a habit of travelling (and enjoying themselves!).
3. Our community leaders are asking all of us to pay attention to social distancing, personal hygiene, self-monitoring, and virus containment.
4. In the last few days, advice from various government departments has become more restrictive for group settings, not less restrictive.
Your executive has decided that at this time, we are discontinuing all SQG meetings, sewing days and guild activities until further notice.
- Retreat April 3 – 5 is cancelled. Participants will receive a full refund. If you booked a room, please remember to cancel it.

Stay well, stay home and sew to your heart’s content everyone, and thank you.
“In the end it will be impossible to know if we overreacted and did too much, but it will be QUITE apparent if we under reacted and did too little.” Dr. Daniel Hile
The meeting starts at 1:30 p.m. but you’re welcome to come for the hour before that to chat with other quilters. At this meeting Diane Cochrane will be telling us how she used the Guild scholarship for self-improvement. You won’t want to miss it!
Temperature Quilts with Berna Ostapovitch What’s it all about? Chilled, Cold, Warm, Hot or flashes of heat? Winter to spring, summer to fall, temperatures fluctuate sometimes daily. Assigning a colour to a range or degree of temperature can present a unique colour palette. Come and see how it all comes together at this heartwarming presentation on Monday evening. See you there!
