October 21st Meetings

Afternoon meeting:

A Quilter’s Quandary: Online Resources

The ladies of Sew Charming Crafts will show us how to find instructions or patterns for crafting projects.  As well as telling us about printed patterns for purchase in the store, they will share some tips on how to find good online resources, and identify some pitfalls that you may want to avoid.

They will bring some of the store’s beautiful fabrics that have inspired them to search out different patterns and projects to showcase their versatility.

It’s also election day – don’t forget to vote!

Coffee and tea will be ready so bring  your mug for Happy Hour from 12:30 to 1:30.

Evening Meeting:

We thought we’d relax a bit at this last meeting before the Quilt Show and play some games.  We’ll play some Strip Poker, so please bring three (3) quilting cotton fabric strips, each measuring 2.5″ wide by the WOF (width of fabric), in a Hallowe’en or Fall/Autumn theme.  We will also play a couple of other games.  There will be prizes!

We love to see what you’re making so bring something for Show and Tell at the end of the meeting.

As at every meeting, you’re welcome to come and gather from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. before the meeting starts, and visit with other Guild members.  Guests are welcome to come and check us out prior to joining our Guild.  You can attend two meetings as a guest before we ask you to join as a member.   See the ‘About SQG ‘tab on this site.
