This is not all that is available but it some of it.  Feel free to call or come by and look for something that suits you.  We would like to remind you that you need to fill out the volunteer sheet for the museums records and take a photo of it to send to Carolyne so we can keep track of the volunteer hours.

7) Canada Day:   As some of you know The Canadian Quilters Association is Collecting 12 and a half inch slab blocks and slab block quilt tops in preparation for the Canada's Big Quilt Bee this June.  Their goal is to make 1000 quilts to donate to Ronald McDonald house for Canada Day.  They ask that blocks contain at least one piece of the
Canada's 150th fabric from Northcott.  Carolyne has the instructions and info to hand out to anyone interested

8)  We know with the holiday season approaching stress can occasionally get the better of us so just a friendly reminder to be respectful of others.  There's no reason to bring negativity and drama with you, when we are all there for the same reason.  To sew with great people.  Each and every member bring more value and experience to the group and there is room for everyone.
