OCTOBER GUILD MEETING

Date: Wednesday 6 October 2021

Location : via Zoom

Time: 6:45 for 7 pm

Watch for your Zoom invitation!

COMMUNITY QUILTS

Starting in October, Community Quilts will meet in person at Stitch by Stitch. Meetings will be the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month.

Dates for October are 5th and 19th. Only 10 participants are allowed each session, and you must register with Stitch by Stitch, either by phone or online. Full Covid protocals will be in place. Please wear a mask, sign in upon arrival, and bring your own sewing supplies, machine, tools, etc. Bring a lunch for yourself and a mug. Sorry – no sharing at this time!

Don’t forget to make some placemats for recipients of Meals on Wheels! They are due early November. Please make them from 12″ x 14″, to 16″ x 19″, (large enough for a dinner plate). This is a good project to use up some “orphan blocks”! Please contact Anne if you want to help machine quilt a small quilt, stitch on bindings, or add a label to the quilts.

GUILD LIBRARY

There are still a few books that haven’t been returned to our library. Please do a search for any that have become misplaced, and return them to Stitch by Stitch. If you have any books, patterns, or magazines that you would like to donate for our next quilt show in 2023, please put them in a box or bag.

You will be notified, when the librarians are ready to collect them!

SEPTEMBER GUILD MEETING

Date: Wednesday 1 September 2021

Location : via Zoom

Time: 6:45 for 7pm meeting

Watch for your Zoom invitation!

Our guests this month are the members of the Elgin Piecemakers from St Thomas Ontario.

They will be sharing their virtual trunk show, filmed at many locations around St. Thomas and Elgin County.

Community Quilts

Our group completed 100 quilts during the past year, to be donated to members of our community.

There are still quilt kits out with our members. Please check to see if you have one that needs to be completed, as we always need more quilts!

A Return to In-Person Community Quilt Workshops
Heather Dawson from Stitch by Stitch has offered
a generous space for us to hold the workshops. Due to
Covid-19 the number of participants will be limited. Participants will have to pre-register and Covid-19 protocols need to be followed. Details will be ironed out closer to our “grand restart”. Perhaps
this will happen in October. Tentatively we will meet
the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month. Lunch will be brown bagged.

V.O.N Meals on Wheels Placemats
Once again, we will be making and donating placemats to the V.O.N
for Meals on Wheels. Due date will be Wednesday, November 3rd.
Delivery to V.O.N will be the

first week of December. Since we will not
be meeting in person, placemats can be dropped off at Phyllis Langridge (613-547-4062) or Holly Moyes (613-546-3034). Please call
either one ahead before dropping them off.
Do you have orphan blocks? Turn them into placemats. It “gets rid” of
them and at the same time results in very nice and unique placemats.

QUILTS KINGSTON 2023

Covid 19 Challenge Quilt


Theme: Surviving Covid-19

There’s still time to join the challenge! QuiltsKingston Show is coming up fast. It will be here before we know it. We may think of it being almost
two years away, but those two years will go by so quickly.
Several months ago, the Covid-19 Challenge was announced. You were requested to complete a project that was 96 inches in perimeter using certain colours.

As a Limestone member you use blue as your main colour with orange, green and two or three additional colours. In addition, white and black
could also be used as they are not colours.
As a Kingston Heirloom member, you use yellow as your main colour with orange, green and two or three additional colours. In addition, white and black could also be used as they are not colours. We hope you enjoyed the challenge and have been working on your piece.


Submitting your piece:
It is now time to think about submitting your piece on September 15th. We will be using Unit 6 at the Peachtree Plaza for you to bring your piece for
submission. The Thriftlodge Hotel (1187 Princess Street) has donated the space to us. We need to know if you are participating in order that we may
give each person an appointment time to bring their piece in. We have to follow COVID guidelines – limited number of people, masks to be worn, social distancing etc. Due to the mentioned limitations we decided to put together a slide show that will be sent to all members. We will be asking the members to vote on the pieces. We have prizes.
Join in! Please let Simone Lynch, Lillian McQuaide or Kathy Breau know if you plan on participating.
Thank You
