He showed us the wonderful Janome machine and accessories that he has donated to the Limestone Quilters’ Guild to celebrate their 25th Anniversary.
We thanked Eric for his continuing support of our guild.
There will be a draw for the prize, valued at $2800, at Quilts Kingston 2015 on June 14th.
A ticket will be included with each paid admission to the show!

Once dinner was over, and a few business items were taken care of, our guest speaker took over the stage!
Michelle-Renee Charbonneau is one of the founding members of the
Modern Quilt Guild of Ottawa ON.
She presented a wonderful slide show, with lively commentary, followed by a trunk show.
She made her first quilt while at university, without knowing much about quilting.
