We had a wonderful turnout for the first meeting of the season!
It was enjoyable seeing many familiar faces, and meeting some new members as well.
Our guest was Sheree Bonaparte
from Creative Sewing Centre, Akwesasne, Ontario
She shared some of her quilt creations, and told us many details of being an active member of the Mohawk nation. Many of her quilts use symbols to honour the Mohawk traditions. Our library was open for members to return books and borrow new ones, and Community Quilts had some quilt kits to send home with members for completion. There were many quilts donated to Community Quilt this month as well. Of course, some business was shared with the members, including an upcoming spring trip to Paducah Kentucky, for the AQS Show, and a day trip to Ottawa, for the CQA annual show.
Refreshments were provided by the guild executive this month.The postcard group has been busy creating new cards to send.
We ended our meeting with Show and Tell, with members sharing their latest creations.
