Covid-19 protocols will be followed: masks at all times except when eating or drinking, sign in at the front door, use the hand sanitizer provided. We will be able to keep “socially distanced” in the classroom.
At the present time commercial businesses are trying to figure out what type of activity requires “proof of vaccination”. To be on the “safe side” we would suggest that guild members participating at the workshops have “proof of vaccination”.
You MUST pre-register through Stitch by Stitch. This can be done by internet (Info@stitchbystitchkingston.ca) or by phone (613-389-2223). Maximum workshop number is 10.
It is requested that those attending the workshop park on the side of the parking lot towards Potter’s Nurseries which will leave the spaces closer to the store front available for customers.
Lunch will be “BROWN BAGGED”. This is also the opportunity to dig out your Lug-a-Mug that hasn’t seen a quilting venue in ages as you will need to bring your own mug. Wear your name tag.
You will need to bring any sewing supplies and tools such as your own rotary cutters, scissors, etc that you think you might need and your sewing machine if possible. It will take a little time to determine what we actually “need”. There will be some tasks that do not require your sewing machine for those unable to bring your sewing machine.
On behalf of the Limestone Quilters’ Guild, Thank you Heather Dawson for generously providing the classroom room space at Stitch by Stitch twice a month as well as the use of ironing boards and storage space.
