Kanata Quilt Guild

In-Town Retreat: Feb 28 – March 1 2018

There will be another 2 day in-town retreat, similar to last year at the Kanata Legion (70 Hines Road). It will start at 9 AM on 28 Feb and continue until 5 PM on 1 Mar.  We will be able to leave our sewing machines set up overnight. Since, this retreat is local, everyone will be able to sleep at their own homes.

Cost is $50.00 per person which will include 2 mid morning snacks, 2 lunches, and 1 supper, 28 Feb.  There will be a group block draw, an evening game the first night, prizes and a silent auction.  This retreat will be limited to the first 40 registrants. Registration accompanied by your payment will begin at the November guild meeting.

Kanata Quilt Show

The Kanata Quilt Guild is very excited to host our very first ever quilt show.  Unlike, the two other Guilds in the Ottawa area who alternate yearly to produce a Quilt Show, ours is going to be a smaller Community event, held in the Glen Carin United Church on September 16 2017.  But we are no less excited to show off the lovely creations that our Guild members produce.  We are busy working on a “Members Boutique” creating fun items to sell and have decided to also have a “Tea Room” with sandwiches and sweets for sale.  
Please help us make our 1st quilt show one to remember!  Spread the word!
It is only a one day show….so mark your calendars and come enjoy the day with our Guild members.

June Meeting and Potluck

The last meeting of the 2016-2017 membership year is this Thursday, June 8, at 9:30 a.m. at Glen Cairn United Church. Activities will include a members’ garage sale, voting on the panel quilts submitted in the President’s Challenge, and a potluck social. Because of the meal, we will be meeting in the church hall this month, not the sanctuary.

There will, of course, be Show and Tell, raffles, sign-up opportunities for retreats and information on the fall Quilt Show. 

The meeting reminder email is sent to (nearly) all current members and contains the password required to access the newsletter, which is a membership benefit. If you are having any difficulty accessing the newsletter, please don’t hesitate to contact the webmaster, Liz 

Quilt Show Submission Form

Help us celebrate the quilts and community we create in our guild!  Plans for our Quilt Show Celebration are well underway. Please have your quilts ready to bring to our September Guild meeting along with the submission form for each quilt. You can enter as many quilts as you would like but it would be awesome if every member could submit a couple of quilts.

Submission forms will be available at the June meeting and are also available here so you can complete the forms before the September meeting. We will have plenty of registration forms available at the September meeting!

If you have any questions, visit the Quilt Show table at the June Meeting!
