The Original Fabric Flea Market

The Original Fabric Flea Market is an annual fundraiser held to benefit Cambridge Street Public School in Ottawa, held on the first Saturday after thanksgiving every year. It’s a great place to find anything related to sewing and needlework!

This year the Flea Market is on Saturday, October 14, 2017 at the Glebe Community Centre (175 3rd Ave at Lyon) from 10:00am to 2:00pm.  Admission is $2.00.

Donations of fabric and needlework supplies are welcome at the school (250 Cambridge St. N) before October 13.  For more information on donating, please email: thefabricfleamarket@gmail.com

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.
