Guild Garage Sale – Save the Date!

Save the Date – Friday, September 10

Depending on the pandemic regulations in late summer, the Kanata Quilt Guild will be sponsoring a garage sale at the Kanata Legion, 70 Hines Road on September 10 from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Sales tables for members ($10.00 each) will be available for those wishing to display quilting/sewing materials, supplies and handcrafted items for others to purchase. 

More information will be sent to members when the province announces further lifting of restrictions.

The general public is invited to join us so let your friends know the possibility of a great garage sale.

Please let Lynn Price know by email to treasurer@kanataquiltguild.com if you could volunteer to assist us at the legion on September 10th.

Charity and Quilties Update

In light of the provincial and local efforts to curtail the COVID-19 spread, we have decided to pause our Charity and Quilties Programs to respect the stay at home order.  We ask you to hold onto the Charity quilts and Quilties that you have been making until the lock down ends. At that time, we will be able to share resources to finish these projects and collect them. The Queensway Carleton hospital, the maternity parents and our charity partners appreciate all your contributions and we encourage you to continue. Thank you for all your efforts.
Of course, we will continue to meet online. We would like to remind you to submit pictures of your finished quilts for the 2 Presidents’ Challenges (flying geese, and architectural) to Brigid by Sunday May 9 so that we can prepare the submissions for the Viewer Choice awards. Please use President’s Challenge as your subject line.  Looking forward to your submissions.
