November news

Special Offer – Melissa’s Book

We heard that Melissa’s second book – Edge to Edge with the Walking Foot – is selling out locally. We have arranged an order of her books directly with her and can save on the shipping cost. The cost will be around $30 but will be confirmed when we get the invoice. If you would like one, let Leslie know. When the books arrive, you can pay for them by eTransfer and arrange delivery with Leslie. Lesliewhitby6@gmail.com

November Charity Block Challenge

For those interested in participating in November’s block challenge, please find the directions below.  This block pattern was taken from “Block a Day” by Lucinda Ganderton.  The block is called “Square Cross”
For our challenge, I ask that you use low volume white on white as the background, and your choice of color for the cross. (See two samples below).
Deadline for block:  I am aiming for these blocks to be completed by next meeting in December – of course if you need extra time, please reach out to me so I can wait before piecing the top together.
Once you are finished the block, please email me and I will arrange for pick up or drop off.  (Drop offs are in Kanata North and Merivale)
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Carol


Christmas Giving Campaign

Christmas is coming early this year!  To continue our long standing tradition of giving at our December meetings to both the Shepherds of Good Hope (hats, mitts, socks, etc) and the Kanata Food Cupboard (food drive), we have set up a fundraising campaign with Canada Helps, an online organization that raises funds for charities.  Instead of collecting food and clothing, we will be donating directly to these two worthy causes this year.  We hope you will help us fill our basket full of donations.

The campaign is set to run until the day of our December meeting when we will announce our total funds raised at that time.   

The campaign was setup where donors names show, but you can select to hide your name if you wish and no one will be the wiser.  We hope you will join us in giving generously and continuing our tradition of supporting these two worthy causes by clicking here : www.canadahelps.org/en/pages/kanata-quilt-guild-christmas-giving-campaign
