John from Art East Quilting Co. sent the following message:  
I wanted to thank you, once again, for having me present to your guild last week. It is always fun to share my work and see the reactions it gets from others. 
You may remember some information about my upcoming Spring Release Party, but I wanted to personally invite you and the members of your guild, to attend this virtual event!
This event will take place over Zoom on Tuesday, March 22nd, at 8:00 PM Eastern and is FREE to join and open to all!
I will be doing an early release of my three upcoming patterns during the event. In addition, I will be showing off five new quilts, releasing new kits and products, offering exclusive discounts that will only be available to those who attend, as well as giving away some fantastic prizes! Participants will also be able to ask questions and interact through chat during the event. 
Everyone who attends will automatically be entered in a draw to win an Art East Quilting Co. pattern bundle and sticker set valued at over $100.00. Other prizes up for grabs that evening include a Ruby Star Society Jelly Roll on the Heirloom collection by Alexia Marcelle Abegg and a 26-piece Ruby Star Society Fat Quarter Bundle of the Unruly Nature Collection by Jen Hewett!
I have included the Zoom invite in this email, please feel free to share it with the members of your guild, or any other quilty friends you think will enjoy the party! The link will also be available to access throughout the website, Instagram and Facebook the day of the event. 
Thank you!

In Person Sew Day – Wednesday, November 17th

We are excited to have an in-person sew day on November 17 at the Kanata Legion from 9 am to 4 pm. The KQG adheres to all current provincial and municipal COVID guidelines.  If you exhibit any signs associated with COVID, please DO NOT ENTER the facility.  

To attend you will have to show proof of double vaccination and you will sign in at the main entrance for contact tracing purposes. Please sign in first and then unload your supplies at the back door.  Maintain social distancing.  

Masks will be worn except for eating or drinking or sitting at your table.  Hand sanitizer and the disinfecting solution will be available. It will be your responsibility to disinfect your table and chair upon departure. Bring your own lunch and drinks. Kitchen facilities will not be available.

If the number of Covid cases in Ottawa rises to a concerning level or restrictions are put in place by authorizing health agencies, the sew day will happen over Zoom instead.  We will keep you informed.  

We hope you enjoy the day and being with your guild colleagues!  

Christmas Giving Campaign

We’re doing it again!   We’ve gone virtual for our Christmas Giving Campaign.  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 middle of December, we will keep you posted on our progress at our monthly meetings.

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
