Kanata Quilt Guild

Welcome Back!

We have decided to make the Welcome Flyer available electronically this year.  We will have limited quantities printed for those who don’t have access to the website or a printer.  The information on the Welcome Flyer is always available on the website, and the document itself will also be posted there.

The feedback we received is that very few of us keep the Welcome Flyer document to refer to during the year.  If that happens to be a small minority of folks, let Brigid know and we’ll make more paper copies available for October.

Don’t forget our first meeting of 2019-2020 is Thursday Septepmber 12 with a fashion show; what a way to start the year! Art Wear Ottawa’s Vikki Zuplo will present a Fashion show of their own wearable art, which they call, Streetwear with Flair”.  They typically showcase approximately 50-60 garments all made by them. Join us to be inspired!

2019-2020 Membership

Our Membership year goes from July 1, 2019 to June 30, 2020, and we will begin to accept Membership Forms and Fees for 2019-2020 at our May meeting.

Our Membership Fee is $35.00. Please bring a cheque post-dated to July 15, 2019 along with your completed Membership Form to our May 9th or June 6th meeting. If you prefer to renew after July 15, 2019, please date your cheque accordingly. A cheque is preferable to cash; we do not accept e-transfers of fees. If you prefer, you may mail your Membership Form and cheque to the mailing address which is found at the bottom of the Membership Form.

Our Membership Directory is published annually after the October meeting. If you would like to be included in the Directory, your renewal must be completed and paid by October 10, 2019.

As a special incentive to alleviate line-ups at our Membership Table in September, our Executive is offering an Earlybird Draw for Four Free 2019-2020 Memberships! The Draw will take place at the June meeting – anyone who has renewed by June 6th, 2019 is eligible for one of these very generous prizes – if you are planning to mail your Membership Form and cheque, it must be received by June 5th, 2019 to qualify for the draw. Please don’t forget that our June meeting date has been changed so that we can all attend Quilt Canada!

Quiltie Patterns

The patterns for the quilties designed by Claudette that are featured at the meetings are available for download in the “Quilties” section of the website which can be found under the “Program” menu, or by clicking here.

We love seeing all the amazing work our members put into these special quilts!
