September meeting - the start of a new season

Our new season started on September 11th.  As usual, we had several members come in the morning to spend the day working on many different projects.  The church ladies provided a delicious meal of sweet & sour meatballs with all the fixings, followed by a delicious dessert.  The official meeting started at 7:30 pm when programs for the coming year were announced.
For the past year, and going forward, we are covered by our own insurance policy.  This has necessitated an increase in our membership dues to $50 per year.  That works out to $5 per meeting and is still an inexpensive way to spend your evening. 
Membership gives you:
  •  a monthly newsletter
  • access to our wonderful library of quilting and needlework books
  • the opportunity to join in sewing days and catered dinners
  • guest speakers exhibiting a wide array of quilts with related lectures and classes
  • easy access to members with lots of expertise and the willingness to share knowledge
  • fabric swaps, block exchanges, structured quilt block lessons, raffle draws
  • social break at every meeting with coffee, tea, and a selection of desserts
This year we are running a Sampler Quilt program that is based on the Underground Railroad quilts.  So don't miss the next meeting!

Coming up on October 9th:

Kathy Thompson from Simcoe is giving a quilt related talk on the history of the Underground Railroad.
