AFTERNOON PROGRAMS


Our Afternoon Programs are open to all. We start at 1 pm sharp and run to about 2 pm. The schedule below is a revision of the one originally published in our newsletter.

Tues Oct 3, 2017    Make and Take: Fabric Frame
Frames made of fabric that can stand alone, can be customized to suit your stitched piece and can easily be collapsed flat. What could me more useful? Make your own today.

Tues Oct 17, 2017   Renata Georgeff: A Look at Your Creative Self
An interesting hour with a member of our guild leading a short workshop looking at your own style of creativity. We will incorporate a few fun things to do during this exploration of your creative side.

Tues Nov 7, 2017   Remembrance Day: Vimy Ridge 100 years ago
Today's program is based on the oak trees grown near here and shipped back to Vimy Ridge this 100th year. We will sew a needle-lace acorn as remembrance of the soldiers at Vimy Ridge, learn the story of the trees and the young soldier who sent acorns home to Canada in WW1.

Tues Nov 21, 2017   Make and Take: Magnetic Needle Minder
Make a needle minder that attaches magnetically to the fabric you are stitching. No more lost needles.

Tues Dec 5, 2017    Millie Cunningham: Using vintage linens in your stitching
Millie is a local quilter from Fergus, who will visit us with her trunk show of beautiful wall quilts she has made using many vintage linens and heirloom handwork, such as crochet, incorporated into her fabric art.

NEWS


  • November 18, 2017
    Our Nov 21 meeting will be our 5th class. Stay for the Afternoon Program - the magnetic needle minder. We'll also have the mobile sharpening service Sharp My Knife outside. We invited SMK so we could get our sewing scissors back to their best. They take cash or cheque only. Nov 28 is an extra stitching opportunity as we'll have Christmas mini-workshops all morning. 9:30 start, as usual, and we'll go until noon.
  • Guild Classes
    September 24, 2017
    Classes have now begun at the Guild. Memberships may be taken out at any time during the year but you should check in to see if a Fall class that is already underway can accept another student. There are still spaces in some Winter classes. Our Afternoon Program schedule has been revised from the one posted in our Newsletter. See the Home page for the revised Afternoon Program schedule.
