NEWS

  • Changes for 2020-21
    August 31, 2020

    Reluctantly, we have made the decision to forego classes for the 2020-2021 year. Thus we have reduced our membership fees for the year to $40 for all types of members.


    Our postponed Annual General Meeting will take place via Zoom on Tuesday September 15th at 10 am. As a treat, we will be having the Brown Bag Challenge Great Reveal at the meeting. Cathy Lysnes will bring us up to date on our financial position. We also have a few Executive positions to vote on.


    If you have not used Zoom before, you might want to test it out on Tuesday Sept 1 at 10 am when Catherine will be hosting a meeting just for you to try it out. If you are already a member of the Guild, you will have received the information you need to join the meeting in your newsletter. If you are not yet a member but want to attend, please email us and we’ll send you the credentials you’ll need.


    We also plan to meet once a month, via Zoom, with something of interest.


    Tues Oct 20th will be a talk on Crazy Quilting by Judy Eckhardt.
    Tues Nov 17th will be a Christmas project.
    Tues Dec 1st will be another Christmas project.


    All the meetings above will start at 10 am.

  • March Update
    March 27, 2020

    It is with a heavy heart that I must announce the cancellation of all remaining CEGG meetings for the rest of our fiscal year, ending April 30th. This includes classes, workshop, AGM and Open House. Your executive team has made this decision in response to health advice to limit group meetings as a deterrent to the spread of Covid-19.

    If you have borrowed library books or magazines, please put them in a safe place and plan to return them when we resume.
    If you paid for the April 9th workshop with Donna Funnell, you will be getting a full refund.

    On Sept.15th, we plan to have a combined AGM, pot luck lunch, and Registration. Please stay tuned for further details.

    Open House, our year-end show, will sadly not happen this year. But do save your projects for display at a 2-year Mega-Open House in 2021. It’s a great time to finish those UFO’s!

    The St.Jacob’s Quilt Show, where we display our work, is still currently scheduled for May 26th but subject to change. [this is now cancelled -Ed]

    Our website cegguelph.ca will be updated as we progress during this uncertain time.

    “We pull together by staying apart.” Happy nesting and best wishes to you all. Have a wonderful stitch-full summer!

    Renata Georgeff, President
