AFTERNOON PROGRAMS


Our Afternoon Programs are open to all. We start at 1 pm sharp and run to about 2 pm. September will have a whole new slate of events. Meanwhile, have a look at what we did earlier this year to get an idea of the types of programs we like to have.

Jan 16   Demo Day
We are starting the New Year with a Demo Day that includes some interesting and useful topics that will be demonstrated in small groups at different stations.

Jan 30   Feb 20   Make and Take: Hand Felting
Hand felting is fun and after a short demonstration by Hazel Alexander, everyone will make something to take home.

Feb 20  Jan 30   Make and Take : Jar Ring scrap thread holder
This is a handy little item to put in your sewing box. The holder collapses and goes into your sewing box almost flat.

Mar 6   Stash Sale!!! FUN FUN FUN
Clean out your stash cupboard and then buy more! Our yearly fun activity. You never know what will turn up this day.

Mar 20   Thread-Painting technique
Learn basic thread-painting techniques and make a simple flower design using these stitches. This is a great little project to pack when you travel or are sitting outside this summer and just need to stitch to relax.

April 3   Get Inspired
Donna Funnell, a long-time member of our guild, will be doing a trunk show. She will bring in many pieces of her work to show us her journey from a traditional quilter to the creative, talented embroiderer she is today.

  • Travel Tags project
    May 21, 2018

    We’ve received an email from Anne Kelly letting us know about her Travel Tags project, which was in London, England. If you are interested in participating the Canadian show, have a look at Anne’s blog for the details. If you include your address, tags will be returned to you once the show is over. You may still have the tag you made at Guild last year and it may match Anne’s template (10 cm x 6 cm). It’s a small project with lots of potential for fun!
