Our Open House was a big success with a few hundred visitors who enjoyed the embroidery and packed the Tea Room. Classes will resume in September. If you missed Open House, catch us at the St. Jacobs Quilt and Fibre Art Festival from May 22-25 or at the Black Sheep Festival of Contemporary Textile Art on July 7 in Elora. We’ll have displays at both events.
The Guelph Tool Library is putting out a call for sewing machines and sewing tools to go to the far North. For more information, see this Guelph Mercury article.
Pat B will be donating. If you also have a machine that you would like to donate, Pat would be happy to deliver it for you if you can get it to her at the AGM or at Open House. It’s always a shipping problem to get machines & supplies to the north so this is a great opportunity to send some much-used tools to remote communities.
