MIA!!!! Missing our 30 cup coffee pot
from the sewing room. If you borrowed it for an event and have it at your
house or know of its whereabouts , please call June at 7281.

wine and kudos are needed for such a job!

Quilts--Carol Janzen from the PC Park makes quilts for adult
homeless folks in CG. Will take almost anything that would not be suitable for
Community Quilts or Quilts of Valor if you are destashing.
Quilts of Valor--the
Gentleman who won this year's QOV quilt this year at the Quilt Show has a group
that has committed to making a walnut quilt stand for next year's quilt show
that will be donated in 2018...and every year thereafter.
Club--40 shrugs where donated to the Oasis Nursing Centre where
our dear Flo was. 8 shrugs were donated to cancer patients and a scarf was made
for a number of the main Park staff members. Thanks to Debbie
Oliver and Ahna Marie Ericksen for their time and
expertise in helping the Serger Club learn how to use their
Baby Blankets and Onesies--40
sets went to the Pregnancy Centre and the rest were delivered to the hospital.
They were very appreciative of the bundles of cuteness! Thanks to Jan
Masselink for organizing this community project and Quilt til you

Peg Keenan said a farewell to
all of us as this is her last year in the Park. She shared that she was there in
the beginning 19 years ago when the guild was a fledgling! Thank you to Peg and
Connie for getting us going so many years ago. Many friendships, much laughter
and lots of hugs and projects have resulted because of your vision. We wish you
well! Keep in touch. <3

of you not returning to the park, thank you for sharing your projects and love
of quilting with us! We wish you well in all your continued endeavours.
