More promotion

The Saulnierville Quilt show (Expo-Couverte) is featured in their calender for the month of August. 

A beautiful gift suggestion available on their website for only $19.95

Whew it seems so far away before we turn the page of the calender to August but hey! It seemed like I had just put away the Christmas decorations yesterday and out they came again.

Our Christmas Tea event was a great success and everyone had fun.
 The members  worked tirelessly and the guests enjoyed an afternoon of superb relaxation with good food and good company.
 As you can see in the picture the hall was well decorated 
 with projects made by the members  inviting the guests to admire works of art. 
 The tree stands decorated  in the corner inviting the guests to the Christmas spirit
 Christmas music serenades everyone with " Maranatha"!   
and the projects for sale at the guild's emporium.. ready for the Christmas shopper to pick out that perfect gift for someone special on their list and boy did they shop!   
Even tough it is a lot of work to put together both 
the members and the guests are all looking forward to next year's.

Up early and what to do?

How about a sewing class in the comfort of my pj's ? 


I often sign up for the Bernina webnars but this was the first at 
Daily Craft tv and it was excellent. The list of classes is extensive and the beauty of it, is I can access my class anytime I want a refresher after I have purchased it, it remains in my account for my viewing anytime. What a way to expand your knowledge and skills on your favorite hobby! Oh! yes there is more than quilting videos. 
Once we have the computer set up at the guild, we will be looking at purchasing some of these for classes,  a perfect tool to offer the members.  

 Can you tell I enjoyed my class .. and all in the comfort of my home. :)

Great fun ....

at the guild's sewing retreat ... all evening Friday and all day Saturday we sewed ...

and we sewed.... 
and we socialized.... 
and we made beautiful projects... 
a table runner in progress
Fabric gift tags
Lady bug pot holders 
Fabric bowls 
and here getting ready to make a beautiful primitive table runner with the gift of a Fat Quarter Bundle from Mrs P's Emporium in Amherst NS 

 All this sewing leaves us with lots of remnants... so what to do with these???? 

Lorraine has the idea... she cuts them into 1½ and 2½ inch squares  and packages them. Nothing goes to waste; some sewers will benefit from these precut squares.
So the guild's boutique is all stocked up for next week-end... Our big event .... the Christmas Tea. 
Next Sunday at the Saulnierville Parish Hall .... 11:00 to 4:00 .
Tea, coffee, Hot apple cider...sandwiches, sweets and lots to see. Projects on display and for sale. Lottery on a BIG basket of baking goods... 50/50 draw and a door prize. Admission $5.00 per person. 
Not to mention the fun of socializing together in a beautiful Christmas ambiance.
