Here you have it! Fresh in from the New Year, and we have the results in our Stitch Across Canada Challenge for last month. It seems that Canadian quilters took a much needed break in the month of December as we didn't get quite as far as we would have liked. We have stopped just before Regina, Saskatchewan for the month. Let's make it our New Year's resolution to ramp up our stitches. We only have 2 months left to meet our challenge of going right across the country and we are going to need every stitch we can get. Let's go quilters!
Here are members Arlene Johns, Hazel Mark, and Donna Gonek measuring Arlene's quilt from the High River and District Handicrafts Guild.
Donna Schweda from Quilting Corners in Alliston writes,"We're a busy guild with 54 members who make regular contributions to our local charities. Twice a year we have a presentation of comfort quilts to My Sister's Place. In December we also present stockings for their holiday efforts. At our December meeting, we were happy to offer 40 comfort Quilts and 43 Christmas stockings. As you can see, it makes quite a display !'
One fantastic way to make some stitches count is join in our Youth Challenge - with the theme of 'Your Favourite Food'. What better way to have fun quilting then to do it with a younger person. It can be the size of a postcard, placemat, or wallhanging, size doesn't matter! Northcott is sponsoring this wonderful challenge and that means fabulous fabric! Check out the details and get stitching, as it ends February 28, 2013, the same time as our Stitch Across Canada Challenge.
