Considering it is the dead of winter and there isn’t much choice for travelers like us, leaving Inuvik and heading to Brock, we hopped on a plane and flew in a bee-line to
Plus there is no road anyway.
In January the average high in
Yellowknife is -20°C
and the low is -27°C.
I’m sure we will get a warm reception when we visit our member guild, the Yellowknife Quilters Guild, who contributed almost 18 thousand inches to help get us here.
The Penticton Quilters Guild reported over 43 thousand inches this month, mostly from one quilter who stitched almost half a mile (I don’t think she sleeps).
And from the
Guild when they sent me their inches: “at our last meeting, the sister of one
of our members came as a guest. I was quite excited to see she brought a
"show and tell" - a few more inches for our coffers! However, when I
snuck out my measuring tape and mumbled "Walk to Brock" she was
immediately on to my mission...and the inches were saved to be reported by her
own guild in Thunder Bay.
We enjoyed viewing her quilt nevertheless!”
Now that's the competitive spirit=)
Looking forward to seeing how far we get next month. Keep it up quilters!
