Greetings from The Country Quilter!

Update from The Country Quilter for January 2021

Thank you to all our loyal quilters who continued to support us during this past year of uncertainty.

The shop will be closed during the provincial lockdown.

We saw many stash quilts and ufo projects completed, as well as new projects started. Meters of batting and wide backing fabric went out the door indicating that projects were being completed. 

Yesterday I sewed some fabric into a quilt that was left over from a maternity dress I made when expecting my now 35-year-old son! Yes, it has geese wearing kerchiefs on it!! A fun memory to stitch into the quilt.

We still have 100% cotton batting and 80/20 batting by the meter. Silk, wool and poly batting are available in queen size. New 108-inch backings arrived as we were closing for the holidays.

We have elastic and the filter fabric for mask making, Steam a seam, spray baste, mistie fuse, solid black cotton and much more. New batiks have arrived too.

Our quilters continued to be exceedingly generous with their talents, making baby quilties for the hospital, toddler quilts for Iqaluit, and larger lap and single size quilts for the veterans’ home. In November we donated 42 quilts to the home, and have more that arrived after that. These will be passed along in the new year. Our CANHAVE sale of handmade items brought in $150. More of these items are still available. We also look forward to selling our unique door quilts later in the year for CANHAVE. Keep up the good work!

If you need something to help you with your projects the shop will be open for back door pick up on Wed. Jan. 13, 10am – 1pm. You need to email your order in ahead of time so that things can be prepared for pick up. thecountryquilter@hotmail.com  

Looking forward to seeing everyone in the better times to come. Please take care and stay well until then.

May 2021 be a happier, healthy year for us all.

Ann

Veteran’s House Project!

Ottawa’s Multifaith Housing Initiative focuses on providing shelter and support for homeless Veterans. Their recent project is scheduled to open in January 2021 and hopes to house at least 40 homeless veterans in the former Rockcliffe Air Base.

The Country Quilter asked its ‘family’ to step up to the challenge of providing quilts for this project. We are proud to announce that 41 quilts have been donated, with possibly a few more to come!

Below are photos of some of these beautifully created projects.

Thanks to all our quilters who have continued to make quilts for our charity projects. Yesterday 12 baby quilts were delivered to the Queensway Carleton Nursery. These quilts are approximately 24 inches, made of 100% cotton fabric and washed when finished. This is an activity of The Richmond Guild and we are helping out by collecting them, for delivery while the Guild is not meeting.

Housing for Homeless Veterans, August 2020

HOUSING FOR HOMELESS VETERANS IN OTTAWA
