September 2021 at The Country Quilter!

Hello everyone!

It has been a long time since we had any news to send out!

 We have seen many projects that you finished during your time at home with only your stash for company. It is great to know that some 20 year+ projects are seeing the light of day again. Maybe it is time to consider some new ones! Lots of new batiks have been ordered and more Christmas fabrics are expected this week. A festive new table runner, tree skirt or pillows will help to cheer us up!

We had fun get togethers in the garden over the summer where we could safely distance. We hope to start some small classes indoors this month. Masks and 2 vaccine shots are required to attend these groups.

As September starts, we will continue the shortened hours, but the shop will be open on other days when classes are scheduled. Tues. Wed. & Sat. 10 – 1pm. Check the calendar for classes. As usual will be closed on Sept. 4 for the holiday weekend.

There will be different sale specials on Wednesdays during Sept. Watch for these!!

A note for those who attended the 2019 January Quilt Retreat, don’t forget our Fat Quarter get together on Sept. 8th at 10am. This will be outdoors, bring a lawn chair if convenient, (we do have some.) Rain date is Sept 9th. Please don’t disappoint anyone, if you can’t attend, drop off your gift in advance.

There is a Touch Quilt Workshop on Sept. 25. Please consider joining this group to make quilts for those with dementia. No quilting skills required, just a sewing machine and the desire to help. All supplies are provided. Bring a friend!

A Wool Applique reunion, for those who attended the classes before the lockdown is in the planning. It will be on the website when details are complete.

As we are limiting the number able to be attend classes, call to sign up so you don’t miss out! 613 838 5541. It is best to call when we are open to make sure the message is received. Questions can be emailed to: thecountryquilter@hotmail.com (note that this is not the address this letter came from, so don’t reply to it!)

Looking forward to seeing you again soon!

Ann
