April at The Country Quilter!

As classes are planned for April and May we are happy to be able to accommodate more people in the classroom. We are asking that you continue to wear your mask in the shop.

Knotty Girls, Friday, April 8th and Wool Applique, Wednesday, April 13th will resume again. We look forward to the new ideas that Lynne has found on her visit to Australia.

 The Machine Applique Gnome class is full, but you can still sign up to receive the patterns each month.

There is another opportunity for you to donate a half day to help make Touch Quilts, Saturday, April 23. These quilts are a comfort for those with dementia. The finished quilts are donated to local care homes.

Tracy has planned a Modern Scrappy Quilt that will use up some of those scraps lurking (and growing) in your sewing room on Wed, April 27 and May 4th, from 10-1pm.

We are hoping that we will be able to have our Garden Quilt Show this year. Mark Saturday, June 18 on your calendar.

Many of you have been busy making quilts to donate to charity during the lockdowns. I have seen quilts for the Veterans Home, quilts for survivors of residential schools, Touch Quilts and Baby Quilts for the Queensway Carleton Hospital. We are asking for photos of these quilts for a display at the quilt show. Please print out a photo and put your name on it and the charity where you are donating the quilt.

If you made a quilt for the Veterans’ Home you might want to look at the web site to see some on beds in the residence. Google “Veterans Home Ottawa”.

Check out the sales this month on the calendar! 🌷🐰☔
