November 2022 Meeting

The next meeting is November 27th.

Our November event includes both a Sew Day and Regular Meeting at Home Inn and Suites (253 Willis Crescent). Come and Go from 9 am to 8 pm (free for members) with a Lunch Break at 12 pm and Meeting from 2 to 4 pm. We regret that we didn’t have enough registrations for workshops but hopefully we are just postponing this to a less busy time of year.

Please RSVP for the sew day via saskatoonmqg@gmail.com and let us know if you are able to bring an iron, ironing board, or cutting mat to share. Members that are only able to attend the meeting should arrive by 2 p.m. Try to remember to bring your name tags! For those that are new, we encourage our members to wear their own stitched name tags.

Education Topic

Chery Arkison will stream in to the big screen at 2:00 to deliver a trunk show as part of our meeting. This will be free for members. If you want to take in the trunk show, you can join us in person or you can sign in from home.

Meeting Agenda

  • Trunk show
  • Show & Tell and Book, Blog, or Bolt – Show us what you’ve made and your works in progress. We all want to know what new and interesting things YOU know about.
  • Traveling quilts – Explanation, if needed (planned for 2023)
  • Elections – Bev will be stepping down as treasurer. Please do not avoid the meeting because you are afraid of being put on the spot for an Executive role. We are all willing to continue and we have a volunteer for the treasurer role. Though we welcome a change in leadership if anyone wants to take on a role!

Please note that we are starting traveling quilts in the new year. If you are interested, please email us to confirm your spot!

October 2022 Meeting Review

The Saskatoon MQG met on October 23rd for a sew day. This was hosted at Home Inn & Suites. Thank you so much to Sherry for leading the meeting as the rest of the Executive disappeared throughout the week. We so wanted to be there but work and health prevented it. She was a super star as she managed to come up with a new education topic, register 4 new members, took photos, and handled the hotel. We are so fortunate to have her as part of our guild! These quilts make me feel like Fall is here, and they add to the excitement of Halloween.

Next meeting is November 27th at Queen’s Retreat and Renewal Centre at 601 Taylor Street W., Conference Room A in the basement. There will be a trunk show that is free to attend for members. Remember there is still time to sign up for Cheryl Arkison’s workshops on November 26th and 27th. Email bev.murray.drew@gmail.com for the form. There should be a few spots still available for non-members.
