WELCOME New Members!
We welcome new members to the Guild. Additionally, current members may invite a friend to a meeting as a guest, make sure you introduce them at the meeting.
WHERE we meet:
We meet at the Community Room at CASA which is in downtown Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada (230 – 8th Street South).
WHEN we meet:
Meetings commence at 7pm. Next meeting is Tuesday March 21st.
WHAT do we do at meetings:
We do all sorts of fun program activities. Sometimes we will have a special guest speaker, trunk shows and demos. The guild also organizes retreats, Sew All Day events, classes and Community Quilt projects.
Draws: We also do two different draws at each meeting; one is free for members, you will request a free ticket from the ticket table and later on in the meeting a ticket will be drawn and the member will win the prize. We get our prizes from the various local quilt stores in the area and it will be fabric, notions, etc. The second draw is $1 per ticket or $2 for 3 tickets. You can buy as many tickets as you like. They go back into guild funds for buying more draw prizes. If you would like to see the prizes, they will be displayed where you purchase the tickets at the Guild meeting.
Community Quilts is the donation of guild member-made quilts (regular and dolly sized). We have some patterns available (please refer to the pattern links on this website), and you can learn more about those from the Community Quilt table. The guild funds the batting and backing for the quilts. If you have a quilt top ready, come over to the Community Quilt table to get the backing and batting.
