FFAA Studio Space Opportunity (Note: see E-Blast from October 8, 2020)

EDQG has a membership with Focus on Fibre Art Association (FFAA) and one of the benefits of the membership is the ability to utilize the FFAA Studio for EDQG activities.

Presently, EDQG is using the Studio on the second Tuesday of the month from 9 until 4 for Community Service activities, and Library Services (picking up and returning books that have been ordered online).

EDQG has access to the Studio for a second day each month and is seeking your input regarding what you would like to use this day for.

Do you belong to an EDQG Bee group that would like to meet to sew?  Would you like a day dedicated to UFO projects?  There are many options and it does not need to be the same every month so please let us know how you would like to use this “free” space for quilting.

FFAA has developed guidelines that must be followed regarding its use during the COVID-19 pandemic.  These have been included below so that groups understand the restrictions and requirements should you be interested in this opportunity.

Studio Event Guidelines
The Studio can easily accommodate up to 12 people for workshops, classes and meetings while following COVID-19 2 metre physical distancing guidelines.

COVID-19 Protocol for Fibre Art Studio
This tool has been developed to support activity organizers and facility operators in reducing the risk of transmission of COVID-19 among attendees. The tool is meant to be used to assist with assessing attendees who may be symptomatic, or who may have been exposed to someone who is ill or has confirmed COVID-19.

Attendees should fill out this checklist 24 hours prior to participating in the activity or program. If an individual answers YES to any of the questions, they must not be allowed to attend or participate in the activity.

Data will only be saved for 14 days, and you must fill out the form for each visit to the facility.
