I am looking forward to working with all of you as we sew and gather precious quilts for designated charities.
We need to think on which charities to support this 2020-2021 year and your suggestions would be helpful.
Currently I am gathering twin sized quilts for the Sleep in Heavenly Peace Charity which gives beds and bedding to children. This will finish off our commitment for last year.
The EDQG has been offered space at the Focus on Fibre Art Association’s (FFAA) new studio space at 9532 – 87 St NW, Edmonton (Strathearn mini mall). We will give it a try on Tuesday, September 8th to see what we can do in that space under current COVID-19 conditions.
I will open the studio from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm. A few of us will organize the donated fabric, EDQG labels and donated quilts. Other members may drop off charity quilts, pick up fabric and labels and maybe a kit.
I encourage all of you to post pictures of your quilts on the EDQG Members Facebook page as that is our show and tell site.
If the studio works for us, we will have other days for charity quilt organization and other guild business as needed on October 13th, November 10th, and December 8th.
Alberta Health Service guidelines apply and masks are required to enter the studio.
