Our newest Special Interest Group is for anyone who would like to connect with other long armers within the guild. The group is set up on a private site (on groups.io) that allows us to message, share photos and build tables of information to share, such as the machines we each use and our experiences with specific threads. Currently there is a Zoom chat the third Thursday of the month at 1 pm with no specific program. New members are welcome at any time. Please email Süz Warkentin (see your member directory).

Guild-wide virtual sew day
Dec 18 @ 10:00 am – 3:00 pm

Alyson Anker hosts a Saturday Sew Day on the Saturday following the monthly membership meeting. The link to the meeting is emailed to the mailing list a day or two before each Saturday Sew Day.  Do you want to sew, chat, catch up? Please join your fellow RCQG’rs and work on whatever you wish…. or nothing at all. This event is informal and open to anyone in the guild. If you have questions or need help with something, someone may be able to help. If you want to chat with just a few friends, we can set up breakout rooms.

We hope to see you at some point on a Saturday. Drop in when you can and drop out when you must. As long as the room is open, you’re welcome to join us. If you have trouble joining, call 519-820-8190 or email Alyson.anker@gmail.com

Stash Busters Special Interest Group
Jan 5 @ 9:30 am – 3:30 pm
Do you have a fabric stash you’d like to bust? No stash, but love to sew? The Stash Busters would love to meet you. We are an informal group of quilters from a number of guilds in the area. The group meets from 9:30 to 3:30 on the first Wednesday of each month. Come when you can. Leave when you must.
We are a member-led group of quilters with a wide range of skill levels. We work on a new project in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. A volunteer from the group presents a new project every few months but participants work at their own pace. Projects range from placemats to quilts and bags. Download the Stash Busters Project Information Resource Sheet here.
The group’s co-leaders are Sue Foard and Adriana Fagan. If you’d like more information about our group, please send an email to stashbusters@royalcityquiltersguild.ca
But, there’s more!
RCQG’s Community Outreach Team will provide a kit for Stash Busters projects to interested RCQG member participants. If you’d like to sew from RCQG’s stash, please send an email to Katrina Baklarz by September 15. She and the Community Outreach team she will arrange for you to pick up a Confetti Cake kit at one of the Community Outreach Bins around town before the end of September. When you finish your top, you can turn it in to the same bin or request batting and backing to quilt it!
Now, let’s go bust some stash!
