Let’s Bee Social # 98
Welcome back to another Let’s Bee Social! Where did the week GO??????!!!!
At last week’s Let’s Bee Social, I showed you some of my progress on the Forest Friends quilt. And then mentioned that I was making preparations for the trunk show for the Oxford Quilters’ Guild. Well, I made it there! The Oxford Quilters’ Guild is so large that they have two meetings per month, one in the evening and one the next morning. I got there on Wednesday night and was delighted to meet all of the ladies from the evening meeting. What a fun time I had! But I guess I just wasn’t brave enough to get out my camera that first night. So all of these pictures are from the next morning’s meeting.
I thoroughly enjoyed meeting each and every one of these girls from the guild and being able to spend the entire time talking about quilts!
My contact, Jean Hillis is an amazing woman who is a founding member of the guild and still quite active in teaching classes and organizing events. Jean also shared news about the lovely quilt top you can see hanging on the wall on the right. This quilt will be offered as a raffle quilt for an upcoming fundraiser.
Show and Tell was up next and I was thrilled to be able to see all the beautiful works by members of the guild. Wish I would have got my camera out the night before to show the projects shared by the evening group. What a talented bunch!
The Oxford Quilter’s Guild is a LARGE group. We had about 60 present for the meeting on Wednesday night. And about 40 in attendance on Thursday morning. WOW!
One of the games prepared for the group was to branch off into subgroups according to what you would label yourself as a quilter: Traditional, Modern, Applique, Art Quilter, Paper Piecer, Scrap Quilter or Other.
Once in our respective groups, we wrote down tips to share with the other groups. I was surprised how many of the tips could cross over and be applied to the other subgroups. It was a lot of fun. And some of the answers were actually quite humourous!
What a great group of ladies and each so welcoming. It was truly a wonderful experience!
Yesterday I was spent the day teaching the Fox & Friends quilt class in Kincardine, Ontario for the Kincardine Sunset Quilters’ Guild. I’ll have to share the detail of that meeting for next week!
