December Meeting will be our annual Christmas Tea hosted by the Executive Committee.  It will take place at COTA at 9:30 am on Thursday, December 8th.  Please remember to bring Show & Share, and if possible, a contribution to the food hamper. There will be tea and goodies, and two guest speakers. (Transition House has a list of foods they are in need of, and would greatly appreciate as follows: pasta sauce, canned soups, juice boxes, granola bars, Kraft dinner, ramen noodles, canned fish, pasta, coconut milk, and canned lentils.)

Once again a HUGE thank you to Shar for asking some excellent questions to the right people!!

Fundraising

Our latest fundraising venture is an easy one. Next time you need to fuel up your vehicle, go to a Peninsula Co Op gas station and use the Guild's co op number.  The membership number is 140033, can be shared with any family members or friends to support the Guild.  Use it whenever you make purchases from Peninsula Co-op or participating Save-On Gas. At the end of the year, the Guild will earn a rebate, based on the dollar amount of purchases members have made throughout the year.

 

 

Please let me know if you have any questions.  thank you for your support!

An ad hoc fundraising committee has been set up to brainstorm ideas to raise funds for the Guild.  Ideas have included selling Purdy's, retreats, a calendar, making patterns, craft sale, pancake breakfast and more.  If you have any ideas or wish to join the committee, please email westshorequiltersguild@gmail.com with fundraising in the subject line. 

Charity Fundraising

You are invited to take part in a new fundraising program using Fairway Market Community Shopping Cards. These reloadable cards are similar to the Smile Cards we've used in the past but these are for use at Fairway Markets.

 

To take part in this program, please pick up your reloadable Fairway Market card from Shar.

Load or re-load your card at any check out counter at any of the 10 Fairway Market stores on Vancouver Island. Use any means of payment including your favourite credit card to collect points or miles. You may re-load between $20 and $500 each time and you can re-load the same card multiple times.   

WQG automatically receives 5% from Fairway Market for every dollar loaded on the card.

This month the Block Lotto Is the Regatta Time - sailing boat

Always a delight for the eye on a sunny summer’s day is a flotilla of colourful little sailboats scudding across a sparkling lake or out from the shore on the sea under gentle breezes, all festooned in their most festive party rigging for a fun Regatta. Under bright and happy blue skies, deck out your pretty little vessels in jolly colour combinations that defy naval convention. A quilt of these cheerful pint-sized boats will bring happy smiles to kids, cottagers, mariners, or would-be sailors of all ages. Sew easy! - Create a fleet!! Due by or at the August meeting.
