March 2021 UFO Challenge:

I remember when I moved to Victoria from Edmonton over 25 years ago I was so in awe of the shades of green I saw all around me.  So for our UFO challenge for March 2021 let's celebrate GREEN in all its variations! It also fits right in with celebrating any Irish roots we may have with St. Paddy's Day coming up next week.

Remember to post your before and after photos on our Facebook page and/or the Guild website.  Donna S.

Happy 2021 everyone! 2020 was a different year for the world. We have learned to connect to each other while social distancing. Keeping in touch with our friends and family in various ways. Even an old dog like me has learnt a new technology, Zoom.

 

I’d like to invite you to join our guild. We are a fun low key guild. We share ideas, tips and tricks with our fellow members. We are very active with our charities and community. Join us and make new friends and learn new techniques in a fun and friendly atmosphere. Contact membership for information on how to join.

 

Happy in sewing
