Calendar Project - As an upcoming fundraiser, we are planning a calendar for 2024. Please consider submitting an entry to this project. We are on the cusp of Spring weather and, therefore, outdoor photography will be easier.
However, indoor settings are lovely as well - perhaps draped over the beautiful staircase at the Art Gallery, at the 4 Mile Restaurant, 17 Mile pub by the fireplace, local community museum, one of our many flower or plant shops - all it takes is a phone call or a drop-in visit to ask if they would allow it and what time of day would be best - then the picture taking can be arranged. Rhodo season is almost here as well, imagine your quilt beside a gorgeous Rhodo bush or magnolia tree or in a field of daffodils, snow crocuses, Camas lilies. What setting would enhance your quilt design, colours?
We have received several wonderful entries and are expecting many more entries over the next few months prior to our July 15 cut-off. We have so many amazing and prolific quilters in our Guild.
Remember this is a fundraiser for OUR guild. The main criteria is the photographs need to be in landscape format.
Please contact Marlyn S at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone if you have questions or need help with the
photography. Click here for the submission form.
Have fun with this! Your Calendar Committee, Marlyn S, Lorelei R, Sue D.
Our speaker, Jen Houlden at the March meeting was truly inspiring!! Please check your email for a generous limited time offer for our guild to make a discounted purchase on her website.
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 chocolates, retreats, a calendar, making patterns, craft sale, pancake breakfast and more. If you have any ideas or wish to join the committee, please email email@example.com with fundraising in the subject line.
