Gatherings is a new programme offered by the WCQG. This new monthly in-person programme was created to enable members to meet, sew, socialize and learn. From October to June, from 10:30 am to 3:30 pm, on the first Wednesday of the month, there will be space for members who wish to sew. There will be an opportunity to pick up and deliver supplies and projects to SMILE and PAL and other outreach projects. The library will be open to take out and return library books. There will be an opportunity to participate in the UFO Challenge and Strippers Club.
In addition, there will be a Featured Member sharing works and/or techniques, enabling members to enhance their quilting talents.
Gatherings is a new initiative for WCQG members, so any and all feedback and suggestions are welcome.
Elaine LaRonde & Jean McFarlane.
For the safety of the membership, Gatherings will adhere to health and safety guidelines established by the Region of Waterloo and the WCQG Executive.
At this time proof of vaccination and masking are required to enter the room for any purpose. We will continue to monitor Covid health guidelines and numbers, but given the age demographic of our membership we are taking these current extra precautions.
