Goose on the Loose Shop Hop: Thanks to everyone who came to our event. It was a lot of fun. I am sure you are now knowledgeable about batting. Keep that handout handy.

A shop hop with a difference. No passport required.
Where ever you travel from June 21st until Sept. 6th
2016 check the area for participating shops. This is a happening event in 8
provinces and most of the United States. Each shop will give you their row
design free. There is a website to get the
details of this very exciting and different event
www.rowbyrowexperience.com On the home page you click the
licence plates for the different provinces and you will have a list of shops
participating. It started in the USA so if you are going south of the
border during this time, check the site for the United States. There is
also a Facebook page for those of you who use that. Any questions, please
ask. We will do our best to explain it and if we don’t know we will do our
best to find the answers. See you in the summer. We have to say, we had a
blast last year and met so many fabulous people. Our quilters said the same
thing about their travels. In Ontario, the motto is Yours to Discover!
Good Shepherd Food: This is a completely volunteer run organization. At The Lane you will find a basket where you can leave food donations or if you prefer you may leave a cheque and the volunteers will mail you a tax deduction. We thank you for your continued support.

Also it gives us time to make the coffee and tea and set up for your activity. We appreciate your enthusiasm and will very much appreciate you thinking of us setting up for you.
Paper Piecing Part 2: Once you know the basics
of paper piecing but may have wondered how to do I get started and what

closer to what we need to do. It is just too bad that Carl is such an
awesome quilter and cannot get time to work on this project. Poor Carl.

We will also be offering in the future a TEE SHIRT QUILT. This is specifically for those people who have a collection of tee shirts that they want to remember and put them into a quilt. We have discovered a new process for this and it makes a lot of sense but we want to test it out before we present it. To be able to enjoy this workshop, you will need to know how to use your sewing machine. We will go from there. So if you are waiting for this opportunity, get familiar with your machine, get it serviced if you have not loved using it for some time and then we will gather to make those tee shirts into something to love again in a new way. The book has arrived! The stabilizer has been ordered so let’s get together May 25th at 10: 00 until 3:30 and get these memories started! Workshop fee $20.00
