The May meeting closes out a great year for York Heritage Guild, with thanks to the old executive and in with the new, photo below.
Then the guild viewed and voted on the quilts from the President’s Challenge. Armed with fabric donated by Rosemary Hamelin’s family, guild members made quilts inspired by Rosemary’s life- geologist, mother, world traveller and quilter. Such a great display made choosing a favourite very difficult. Here are all the quilts that were entered in this challenge:
Then the viewer’s choice quilts were announced- Jan McGoey won in the large quilt category, Carole Tullis won in the wall quilt category for her whimsical bird, and Wendy Dines won for the backpack she made. Congratulations to the winners, and all those who entered!
And the winner of President’s Choice is Marilyn Barker, with her quilt Masai Welcome.
Here are the lucky winners of the kimonos with their prizes:
The big reveal of next year’s lineup of speakers and workshops happened near the end of the meeting, and there was a frenzy of people getting their names on the sign up list for early registration. Looks like next year promises to be a great one!
Thanks for a great year, and see you all in September!
