Thursday May 7th Guild Meeting Moved
to Muskoka Highlands Golf Course
Due to the horrendous conditions outside the arena, we are going to hold the May Guild meeting at The Muskoka Highlands Golf Course in the clubhouse. Same time; different place!
Muskoka Highlands Golf Course
1036 South Monck Drive
Head west on Hwy 118 (toward Port Carling) about 1 km from Bracebridge Canadian Tire Store. Turn right on South Monck Drive (at Centennial Animal Hospital) and drive to the first driveway on the right (Muskoka Lawn Bowl green will be on your left as you drive up the driveway). Lots of parking in the upper lot or the one on the north side of the Lawn Bowl green. Please save area nearest the clubhouse for those with mobility challenges.

May 9th and 10th – Gail Berry-Graham is our guest speaker and workshop presenter this month. According to Gail, it took her 20 years to finish her first quilt! And like many of us her journey into quilting was a “series of paths”, not a direct route! Gail teaches classes, conducts lectures/trunk shows and offers long-arm quilting services.
Gail’s lecture is titled “Threadology”. She will discuss the different weights and types of thread, how to use them and when to use them.
For those taking her workshop on Friday (still space available – contact Linda at email@example.com) this information is included with an opportunity to try a variety of threads on a domestic machine.
We think you will thoroughly enjoy Gail’s presentation and class as she shares her passion for quilting with us.
June 13th – Our Pot Luck Lunch!
