    Jane Roszell will lead us through a Touch Quilts workshop. These quilts, also known as Sensory Activity Blankets, are small lap quilts to be be donated to the Ottawa-Carleton Association for Persons with Developmental Disabilities. 

    They provide sensory and tactile stimulation for restless or “fidgety” hands of someone with developmental challenges.  They give comfort, and relax hearts and minds.  Quilts are pieced from fabrics with a variety of textures and colours, and accented with simple accessories, such as pockets, laces, trims, appliques, buttons, secured beads, ribbons, braids etc. for added interest.

    All supplies provided.

    All are welcome. Come out for a fun day and learn new applications for your quilting skills!

    Bring your sewing machine, scissors and strong thread, and your lunch.

    Want some company while you're stitching in the ditch??

    Our In-Town Retreat is a great opportunity to get together and sew!  Bring an unfinished project that you're working on or start something new and share your ideas and inspiration with others! You can set up your sewing equipment, leave at the end of each day and return to finish your project the following day. It is a retreat but you get to sleep in your own bed at night.  Your projects will be safely undisturbed until you return the next day.

    Bring your lunch for Saturday, and Sunday.  The fridge and kettle will be available to use.  Saturday we will order in pizza as usual, or you can supply your own dinner.  We will provide coffee, tea and snacks.

    Cost is $45 for the weekend.


    Spaces: min 4 / max 16
