Kawartha Quiltmakers' Guild Meetings
After discussions with the Church, there will be no more Kawartha Quiltmakers' Guild meetings in 2020.  As a result of a "virtual" Executive Committee meeting, please be advised that a decision was made to not charge membership fees for September to, and including, December.  There are no guarantees that we will be resuming in January but this will be revisited later this year when we receive more information from the Church.

It is sad that we won't be getting together; however, there are plans to continue with the Newsletter which you will continue to receive on a monthly basis.  Be on the lookout for them starting in September and you might find a few surprises.

SHARE YOUR IDEAS, SHOW AND TELL, ON KQG FACEBOOK
The page is private and only the Kawartha Quiltmakers' Guild members are invited to join.  If you are interested in sharing your work or topics of interest to our group through Facebook please join us at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/927962140649057/

The following is an excerpt from this  link .

"PRHC calls on community for support with 1000 Mask Challenge
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, Peterborough Regional Health Centre (PRHC) is asking our community for their continued support. We are grateful for the generous donations of personal protective equipment (PPE) we have received for our healthcare workers, however there continues to be a worldwide shortage of PPE.

If you know how to sew, we're asking you to make masks for donation. We're asking for 1000 masks a week. These masks will not be given to our healthcare workers, who will continue to use certified PPE. Handmade masks will be provided to:

Drop off is available at the hospital (see above link), and From the Heart Quilt Shop in Bethany  "will have a covered basket at our side door of the shop beginning Monday, April 6th" for mask donations.
PRHC is "promoting a simple pleated mask design. Along with standard sewing supplies (sewing machine, measuring tape, etc.), you will need:
