20 lucky ladies enjoyed this winter's retreat January 12-15 at Providence Point Retreat and Conference Centre near Lanark.
Tips, quilting help and ideas were all freely shared with new and old friends. The 5 "newbies" fit right in and enjoyed the weekend of time to just quilt to their heart's content; some started very early in the morning and others sewed late into the night. Breaks from quilting included fabric shopping, neck and shoulder massages and everyone loved the delicious food. A happy group of ladies headed home with many projects completed and new friendships made.

Our talented and generous guild members again provided holiday placemats for the Arnprior and Renfrew Meals on Wheels programs for delivery at Christmas. These placemats have Christmas themed fabric on one side and another fabric on the other so they can be used throughout the year.
Our guild vice president, Chris Gordon (center) is pictured with Mary Bourk, co-ordinator of the social and volunteer programs for the Arnprior-Braeside-McNab Seniors at Home program, and Dennis Harrington, executive director, with a selection of the placemats that were presented to them in December.
