Quilts in Bloom Show + Sock Club

This weekend Sew Sisters will be at the QUILTS IN BLOOM QUILT SHOW which is the Hamilton Quilter's Guild Show. The show runs Friday 10-8pm Saturday 10-5pm at Ancaster's Marritt Hall, 625 Garner Rd East Sunday 10-3pm.

There will be a great display of quilts, a member's boutique, a vendor's mall and a tea room for you to enjoy .... please drop by the booth and say hello!

Can't make it to Hamilton? Hilma will be in the shop all day to help you out! This afternoon sock club meets from 12:30 - 3:00 ... bring your knitting for an afternoon of stitching and socializing away from the heat! Sock club is an informal gathering of knitters and Hilma is there to answer any questions or help you along with your project. We haven't set a permanent time slot for Sock club but for the month of June we are knitting Friday afternoons.

I also wanted to draw your attention the Conkerr Cancer organization. This wonderful group
has a clear mission – To make life brighter for children with life changing illnesses and injuries. What they do – making bright cheery pillowcases for sick children – is not very fancy … but it is guaranteed to put a smile on the face of a sick child and to bring comfort to a frightened mom or dad.

If you choose to make pillowcases for the sick children you can drop them at the store and Toni Rodell from ConKerr Cancer Toronto will pick them up and distribute them. Here are some directions from their website : How-to-MakeA Pillowcase Directions

Judy, thanks for the information on the ConKerr Cancer organization - I've been looking for a project like that to take on ... my own boys are 17 & 19 and they love the pillowcases I make them (Sponge Bob, monkeys, footballs etc.) - I can't wait to get started making some pc's! My 19 year old is a Sick Kids graduate (for minor problems, but we did spend lots of time there!) so this will be my way of paying back :)

Could we make a day that we can make them all together in the store --- maybe the kids could get volunteer credit for it?
