Looming Deadlines

shoppers at Elegant Threads past

The dates for our annual guild sale., Elegant  Threads, are November 24 and 25 which means the deadline for finishing projects is highly visible on the calendar.  It glares out from the page and says “you should have started sooner” or ” you shouldn’t have made it so complicated”.

The sale committee has been meeting for quite some time.  They seem immune to the deadline terrors.

 The sale has grown steadily.  We have seen an increase in members and in member activity.  Skilled artisans have joined the group and brought with them expertise in many aspects of fibre arts.  As a result there has been an increase in the variety and quality of items in the guild show.  The sale committee is planning some display changes to help shoppers located the items and information they are looking for.  They are also looking to improve the check out process including a reader for credit cards so if you see something you must have and don’t have the cash you won’t have to pass it by.

There will be a silent auction at the sale so if you like a bargain and a little competition this could be for you.  All of the items in the auction have been donated and the proceeds will go to the guild.

Also look for the door prize draw.  You might be the lucky one to take it home.

In addition to getting ready for the sale we have been doing some fund raising with sales and raffles. We’d like to thank Deez Restaurant in Qualicum Beach for hosting the raffle and Quality Foods for providing supplies.

We hope to see you at Rotary House in Qualicum Beach next weekend, (24th and 25th of November).  Rotary House is located at the corner of Beach and Fern and is a short walk from the Qualicum Civic Centre where the Winterfest Craft Fair will be taking place.  Winterfest is a local event that features a wide variety of quality items and a relaxed atmosphere.

Other events in Qualicum Beach that weekend include a tea at The Old School House Gallery and The Quilters’ Sale at St. Stephens church.

See “links of interest” on the right side of the blog to find a map to Rotary House and information on Winterfest.
