Please join us for an informal information session led by Freda, a member of the Leduc, Alberta Team of Days for Girls. This worthy organization provides necessary feminine hygiene supplies for girls in under developed countries who must otherwise stay at home and miss school during their regular monthly cycle.

There are more than 70 teams across Canada and 800 teams worldwide who provide access to quality, sustainable feminine hygiene kits, vital health knowledge and income generation opportunities where possible.  If you would like more information about this organization, or to become a local team member, please join us!

Community Donation

Hello Patti,

My name is Christina and I am the Occupational Therapy student from the U of A who requested quilting materials for a project with the residents of the Women’s Emergency Accommodation Centre  (WEAC). We have been working as a community to complete this quilt which represents coming together for healing from loss and grief.

Thank you so much for the materials you provided! They will continue to be used at WEAC to add to this project. My placement is complete but the work will continue.

I have attached a photo of the project as it is today.

Thank you again for your generosity, and your support of the women of WEAC.

Rainbow Scrap Challenge Reveal Evening

Thank you to everyone who participated in our 2016 RSC Quilt-A-Long. We thoroughly enjoyed our “big reveal” party, held April 21. We had a beautiful display of 16 quilts, each one unique and full of colour! We served refreshments and homemade chocolate chip and ginger cookies, while welcoming our RSC participants and special guests from the Days For Girls organization.

The $5.00 penalty collected throughout the year amounted to a total of $625, and donated to Days for Girls. To learn more about this organization, please visit www.info@daysforgirls.org.

Our door prize winners were Karen Osatchuk for the completed quilt top (flimsy) and Del Caskey for the completed quilt.

Congratulations to all our participants! Thank you for taking part in this Rainbow Scrap Challenge Quilt-A-Long! Plans are underway for our next Quilt-A-Long.

Congratulations Britta!

Our colleague Britta won the viewers choice award at Fight Song 11 for her rainbow hexagon quilt. Many days, weeks, months (about 12) went into this project. If you are curious, yes, all those hexies are hand sewn together.
