HAPPY NEW YEAR!! It is time to think about renewing your membership for 2016/2017. The dues for this year are $75.00 which includes the $20.00 fee for Quilt Show tickets that you will receive at a later date to be determined by the Quilt Show Committee.

A membership renewal form is on our Guild website. Just click on ‘Membership Form’ under the ‘Member Resources’ heading. This is a PDF file which will allow you to type in your information, print it off, sign it and then drop it off at the membership table with cash or a cheque for $75.00 made out to ‘Lions Gate Quilters Guild’ or ‘LGQG’. This form cannot be saved but can be printed off so you can hand write on it also. Please help us save paper by printing off your own form.

If you are planning to hang a quilt in the show in June, you must already be a member as of December 2015. In addition, you must also be a member in good standing and have renewed your membership by March 31, 2016.

Your current membership is good until February 29, 2016 but membership renewals will be accepted at the January and February meetings.

The guild currently has 138 members. We had 88 members present at the November meeting where we welcomed 1guest and 1new member to our guild meeting.

Remember to wear your name tags if you would like to win a door prize. Everyone who signs in, has an opportunity to win. Nametags are available for $1.00 each at the membership table.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us at

Happy Quilting!
