As this is my last newsletter I would like to thank you for your support over the last 3 years as it has been a wonderful opportunity to get to know you as you signed in each month. Thank you!!

It’s time to think about renewing your membership for 2017 / 2018.   The dues for this year are $60.00. Your current membership is good until February 28, 2017 but membership renewals will be accepted at the January and February meetings. Membership cards will be available at the March meeting.

A membership renewal form is on our Guild website.   Just go along the headings at the top of the page and click on the ‘Members’ heading.   Then go down to ‘join or renew’. 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 $60.00 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.

As of December 31, 2016 the guild had 125 members. In January we had 57 members renew their memberships. We had 71 members present at the January guild meeting where we also welcomed 4 guests. The door prizes were won by Laurel Hickey and Dianne Ritter.

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

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

Happy Stitching!
