LFQG is pleased to present a trunk show and lecture by Michelle Dobrin a fiber artist from Windsor, ON. She has blended her love of nature and the warmth, colour, and texture of quilts to create her unique wallhangings. Some of her pieces can be found in shops and galleries in the area, such as the Marten Arts Gallery in Bayfield and the Gallery de Boer in Owen Sound.
Secret notion: A halloween treat, save it for yourself for break time! Happy Halloween! A ticket for the fat quarter draw will also be given for wearing your chalelaine and nametag!

CQA/ACC Quilt Ontario 2011 London, UWO Site Tour
On Monday, September 28, three members of the CQA/ACC Board of Directors met with the Local Organizing Committee of Quilt Ontario 2011 London to take a tour of UWO, the proposed site for this upcoming event. On behalf of the CQA/ACC were Johanna Alford, President, Vivian Kapusta, Publicity and Lynn Mills, Membership. They were quite enthusiastic about the site, it will definitely meet all their needs!
Later, the LFQG treated the CQA/ACC members to dinner. After dinner they attended a meeting of the LOC, where the LOC could ask questions and gather information on the inner workings of running a national quilt conference. Lots of information to process and lots of fun work ahead!
