A hand quilted bed cover had been donated to the guild and it was raffled, raising over 100$, which was donated to the community centre.  There were door prizes, delicious soups and yummy desserts enjoyed by all.

It was a truly rewarding day to see so many out sharing, renewing old friendships, making new ones and simply hooking together in one big group! Thanks to everyone who helped and participated.
