September 22, 2018 UFO Day

Our guild had our monthly UFO day today held at the Watson Arts Centre Old Fire Hall.   Some members worked on their own projects but many were helping with some guild quilts.  We have an upcoming donation that requires 26 large lap quilts.  We are well on the way already having about 3/4 of the quilts completed.

For the month of October the WAC has many of our guild members quilts adorning the walls of the gallery, green room and the fire hall. If you are in Dauphin stop by and take a look. WAC hours are noon to 5pm Monday to Friday.
