October Meeting is a Road Trip!


October's meeting will be a little different -- instead of meeting on the 2nd Tuesday of the month, we will be taking a road trip!
On Saturday Oct 14, we will be visiting the Fashion History Museum in Cambridge.
We will meet up at the Museum at 11 am when it opens, and the self-directed tour of the galleries takes about an hour. Because we have a group booking, it is only $8/person.
Then we will be having lunch nearby at Ernie's Roadhouse ( and perhaps even making a stop at the nearbyish Len's Mills before heading home.
If you are interested in joining us for this outing, please email us at membershipsgg(gmail) or add your name to our Facebook post (if you haven't already signed up at our recent meeting). And if you are willing to be a driver, please note that as well so we can arrange transportation for everyone.
Looking forward to our first Guild group outing!

September launch of our New Season!


We look forward to the beginning of a new season, starting on Tuesday Sept 12, 7-9 pm! There are a couple of changes to be aware of this year:

  • Memberships have increased slightly to cover rising costs (see membership page for full details

  • We have a new location! We will be meeting at the River Gardens Retirement Residence, in the Community Room. This is inside and down the hall to the left. It is three steps up, but there is an elevator beside the room for anyone who needs it. There is a large parking lot on the corner of Romeo and Delamere, plus a couple of spots down near the entrance for anyone with mobility issues (please only use these if you need them). You will need to sign in and out at the front desk, due to Health & Safety regulations. Masks are currently optional in this location. 

  • Please try to wear a nametag at meetings this year! It will make it easier for everyone to get to know new people, as well as helping those of us with terrible memories ;) 

September's Meeting is a time to reconnect after our summer apart. We will be introducing some of the upcoming speakers and events as well as new additions to the Guild like outings and workshops. There will be sign ups available for some of those right at the meeting. 

Don't forget to bring your Relaxed Summer Style projects from our Summer POM Challenge for Sew & Tell! 

We'll also have a quick Sewing Pep Talk from our special virtual visitor, Deepika Prakash of, who we like to think of as an honourary member ;) Have any questions about PatternReview? Now's the time to ask them! 

Looking forward to seeing all of you again, and hoping to see some new faces too.
