Help needed on the weekend

I will be set up at The Antique Tractor show in Jarvis this weekend from Saturday till Monday. As well as selling quilts, knitted items etc I will be doing demos all weekend. If you are able to help me out please let me know. Thank you.

Will be at Juravinski Cancer Center tomorrow

I will be at Juavinski Cancer Centre tomorrow in the front lobby from 8-4. My volunteers have been working hard and have made some lovely items. Some of the items that are available for sale are, quilts, table runners, placemats, baby and children’s sweaters, lace scarves, dish clothes, afghans and so much more. Come on by and help us support cancer research.

Our newest sponsor

A few weeks ago at Quilt Canada I met the most amazing vendor, her name is Lesley and Lesley and her two daughters are the owners of JP’s Quilt Studio in Stoney Creek, Ontario. While chatting with Lesley at her adorable both full of the most adorable fabric I have seen I mentioned to her that the fabric I was purchasing from her was going into quilts that were being sold to raise money for cancer research. Immediately she wanted to help. Well on Monday I met up with Lesley on my way down to juravinski cancer center and she gave me three big bags of fabric.
All day at juravinski I kept thinking about those bags and couldn’t wait to get home to check them out. Well needles to say I started to cry as I opened the bags. I know quilters are very kind hearted but Lesley is the sweetest and most generous person I have ever met. Thank so very much for helping me raise money for cancer research. It is because of people like Lesley that I am able to continue to do what I do.
All you ladies out there in guilds I would highly recommend you invite JP’s Quilt Studio to your guild. She tells a heart warming story of her quilting journey starting with her grandmother and shows quilts that were made through the generations. She also brings along some gorgeous fabrics and her prices are great. Thanks again Lesley.

Another donation for research

While I was at Juravinski Cancer Centre on Monday I gave them $1,100.00 for cancer research. Thanks to all who purchased items from Pretty Life Quilts. Without you this would not be possible. I am going to figure out how much I have donated to them in total and post a running total on here.
