The Haliburton Highlands Quilt Guild held a craft sale at Stanhope Community Centre Oct. 15, with more than a dozen members selling items such as hand-knitted blankets, doll’s clothing, hats and mittens.
The event was the group’s first in over two years. “It’s a fundraiser to cover our monthly costs,” said Pat Stiver, a member since 2006.
“This is such a great club, we’re like a family. We still have around 50 active members, and we’ll get together once a month to see what one another is working on and offer assistance and encouragement to people working on a specific project.”
The guild meets every second Wednesday of the month at the Stanhope Community Centre, from 1 to 3 p.m. The hall is open as of 9:30 a.m. for members and guests to come and sew. The annual membership fee is $25, while guests are charged $10 per visit. To learn more, contact president Karen Shirley at 705-489-2705.
