The First Two Weeks in February 2012.

February 9th, I took part in the Thunder Bay Quilters annual bee held at the Prince Arthur Hotel. It was a fun full day with good food and great learning experience. There were hourly draws and at the end of our day a wonderful door prize. To my great surprise, I won the door prize.

More than 60 quilters turned out Thursday for the Thunder Bay Quilters Guild annual bee. Participants formed teams to design, cut, sew and assemble comfort quilts to be given to local nursing homes, women’s shelters, St. Joseph’s Hospice, and the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre cancer and neonatal units. The quilters donate materials, time and skills to create comfort quilts each year. Ellen Lang uses her sewing machine to make the quarter-inch seam in the quilt squares. The guild also provides quilts and teddy bears for the annual Christmas Cheer drive. To join the guild or to register for courses, visit
