GANG Fabulous Fabric Frenzy

The Grandmothers of Alberta for a New Generation (GANG) are again busy preparing for our sixth annual Fabulous Fabric Frenzy. At this Frenzy, GANG will sell donated fabric, yarn and notions to the public for very low prices. All sale profits will go to the Stephen Lewis Foundation, Grandmother to Grandmother project.  This project helps support grandmothers in East Africa who are raising grandchildren who have been orphaned due to AIDS.

We gladly accept donations of fabric, yarn and sewing notions. We are not able to take books or patterns.

So, if you are down-sizing or just reducing your stash, please consider passing it on to our very worthy cause.

Commencing January 11, 2018, we will be accepting donated materials from 10:00 am to 2 pm on most Thursdays at Strathearn United Church, 8510 – 95 Ave., Edmonton. Please phone Ev at 780-434-0825 a few days prior to confirm that someone will be there.

If you are dropping off a donation, please use the alley door and ring the buzzer. Or, if your donation is only a few bags or boxes, I would be happy to receive it at the meetings in January, February and March.

Our sale this year will be on April 21, 2018 at Strathearn United Church.

We are anticipating a bigger than ever sale this year! Our inventory will include a wide range of fabrics that will appeal to home sewers, dressmakers, quilters, knitters and crafters. We look forward to seeing you at our Fabulous Fabric Frenzy. Please watch for our posters in the community and the ad in the Country Register in March for sale times.

New Private Retreat Facility

Hello Fellow Quilters,

My name is Keltie Masters and like yourself, I too love quilting, needlepoint and just about anything that allows my creativity to flow!  Because of this passion I would like to introduce you to a new venture that earlier this year, my husband Stan and I, decided to share with others. This being our beautiful TimberKings “Back to Nature Retreat” located in the serene foothills of the Canadian Rockies. We are situated on 5 acres of treed forest just south of Water Valley, which is just an hour northwest of Calgary, along Hwy #22, otherwise known as the Cowboy Trail. 


Being a quilter myself, a lot of detail and consideration was put into planning our luxury retreat, and therefore is the perfect place for a private retreat, whether it’s for quilting, crafting or just a girls’ getaway. Our facility accommodates up to 8 guests, and we require only a minimum of 5 guests for a retreat.  Due to our small size this allows us time to pamper you and meet your every need.  We also have massage, spa services and fun intuitive readings available as an add-on to enhance your experience while staying with us.   


We offer a “Tea & Tour” for anyone who would like to come and check out our facilities, as we would love to show you around.  


As wildlife photographers ourselves you will find yourself immersed in nature inside and out, and who knows you may even be greeted by some of our local wildlife! 


To set up a Tea & Tour, just give us a call and we would love to set a date with you … the tea will be steeping!

For more information, please feel free to check out our website: or our Facebook page:, or call us for more info J


Be sure to watch for us in the New Year editions of Country Register as we look forward to sharing with you the opportunity to “Relax, Refresh & Reconnect at Back to Nature.”


Warm Regards,

Keltie & Stan Masters
