Hello!

This summer, the Edmonton Association of the Deaf will be hosting the first Canada Deaf 55+ Games from August 13-17. This event will bring together many participants from all over Canada. The games will run throughout the week, and on the evening of the 17th there will be a gala and silent auction.

We are currently seeking donations for our silent auction and door prizes. This is a wonderful opportunity to support your local Deaf community. Your donation will help raise money to promote social, educational, recreational, physical and moral betterment for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing.

Thank you for your consideration,

Edmonton Association of the Deaf

 


 

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: www.backtonatureretreat.com or our Facebook page: www.facebook.com/backtonatureretreat, 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

Canadian Sesquicentennial Celebration by Northcott

This program has three components all of which are based on their new fabric line of the same name for the 150th year.  

Transcanada Block Party:  From January to September 2017, participating shops will provide a free pattern (or have kits for sale) for a block to customers who visit their store.  Much like the Row by Row Experience program many of you are familiar with, this is not available on-line or by mail.  Kits from participating stores must consist of only the Canadian Sesquicentennial Celebration fabrics and the blocks can range from 6” x 6” to 18” x 18”, in 6” increments.  We are thrilled to be part of this block shop-hop program which is throughout Canada, with 27 stores signed up in Alberta alone!  Northcott created a google map where you can see the participating stores and their locations.   

Canada Quilt Challenge:  Make a quilt using at least 6 blocks from 6 different participating Transcanada Block Party stores with the Canadian Sesquicentennial Collection and enter to win either the grand prize of $500 or one of the 13 finalist prizes of $250 each.  Details on this contest are here.

Sesquicentennial Quilts of Valour Challenge:  Donate a quilt made from the Canadian Sesquicentennial Celebration fabric line for Quilts of Valour.  All quilts are submitted direct to Northcott, from which the top 15 will be displayed at Quilt Canada in Toronto in June.  Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 viewer’s choices.  Details on this contest are here.
