Mulhurst Bay Quilt Club held Ladies Day on October 20 in the Mulhurst Community Hall. This was the 20th anniversary of Ladies Day and was once again a sold out event.

The 250+ attendees were entertained by keynote speaker, comedian, and ventriloquist, Bob Layton of CHED radio. Add to that an update on Fashion Trends and comedic tales from Tillie the Tourist it was a full and fun filled day.

More than 45 sponsors donated door prizes, the total value of which exceeded $2,500. The walls of the hall were lined with quilts, wall hangings and runners made by our members, and we offered a market where the ladies could purchase our home made items.

Ladies Day is the annual fundraiser for the Mulhurst Bay Quilt Club. This year we were also fortunate to receive a grant to help offset costs from the County of Wetaskiwin FCSS program. Proceeds from this even go towards the purchase of fabric and notions to support our “Comfort Quilt” program.

Over the past year more than 30 comfort quilts were hand delivered to people throughout the community who suffered a serious or terminal illness; to those who lost loved ones; or to victims of tragedies such as the Fort McMurray flood.

The Mulhurst Bay Quilt Club are associated with the Mulhurst Community League, who give us tremendous support, including space to get together and quilt on a weekly basis. We meet on Wednesday and welcome newcomers you don’t have to be an experienced quilter come and learn along with us.
