We have moved: Our Sew Alongs, hosted by Elaine, Rose and Dawn, are now held in the classroom at Along Came Quilting, 6432 1A St SW. This is the third month in the new location. We are so appreciative of the hospitality and the great space!

Sew Day in September will work on finishing up fidget quilts for the October sale as well as creating  more letter and number sets for the children’s section.  This is a great opportunity for non sewers to come and help cut out letters and numbers with pinking shears. We hope to create five more sets for the sale. Bring your pinking shears and a friend.

Be sure to register so that we can send you the information about what supplies to bring.

If you have an idea for a project for a Sew Day please send a note to and we will get back to you. We are always looking for project ideas and the creative people willing to share those ideas.

WHAT: SEW ALONG with Elaine, Rose and Dawn
WHEN: Wednesday, September 26 from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM
WHERE: Along Came Quilting, 6432 1A St SW (right behind the Home Depot on the east side of MacLeod Trail S, just north of Glenmore Trail).



It’s that time of year again! We’ve been offered the opportunity to distribute robes at the SAIT Fall Convocation for an honorarium. It’s a very worthwhile event. Last year our Fall honorarium was $750.
This year the date is October 11 with one shift of about 5 hours, requiring ten volunteers. There is a break between handing out the robes and collecting them at the end of the event.

This is a great opportunity to both raise funds and to socialize and meet other UJAMAA GRANDMAS.

* Busy times will be near the beginning and end of the shift while robes are being distributed and collected.
* During the 2+ hour ceremonies, volunteers should be able to leave for a coffee or a meal on campus or nearby.
* Expect lots of walking and some light lifting.
* Wear neat casual clothing and comfortable walking shoes.
* Bring reading glasses if you require them as each gown is labelled for a particular graduate.

If you are driving to the site, the best parking is at the Jubilee Auditorium. The price is $10+. Keep your stub and you will be reimbursed. The LRT passes right next to the “Campus Centre” building and you can directly enter it from the station. Since classes are in session, the LRT is your best bet to get to the site.

WHAT: SAIT Fall 2018 Convocation Fundraiser
WHEN: Thursday, October 11
WHERE: SAIT, 1301 16 Ave NW , Symposium Room, V202, Campus Centre
