AGM JUNE 7, 2020

This year, we will miss the in-person greetings, hugs, and camaraderie that we look forward to at our Annual General Meetings (AGM). Due to the Covid 19 virus social distancing requirements still in place, our AGM will be held as a video conference using ZOOM technology.

We ask our Members to pre-register. The ZOOM app allows a maximum of 100 participants – so, it’s first come, first serve!

How does it work? Each pre-registered Ujamaa Member will receive an email on Saturday, June 6 with detailed instructions of how to join the meeting (using their computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone), including the password and link to the AGM video conference.

Registration DEADLINE – MIDNIGHT, FRIDAY, JUNE 5, 2020

WHEN: Sunday, June 7, 2020 at 1:30 PM (Mountain Time)
HOW: Video conference via ZOOM

SEW DAY is a members event held the third Wednesday of most months at Along Came Quilting, 6432 1A Street SW, Calgary (This is right behind the Home Depot on the east side of MacLeod Trail South, just north of Glenmore Trail.) Each SEW DAY we spend time getting to know one another, sharing ideas and working on simple projects for BB&B.  Kits are usually available and some participants bring their own Ujamaa projects to share and/or complete. Participants bring their own lunch and drink, a sewing machine in good working order and “regular” sewing supplies.

SEW DAY is facilitated by Dawn Bolger, Elaine Peek and/or Rose Besler and, on occasion, other members volunteer to take the lead.  This ensures we have lots of variety and this is a great way to share what you know.  If you have a project that you want to share and demonstrate at a SEW DAY, please send an email to with a description of the project and the date you are available to do a demo. Send any questions to the same email.

Details for this month’s SEW DAY are in the E-news and the linked sign up form. Space limits us to 14 participants and once the day is full, a stand by list will be created in the event of cancellations. See you there.
