Welcome to the OVGS
It's almost here. We have less than 30 days to go now as we prepare to host the annual embroiderer's frenzy known as Seminar. This year destination Mecca for all of the needle toting pilgrims is Algonquin College. The dates are May 13th-18th.
If you are not one of the members who are attending classes please consider donating some of your time that week to volunteer at Seminar. We need many bodies to help out with Seminar Central and satff the Members' Exhibit both of which run throughout the entire Seminar. We also need help to set up on the Tuesday afternoon or take down on Sunday afternoon.This is an excellent way for anyone to come and share in the excitement of Seminar without having to pay the class fees.
Jump in and have a blast at the same time.

This past May the winner of our Marian Parry Scolarship Award attended the 40th Anniversary Seminar celebration in Winnipeg. This is her account of her time spent at Seminar.
|The doors will open. Members are welcome to join in setting up.|
|Social time / Library This longer period gives members a chance to visit the library, sign up for programs, or just circulate and socialize.|
|The library will close for the evening and a brief business meeting will be held.|
|Immediately upon conclusion of the business meeting, approximately 15 minutes, the programme portion of the meeting will commence.|
|As the Guild has the premises until 10:00 pm, members are free to stay till then if they choose.|
