Happy Thanksgiving to our American neighbours. I hope everyone enjoys the extra time with family and friends! We in the Great White North are bracing for another winter storm heading our way this weekend.
We have our trainer arriving from Tennessee this coming week to help us transition to our new system.
I certainly hope he doesn't freeze in the frigid temps we're expecting and inches of snow. Welcome to Alberta Roy! LOL
We were also thrilled to hear that Guiding Mosaic 2016 will be held right here at Camp Woods, Sylvan Lake, Alberta, home of E-Patches & Crests. This is the 13th Girl Guides of Canada national camp to be held since 1927 and will celebrate Guiding and the tradition of camping!
We've had a very productive month with 20 new items added to our inventory. There are 3 additional Spark Circle badges as well as adding "Latex" to our Allergy set plus a bit of summer, fall and winter thrown in. And of course there are 4 new owls and those suggestions keep coming in. They sure are a popular set of crests!!
Our newest Challenge Kit Human Locomotor System is a multi page PDF filled with information, crafts, recipes and activities regarding the muscles and bones of the human body. Complete the challenges and earn the crest. We would love to receive your feedback on this new kit!
We've also updated the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Year Guide crests since the uniform was updated this fall.
