Welcome Quilters and “Sewists”

We’re a busy, active bunch of quilters, sewists and makers, and our Guild normally offers workshops, COPS (sewing) days and a whole heap of lovely member benefits! During the COVID-19 restrictions, however, our offerings are restricted or modified to online only. Be sure to come back to our website and check our calendar on the sidebar for all event details and dates.

Programme: Exploring Shape as a Design Element with Lorna Shapiro

In the past, Lorna tended to stay within a comfortable zone of familiar shapes as she developed new quilt designs. Although shape is only one of the elements of design that we get to work with as quilters, it can be a powerful aid in creating new designs. Starting with shape as a jumping-off point, Lorna has arrived at designs that she would not have found otherwise. In this one-hour lecture, we look at quilts as we isolate the element of “shape” and see how we can use it as inspiration for new design ideas.

January Extravaganza – POSTPONED

We’ve decided to postpone the January Extravaganza until the spring. By then most of the community will have had 2 COVID vaccine doses and older adults a booster, thus providing a safer environment for guild gatherings.

Quilt Show – Rescheduled to 2023

The Quilt Show Committee has decided to move the show to June 2023 and to hold it in the odd years thereafter. Mark the first two weekends of June 2023 in your calendars to be sure you’re around to help showcase our guild’s amazing talents. Read all the details on the Quilt Show page.

Volunteer Opportunity: Set Up & Take Down Coordinator

This is a “must fill” coordinator position. Without this essential role filled, we won’t be able to host the show. 

We hope the person who volunteers for this role is physically able to be a part of the set up and take down – able to climb a ladder, lift quilts overhead during hanging, etc. While this may seem like a lot of work, we can assure you there are other volunteers to assist. We typically enlist family members and friends who are physically able to help with this vital task.

If this is something that intrigues or interests you, please contact Colleen Bell, Quilt Show Coordinator
