Workshops

January Extravaganza – FULL

January 25th promises to be a super fun day! We have 45 guild members signed up to participate! Everyone should’ve received an email in early December with your supply list and you were sent a recent email with photographs of a few versions of the free project we’ll demonstrate with those interested in making it. Remember that you are welcome to come and sew on any project you like – this is a social fun day for getting to know your fellow guild members. Please email krista.hennebury@shaw.ca if you haven’t received your supply list.

Date:  January 25, 2020
Time:  Doors open 9:30 am – pack up 3:30 pm

We have set-up volunteers in place. Please do not arrive early as it is difficult to set up such a large space with people moving about. We will open the doors for general entry at 9:30 am sharp.

Where:  St. Stephen’s Church, 1360 E 24th Ave. (off Mountain Highway), Lynn Valley. Plenty of free parking in the lot.
Please don’t forget your potluck contribution!


*NEW* Boarders, Bindings and Sleeves – a FREE Workshop

Krista Hennebury and Carol Piercy will be on hand for an informal demo-style workshop to help anyone who would like to finish their show quilts with fabulous, well fitted boarders, mitered bindings, and sleeves to avoid the “sausage effect” along the top of your quilt.

Please sign up at the Workshops table in January or email Workshops. If there are fewer than 8 people interested, we will not run this workshop.

Date: Tuesday, February 25, 2020
Time: 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm (stay and sew until 5:00 pm if you like)
Location: St. Andrew’s  & St. Stephen’s, 2641 Chesterfield Ave., North Vancouver (same room as our monthly guild meetings)
Cost: FREE


*NEW* Improv Alphabet with Felicity Ronaghan


Join Okanagan Modern Quilt Guild member Felicity Ronaghan (who comes to us from Naramata) to learn how to draft and sew your own wonky, improvisational alphabet (both upper and lower case letters) so you can say it with quilting! Text quilts have a long history in activism, politics, inspiration, expressions of love and commemorations of births, marriages and other milestones. Maximum class size 15, so sign up early. If after the March guild meeting the workshop is not full, remaining spaces will be opened up to non-members.

Date: Saturday, April 18, 2020
Time: 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Location: TBA in North Vancouver
Cost: $75 including class materials


If you have any questions about any of the workshops, please contact Workshops.

Note: due to lack of interest, there will be no sewing in the meeting room before this month’s meeting on January 28, 2020.
