The guild is open to anyone with an interest in quilts, whether a beginner, intermediate or advanced quilter, or as an enthusiastic onlooker. Membership dues are $45.00 per year or $9.00 per visitor.
Meeting Place and Time:
Orangeville Fairgrounds, on 5 Sideroad of Mono (Entry is at the main door.) On the third Monday of each month- September to June at 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm. Call Judi Sullivan 519-941-1202, for more information. Bring your project for Show and Tell and your own cup; refreshments are no longer provided.
The program committee of the Guild strives to present a variety of activities during the Guild Year. The speakers for the general meetings are chosen to represent different interests and techniques. And, each year we try to highlight the works of one of our guild members. At least one meeting a year emphasizes "hands on" block production. These blocks are then used to create quilt tops for community projects.
Upcoming Meetings 2018-19
Sept 17 - Marilyn Farquhar, Designs and Digitizing
Oct 15 - Christmas in October
Join us for Christmas in October. Local quilt shops will be present with fabrics and Christmas projects. I’m sure you appreciate the program people are working hard to make this happen on short notice. Under Cover Quilts, Cobwebs and Caviar, and Brampton Sew “N” Serge are confirmed at this writing. Hopefully 1 or 2 others will be added before the meeting. Tea, coffee and goodies will be available should you need a shopping break.
There will also be a presentation about the Quilts of Valour initiative that some members are involved in
Nov 19 - Robin Bogaert, Trunk Show
In November we have Robin Bogaert visiting from the Waterloo area. You can check out her work at https://www.quiltingintheloft.com/ to get an idea of what she’s all about. Robin has been quilting since 1999 and has a vast array of quilting work to share. She’s sure to inspire!
