The Fraser Valley Quilters’ Guild is a non-profit Society. The purpose of the Guild is to bring the joy of quilting to the public by way of shows, displays, and demonstrations, and to bring ideas and learning experiences to the members by way of workshops, guest speakers, and demonstrations.
Guests are always welcome with a free drop-in for the first meeting. There will be a fee of $10.00 for non-members for special guest speakers to help cover costs.
Guild meetings are held the second Tuesday of the month from September through June at 10 AM and 7 PM at:
Trinity Lutheran Church
11040 River Road
I am thankful for the sacrifices of others that enable me to enjoy the life I have today.
Please remember those that have either lost their lives or now have compromised lives due to injuries sustained defending our freedoms.
Do you have some poppy/canadiana fabric, perhaps you could make a quilt and donate it to a Legion near you. If you are so inclined contact a branch near you and ask what is appropriate.
Lest We Forget
Our day meeting in November we are featuring “Orange you Glad” our first colour themed month. Bring your ‘orange” quilts but wait for instructions to show them in a separate Show and Tell. Bring an “orange snack” such as cheezies, pumpkin loaf, papaya, carrot cake.. you get the drift. it will be nothing but orange everywhere!!! “Orange you Glad”.
The in between will feature a pattern called disappearing L patch. An email will be forthcoming with all the pertinent info.
Stay tuned and see you on November 14.
Cher has submitted 3 of her famous award winning quilts to the interactive display at the Port Moody Gallery. This show is geared to young and old alike.
As the weather turns cold and wet, what better way to spend a couple of hours but in an art gallery, then indulge in a nice lunch afterward. The show runs until October 25,2024.
