The aims and objectives for workshops are to stimulate an appreciation of the art of quilting; to encourage fellowship; and to share, learn, teach and promote old and new ideas, techniques, designs as well as information regarding quilting. They also encourage participation in our Comfort Quilts and Preemie charitable endeavours. Our committee aims to reach all levels of quilters, from beginner to advanced, and to make the workshops affordable to all members of the guild.


This class will take place via Zoom. Cost is $20.

First Steps in Quilt-Making

A Hands-on Class by Yvette Chilcott

We’ll make this 2-block 42” x 54” quilt top together, from the very beginning.  Here’s a general idea of what I’ll teach:
•The basics – Fabric, Thread, Needles
•Rotary cutting, safely and accurately
•Organizing and labelling your pieces
•How to sew a perfect ¼” seam
•How to press your seams
•How to use “strip piecing” to make 9-patch blocks
•How to make the half-square triangles for the Monkey Wrench blocks.
•How to measure for the borders
•How to attach the borders.

The quilt is made with 3 fabrics, a light, a medium and a dark.  

A supply list will be sent out upon registration.
