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.
The first workshop of the 2023-2024 season was a success thanks to our very own TVQG member Yvette Chilcott!
Beginning Quilt-Making was attended by 10 participants who spent the day learning and relearning the basics of quilting including rotary cutting, sewing the perfect 1/4” seam, pressing, 9 patch block, Shoo Fly block and more.
There was a raffle basket won by Judy Bellehumeur and there were lovely door prizes.
We all had a chance to work on a quilt top, so we look forward to some show and share at upcoming meetings.
