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 wool workshop was presented by Hattie VanDyk & Judy Gray. There was an excellent attendance for this workshop and we all enjoyed exercising our hand sewing skills for a change! Kits were available for those that wished to purchase & was a good option for those new to woolly dodads as some have christened them. We could see how this technique would work very well to be incorporated into a quilt.
