"To further interest in quilting by inspiration and by learning through sharing, thus helping quilters to enjoy their media and improve their standards."
Our guild was formed in 1975. It was inspired by a group of women headed by Sandy Small, a renowned quilter and quilt teacher. Since that first meeting, the guild has grown to over 170 members and has inspired several sister guilds. For more information about us and our history see the link above.
All members are required to be members of the Neilson Park Creative Centre which provides us with unique facilities that are available during the week as well as for meetings. Membership for Neilson Park is $75.00/yr. and membership for Etobicoke Quilters' Guild is $25.00/yr.
Included in membership:
Members and visitors are welcome to come and work on their projects, get advice from other quilters, or just hang out. There is a supply cupboard where members may borrow tools and gadgets while in studio C. The library is open for members to borrow books and magazines. We are always in need of hand quilters to work around the quilting frame holding our raffle quilts.
Studio C Sundays in 2012 will be September 9, October 14, November 18 and December 9. In 2013 the dates will be January 13, February 10, March 10, April 14, May 12 and June 16. There is an access fee of $3.00 per member. Coffee, tea and cookies are free.
Also available to our members are a library, work space in Studio C and an opportunity to contribute to the Comfort Quilt program and our bi-annual quilt show, "Quilt Fever". See the links above for more information.
