Because the Etobicoke Quilters’ Guild (EQG) is a resident group at Neilson Park Creative Centre (NPCC), our Quiltmembers are required to be members of both NPCC and EQG. To join NPCC and EQG, simply complete the combined membership application, which is available online at the Neilson Park website (www.neilsonparkcreativecentre.com), or at the front desk of the centre.
The combined membership fee is $100 toward NPCC and $30 for EQG for a total of $130 per year. Membership provides full access to Studio C where you can work on your projects utilizing EQG supplies and equipment such as layout tables, cutting boards, rulers, rotary cutters, sewing machines – essentially all you require for your project – just bring your fabric and ideas and you can work in a supportive and helpful environment. Other membership benefits include access to a variety of skill development workshops and retreats, monthly meetings with guest speakers plus show and tell as well as a members’ library and access to special events. EQG offers may be available for full time high school, college or university students – ask a member of the EQG executive for details when you visit.
In addition to the Etobicoke Quilters Guild benefits, NPCC members enjoy discounts at many participating galleries and art supply stores. Please visit the NPCC website for additional information and benefits.
You may wish to join one of the other resident groups as well. Many EQG members are also Rugcrafters, Spinners and Weavers, Calligraphers, or Art Group members.
