Victoria Quilters' Guild
The Victoria Quilters' Guild donates about 400 quilts per year to the neo-natal unit of Victoria General Hospital. Quilts are made by guild members from kits made up by the volunteer committee. Our special project is Comfort Quilts for babies. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about Community Comfort Quilts and fabric donations (100% cotton). Our members also donate quilts to other charitable programs of their choice; among the recipients were the Cridge Centre for the Family, Quilts of Valour, Threshold Housing Society, Canada Comforts, Pandora Youth Apartments, Anney’s Closet, Victoria Women’s Transition House, Mito Quilts of Hope, and Ronald McDonald House of Vancouver.
We have an Annual Christmas Sale in November which supports the purchase of materials to make these quilts.
Membership fees are $45.00 per year (2018)
Victoria Quilters' Guild members, here on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, vary from traditional hand quilters to fabric artists. Our mandate is to promote and encourage interest in the art of quilting through dissemination of related information and to work together in harmony with mutual respect.
Monthly meetings include a presentation by world class quilters - from trunk shows & slide shows to singing quilters. Works shown are as varying as the quilters - demonstrating hand stitches, appliqué, piecing, Fibre Arts as well as long arm and machine quilting.
As well, we have workshops given by local artists as well as world class quilt instructors/artists.
