Our purpose is to promote an appreciation for quilting as a traditional craft and a contemporary art form; to provide educational opportunities by presenting general meetings, speakers, workshops and other activities related to quilt making; to preserve and perpetuate the tradition of quilt making in the County of Strathcona and to encourage an appreciation of this heritage.
Quilters love to give back to the community of Strathcona County! Our members have been making quilts, placemats, Christmas stockings, and so much more. We donate these items to local community charities through our planned charity drives, and many members also contribute their quilting efforts to other good causes.
Community is also closer to home. Our in-person meetings, retreats, UFO days, and our virtual sew days offer our members opportunities to grow friendships. We share ideas, offer encouragement, and learn from each other too.
Our monthly meetings and workshops offer members opportunities to learn about specific techniques and projects. Trunk shows are a great opportunity to learn about new tools and gadgets. Demos show how to master specific techniques or use specific tools.
Show & Tell is a great opportunity to share what we have learned and created. It is an important part of our monthly meetings, zoom sew days, UFO days and retreats.
We meet each month (except July and August) to share our ideas and creations.
Special interest groups meet regularly to focus on hand dying fabrics, using GO cutters, and doing handwork.
