Program September to December 2018

Summer is drawing to an end and it is time to start thinking about quilting again. I know most of us never really put away our fabric, our sewing machines are never turned off for long and we never look at new patterns or techniques over the summer. Yeah, right! We just dial everything back a little bit.

Our fall and early winter Programs will hopefully get your creative juices flowing.

September 17th: We have two presenters in September. Our own Chrisanne Kotzian has been diligently taking pictures of Comfort Quilt gatherings and has promised a light hearted look at what goes into making the Guild’s Comfort Quilts.

Our main presenter is Kismet Quilts. Not only are they our merchant, they will be taking the stage to tells about new quilt ideas from their Port Alberni store and their wonderful quilters.

October 15th: Sandra Sandvik from Mayne Island will be following up her Botanical Beauty Workshop with a Program about the history of Canadian quilting, zero waste quilting and adding upcycling items to your quilts.

November 19th: The Nanaimo Modern Quilt Guild is coming for a visit. This Program will include both a presentation and hands-on work. By the time you leave our meeting you too will be a Modern Quilter, or at least have a better understanding of what defines a modern quilt.

December 10th: Hang on to your hats, quilt designer Shania Sunga and Comtemporary Sewing Materials owner Kevin Willams are coming for a truck show. They will be showing off some of Shania’s work as well as some of her new patterns. They are also our December merchants. So, you will be able purchase those last minute quilt goodies for Santa to leave you under the tree.
