Social Sewing

For quilters who yearn for a bit of social sewing, our International Quilting Day celebration will include numerous breakout rooms for exactly that purpose.

Presentations, Demonstrations and Workshops

Are you looking to learn a new skill or polish a technique? We have 17 talented members from both guilds who will be sharing some of their favourite projects and techniques in 13 different sessions. Make yourself a cuppa and have a look at the schedule of sessions.
