Royal City Quilters Guild holds regular meetings on the second Tuesday of the month from September through June. For now, all guild meetings and events are held online via Zoom.
Presentation: Valuing Your Work
Dawn is a new member of the RCQG, and we’re so happy she was able to step-in for the March programme. She is a quilt appraiser, teacher, and judge.
Programme description: All types of quilts have value; whether they are old, new, works of art, blocks of the month, family heirlooms, or flea-market finds. Along with the sentimental value associated with these textiles, there is often also considerable monetary value. Dawn will explain waht factors impact the value of quilts, why people shoudl have quilts appraised, and what’s involved in appraisal. If you are planning to sell, buy, bequeath, donate, raffle, exhibit, or give a quilt as a gift – this is valuable information.
Participants of different skills and backgrounds are experimenting with different techniques in the creation of small quilts that are generated to depict a particular theme word. Show & tell format explains the process, the outcome and any struggles encountered along the way. Social and supportive environment.

Most participants are recreating 4.5″ blocks designed by Jane A. Stickle for her Baltimore Album-style quilt. The reference book for patterns was written by Brenda Manges Papdakis and individuals are selecting patterns to hand-sew each month, many of which are applique. Some members are working on other hand sewing projects.
Individuals who share the desire and the intent to explore the Modern Quilting movement – specifically, what makes a quilt ‘modern.’ Adaptive techniques, improvisation, negative space, bold graphics, etc. are being studied through group challenges and quilt designs. Contact Katrina Baklarz for more information.
Members wishing to explore various media – fibre, paints, thread, embellishments, natural elements are invited to join in a mutual exploration of unusual techniques and creative expression. Curiosity is a must.
This group meets via Zoom. Contact Monica Bell for details.
