Our Quilted Treasures
Guild shows their best works October 18-19
Submitted by Joyce Clough. Chilliwack Quilters Guild
A previous Chilliwack Quilters Guild show.
e have a biannual quilt show to raise funds to purchase batting and fabric to make quilts for donation to various charity and community groups such as: Chilliwack Hospice, Victims Assistance, Ann Davis, Stolo Nations, Seabird Island.
This event is a fundraiser for the guild, and a portion of the funds also go to provide the materials to make the ‘We Care’ and ‘Hospice’ quilts which are then donated to local charitable organizations.
There will be much to see at the show, including a display of quilts handmade by guild members, a quilt raffle, demonstrations, and a merchants’ mall. There will also be a tea room and a white elephant table selling gently used merchandise.
In addition, guild members can take part in a challenge; the full details of which are yet to be announced. The quilt being raffled off was designed and also created by the group’s members. The merchant’s mall will no doubt be offering quilts for sale as well as items such as fabric, threads, frames, and other quilting-related products.
The show will be an excellent opportunity for those interested in making their own quilts to learn from experts and to witness the creativity and talent involved in producing works of art which double up as useful items.
The show will take place at the Chilliwack Alliance Church from October 18-19. Admission is $5. For more information, contact Joyce Clough at 604-794-7869.
