From Quilt Retreats, Fundraising Sales, Sew Days, Guild Gatherings and our BiAnnual Quilt Show, there is something for everyone!
Quilts on the Tay
Our 2023 quilt show was a great success. Held Friday, July 7 and Saturday, July 8, 2023 at the Smiths Falls Memorial Community Centre we had more than 300 quilts on display, 17 vendors, a packed Member Boutique with items for a sale and a busy lunch room.
Thank you to everyone who attended, and all member who helped make the show what it was!
Planning begins shortly for our 2025 QOTT!
Quilting is a social hobby; the Lanark County Quilters Guild recognizes the importance of being able to gather with friends to sew, chat and share. During COVID we met online via ZOOM and we will continue Virtual Sew Days on the 1st Tuesday of the month, starting Oct 3, 1 to 4p.m. Read more here
COVID forced many guilds, including the LCQG to pivot to online meetings. But we also knew members were missing being together. So we launched "Guild Gatherings". These are one-stop get togethers hosted by the Social Committee, Membership, Program and Library. Depending on the health protocols, we met outside, with hot chocolate to keep us warm!
"QT" or Quilt Time!
Our yearly "QT" is a fun-filled December gathering where fellow Guild members enjoy chatting while handcrafting, such as knitting, embroidery, hand sewing, knitting, applique, needlepoint and quilts to finish—all over a wonderfully catered lunch. And let's not forget the games! Get to know a guild member you have never spoken with before.
Wrapping up the year is a wonderful potluck dinner held in June, our final meeting of the year.
