From Quilt Retreats, Fundraising Sales, Sew Days, Guild Gatherings and our BiAnnual Quilt Show, there is something for everyone!
Quilts on the Tay
We are very excited to announce our next quilt show will be July 7 to 9, 2023!
Usually held every 2 years, our show showcases the work of Guild members, features great vendors, a tea room and a boutique, where members have either donated items they made or sell their items on consignment.
Stay tuned for more information.
Guild Spring Retreat
A yearly event held in the spring, Guild members gather for 2.5 days of dedicated sewing, away from distractions and chores. The McIntosh Country Inn in Morrisburg has proven to be a very successful host.
A Guild fundraiser selling items made and donated by Guild members. It is usually held in November of the opposite year to the Guild quilt show. Members can also sell their items on consignment. Join us for a great day of shopping, and homemade lunch and desserts.
NEW DATE: Our 2022 Xmas Sale is November 5, 2022.
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 the first Tuesday of every month. When we are back to in-person meetings, our Sew Days will transition to the mornings of our Guild monthly meetings.
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.
