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 Friday, July 7 and Saturday, July 8, 2023 at the Smiths Falls Memorial Community Centre!
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.
Members: Everything you need to know can be found here in the Members Only section.
CANCELLED-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. For 2023, our retreat will be held April 12-15 at the Silver Lake Weselyan Camp.
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.
Our 2022 Xmas Sale was held November 5, 2022. from 9 a.m. to noon.
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 4, 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.
