Why Join Us

Whether a novice or advanced quilter, you are sure to find something to learn, to do, to explore and to take part in as a member of LCQG.

Monthly Meetings

The fourth Tuesday of the month, either in person or via ZOOM

Block of the Month

The Guild offers an exciting 10-month Block of the Month program that reflects the interests of the BOM Coordinator. Each month’s block is introduced at our meetings, then block instructions are emailed to registered members.

Guild Challenge

Join our yearly Guild Challenge, open to all members and designed to encourage creativity and friendly competition. Based on a different theme each year, this is always fun to do. Get a list of rules and jump in. The finished projects are on display at a Spring meeting and members vote for their favourite entry

Charity Outreach

Each year Guild members sew and donate a quilt to a local Lanark County charity to support that charity's own fundraising efforts. Interested in getting involved? The Outreach Coordinator would love to hear from you

Show & Tell

Be inspired as fellow members bring their current projects to the meetings to share

Program/Workshops

Each month the Guild offers outstanding Lectures, Presentations, Trunk Shows, and Workshops. Learn new skills and techniques from great Canadian and International instructors. Workshop fees are subsidized for members

Quilts on the Tay

Our quilt show showcases the work of Guild members and is held every 2 years in the summer. It features great vendors, a tea room and a boutique, where members have either donated items they made or sell their items on consignment

Newsletter

The Guild publishes a monthly newsletter, which is emailed to members and also posted to the website. If you have ideas for articles or announcements, contact the Newsletter Editor

Library

The Guild has a library of 400+ books and magazines as well as dozens of specialty tools and rulers. Browse and borrow at our meetings.

Shop of the Month

Local fabric stores "set up shop" at some Guild meetings. This is a great opportunity to purchase fabric, patterns and notions, often with a Guild member discount.

Social

Our Social Coordinator arranges with members, on a yearly rotation, the food and drinks for the break at our monthly in-person meetings, always well received! The team also appreciates help in set up and clean up.

Christmas Sale

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.
