Workshop, Lecture. Retreat & Tour Opportunities

February 24, 2018 in Mannheim, ON

Audrey Vrooman will teach Invisible Appliqué. At the November meetings the fine workmanship inspired many to sign up three months before the class! The colourful sample with flowers and a bird had fine quilting as well as embellishments. Even those who usually don’t enjoy appliqué were inspired to sign up. A few spots are still available. The workshop is $35. There is a $20 supply fee to be paid directly to the instructor.

Diane Carson's bus trip and tour to Lancaster and the AQS Show.

Angela will share her expertise with mixed media and fabric  and will teach us how to use paint sticks, transfer foil, ink sticks, paints, fusible web, laces, etc. Bring fabric about the size of a fat quarter in cotton, silk or lace and have fun. The workshop is $35 and there is a $10 supply fee.

Make it Big, Make it small

We are excited to be offering our second one foot square quilt challenge and show, to be exhibited at the St.Marys Museum in May and June of this year.


We would be delighted if some of you may be inspired by the theme, and enter a quilt for "Make it Big, Make it small", which could be a big idea, interpreted in a small quilt, or any other interpretation.


This year we have also been invited to be part of the Quilts at the Creek outdoor show in Toronto at the end of July, and also QuiltX in St Marys in September.


Here is the brochure. It is also available as a download from our website is
