All About Us

The Guild offers a supportive environment for the sharing of our quilting passion and the exchange of ideas, methods, education resources and activities.  This is done through speakers, demonstrations, workshops and lectures.  We have a robust lending library. We support the community through an outreach programme. Meetings for our 140 members are held on the second Thursday of the month from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the auditorium of the Bracebridge Memorial Arena and/or via Zoom.

Register for May 9, 2024 – Introduction to Hand Quilting

“Have you ever wanted to add hand quilting to your quilting skill
set? ” Terry will get you started, and provide you with techniques to
choose your tools and materials, transfer your designs, hide your
knots, and work towards even stitches. You may bring a project to
work on, or use our workshop materials and tools to try it out. You
may find it helpful to have your own scissors, needle threader,
and thimbles.
Bring your lunch and join us for the Guild Meeting at 1 pm.
