Edyta Sitar Alaska Quiltalong 2023-2024

In 2023, Royal City Quilters’ Guild joined with York Heritage Quilters Guild and Waterloo County Quilters Guild for a quiltalong to work on Tula Pink’s Butterfly Quilt 2.0. Participants  enjoyed working together on the project and made plans for another quiltalong for the 2023-2024 guild year. The project we have selected is Edyta Sitar’s Alaska quilt.  Please join us if you’d like to participate.

Virtual Tuesdays (aka Scraps and Scrappy)

Thanks to everyone who responded to our Survey about Virtual Tuesdays. There is enough interest to warrant continuing to meet via Zoom on second Tuesdays of the month to discuss scrap quilting and other topics of interest, sharing our work and knowledge with one another. The meeting will run from 7:00 – 9:00 PM. All Guild members will receive email reminders of Virtual Tuesday meeting times and Zoom links each month and everyone is welcome to attend at any time.

Both locations can be used for sandwiching your own quilts, so you can book a time to come to do this at either location. It’s great to have help with sandwiching!

We are also pleased to continue our virtual Zoom Sew Alongs (no attendance limits) that take place every Tuesday and Saturday morning from 10 am to 12 noon. Yes, there will be both in-person and virtual CQ meetings on Tuesdays in 2022!

Mission Statement
The mission of our guild is to:

  • enhance the knowledge of quilting within the group and the community
  • preserve quilting as an art form
  • establish, maintain and upgrade quilting standards
  • to encourage an exchange of ideas and methods
  • participate in community projects

We do this by bringing talented and creative quilt designers as speakers and to teach their special skills in workshops; by providing access to a large library of quilting and quilt-related books, magazines, and videos; by putting people together who share a passion for quilting in a warm and open environment at our monthly meetings and other scheduled events; and by hosting challenges, charity quilting bees, quilt shows and many other events and activities which provide opportunities for members to expand their knowledge and skills.
