My Quilting Journey
We are excited to have Paul Leger as our final speaker for the 2021-2022 Guild Year. Paul lives in Ottawa where he retired after working for the federal government for over 16 years after spending 21 years in the Canadian Armed Forces.
Paul’s quilting journey started in 1990 and with the encouragement of his mother bought a sewing machine for “sewing emergencies”. Fast forward 31 years and over 250 quilts to his credit Paul has never looked back. In retirement life, Paul’s quilting had taken on another life. He doesn’t quilt any more or
less but now is asked to teach, make presentations as well as to contribute to magazines and blogs.
Paul’s trunk show will be of his journey over the years. You will see changes in his quilting style and designs starting with his first quilt. In sharing his journey, he will also be sharing many stories, some will be “awww”, some will be more like what was he thinking.

May 28 & June 11, 2022
Krista Moser was our wonderful speaker at the March guild meeting. We are fortunate to be able to offer her FanFaire Sampler workshop. This fun 2-day workshop uses her Creative Grids 60 Degree Diamond Ruler.
This sampler style quilt has endless possibilities. Every block teaches you a new way to use the Creative Grids 60 Degree Diamond Ruler. Krista will teach you how to cut a combination of diamonds, triangles, hexagons, parallelograms, and trapezoids to create this fun quilt, and all with one ruler! This quilt goes together fast and is oh, so striking! If you have been wanting to break out of the same old quilting routine and try something different, this class is just the thing.

Saturday June 11 (part 2)
Time: 11:00am - 5pm EST
Cost: $70 members - pattern and ruler are not included
