All Upcoming Guild Activities will be Virtual
Welcome to our next online meeting
February 17, 2021 at 7:00 pm
Our February speaker is Kelly DuMaresq who comes to us from Markham. Kelly has been quilting for over 20 years and has a passion for scrap quilts - making them and teaching them. Her focus is on traditional quilts and finding easy and efficient ways of making the basic units used in these quilts. Her true joy is to share her love of quilting and to encourage others to dig into their own scraps.
For the Love of Scraps
Kelly's presentation will highlight the scrap quilts she has made and she will share lots of ideas for you on how she puts them together, what makes scrappy quilts work, ways to approach scrap quilts, etc. She will also share her strategies for managing our scraps so they inspire us to use them!
Our virtual vendor for this meeting is RoyalQuilts.com https://royalquilts.ca
Leanne Parsons is a quilter, pattern designer and teacher in Newfoundland, Canada. She loves scrappy quilts, applique and using every last little bit of those favourite fabrics and tries to incorporate all of that into her patterns. When not quilting, you’ll find her reading, walking, running or snowshoeing.

Paper Piecing with Freezer Paper
Saturday, March 27, 2021
Workshop Fee: $20
The cost of the pattern is $11.20.
A link to purchase the pattern will be sent to registrants.
Paper piecing with freezer paper is like magic! All the precision of paper piecing, but no ripping out tiny bits of paper at the end. In this 2 hour virtual workshop you’ll learn how to paper piece with freezer paper using Leanne’s Burst pattern. Burst is a great scrap buster and the pattern includes three size options - mini, throw and large lap. No previous paper piecing experience is needed. As long as you’re comfortable with your sewing machine, you’ll be able to experience the magic as you create your own Burst quilt.
