Programs

2021-22

November’s meeting (Nov 11) will showcase some of our members who will demonstrate different quilting techniques which is always a favorite of our guild. As well our very own Carolyn Jennings who is the Fraser Valley representative for Quilts of Valor Canada will share about this wonderful program that supports injured Canadian Armed Forces members past and present, with quilts of comfort. A number of us in the guild have made quilts for this program. One thing about quilters – they love to give! Quilts of Valour Canada
