The Chilliwack Quilters’ Guild are holding our biannual quilt show “Sew’d to Joy” on Friday, October 13 from 5pm – 8pm, and Saturday, October 14 from 9am - 4pm, at the Chilliwack Alliance Church at 8700 Young Street in Chilliwack. Admission is $8.00; children under age 15 and spouses get in for free. This is our first post Covid show! There will be a display of quilts of all sizes from Crib size to King size bed quilts, wall hangings and other smaller quilted items created by our members. In addition there will be a Merchants’ Mall, White Elephant Table, Members’ Boutique, a Challenge Quilt contest and demos of quilting techniques. As a special treat we have included an old fashioned bed turning, where we will show around 20 vintage quilts from our members. This year’s Queen size raffle quilt, designed by Georgette Dell’Orco for Cozy Quilt Designs, and sewn by our members, will be on display with raffle tickets available for purchase. A food truck will be on site with refreshments. We are able to accept debit and credit cards for purchases $10 and up; anything below $10 is cash only. Sorry for any inconvenience.
The Guild is a busy group which has weathered the Covid public health restrictions by moving to Zoom meetings for two years. We are back to in person meetings now, but through all the challenges and changes we have never stopped quilting and donating quilts to the community – 221 quilts were given to 11 different groups in the last year alone. The funds raised at the quilt show and raffle are used to purchase the necessary materials to support members in making and donating quilts. Guild members engage in many activities; however, our main focus is to ensure that the art of quilting in its many forms remains alive and active in the community.
