Have a look at the slide show of our guild members latest quilts and projects.

Our March 9th guild meeting was held via zoom.  Our speaker for the evening was Sonya Oblak and our members enjoyed listening to her process of finding thrifted fabrics; what and where to look for fabrics suitable for quilting.  We enjoyed the many photos of her projects.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

March 2021 Guild Meeting

Sonya Oblak will be presenting via Zoom at our March 9th Guild meeting.  

Thrifted, Gifted or Free – Using Pre-owned Fabrics in Quilts

My ‘WHY’ of using thrifted fabrics in quilt making and other projects

What I look for when I go thrifting: a virtual shopping trip

Trunk Show: My Thrifted Linen Quilts

Sonya started quilting 23 years ago.  She now loves to design and create one of a kind quilts, often using thrifted fabrics, especially linen.  When she’s not in her studio, you can find her enjoying all that the Yukon outdoors provides:  open space, peace, tranquility, and lots and lots of inspiration.

Cardiac Pillow Project for Royal Columbian Hospital

Laurie Parrent has brought us a new community service project. These pillows are given out at a rate of hundreds per year to cardiac patients to help in their recovery. They are held to the chest for support during deep breathing or coughing to aid in the recovery of the sternum. Check under Programs on the top bar for a link to the instructions or click HERE.

Ridge Meadows Quilters’ Facebook Group

RMQG Facebook group is a place for conversations, sharing of projects and patterns, and asking for advice.  The group is restricted to Guild members and cannot be seen past the basics on the opening screen by anyone who is not a member. That means that our conversations and images are private within the group. A person has to apply to join. Once they click on “Join”, a message goes to the 3 admins [same as for the page] and if the person is a member they are added to the group.  If you are a member & interested in more information send a email to the contact at the bottom of the page.  Looking  forward to hearing from you.
