2019 Quilt Show
At the 2019 Quilt Stories show, all guild members are winners. We can pat ourselves on the back for a job well done. There were 584 visitors, 87 show quilts, challenge quilts, door prizes, raffle quilt, tea room, boutique, Fibre Arts Network display and vendors.
The Seton Villa seniors bus trip was a great highlight especially in the tea room where there was birthday cake for a quilter turning 101. Yes that’s right one hundred and one. We also had young visitors and volunteers.
Thanks to each and every guild member as well as husbands, sons, daughters & friends who all helped make our show “pop”. Thank you to George Read for taking photographs of the quilts & show for our guild archives.

2016 Quilt Show
Over 573 visitors attended the show the last RMQG quilt show held Sept 9th & 10th 2016 at Burnett Fellowship Church in Maple Ridge. The show was a collection of beautiful traditional, modern & art quilts. A highlight of the show was the Innovative Fibre Art Show by FAN (Fiber Arts Network). Over 180 quilts were displayed. The feature quilter’s were Lil Erikson, her daughter & granddaughter. The guild challenge was a Tibetan prayer flag. The flags were red for fire, yellow for earth, green for water, blue for sky & white for air. We had 35 entries that created a colourful addition to our entry area. There was a merchant mall, tea room & members sale boutique. Beautiful music was played during the show by Jana Seal. The show was a success due to the support of the members of the guild & community donations.
