As a result of the pandemic with COVID-19 and the resulting public health emergency in Alberta, we have cancelled the 2020 Quilt Show, including lectures and classes. We are looking to reschedule the show to May 2021 and will post dates once they have been confirmed.

If anyone has pre-paid fees, refunds will be issued in the coming weeks.

Keep quilting and stay healthy.  We look forward to seeing you all next year.

Shuswap Quilters’ Guild Quilt Show



Unfortunately, due to the whole virus situation our guild has suspended meetings, and that necessarily resulted in a decision to cancel the quilt show. We plan to reschedule for the first weekend in June, 2021
