About the EDQG

The Edmonton & District Quilters’ Guild (EDQG) is a non-profit organization that started in 1979 with 35 members that has grown to over 300 members.

The objectives of the guild are to:

    • promote the appreciation of fine quilts
    • sponsor and support quilting activities
    • encourage quilt making and collecting, and
    • contribute to the growth and knowledge of quilting techniques, textiles, patterns, history and quilt makers through educational meetings, travel and fellowship.

The EDQG is run by volunteers who oversee the operation of the guild. The following paragraphs outline a few of the activities of the Guild.

A Newsletter is published nine times per year and all current members will receive it approximately one week prior to the monthly meeting. It is also available on the website in a member’s only section.

The guild maintains a Library of quilt related books and magazines that are available to members.  These books have been donated by individuals and publishers or purchased by the guild.

The guild participates in a variety of Community Service projects throughout the year.  Guild members who donate a quilt to the charity project will have their names entered into a draw for a prize, to be awarded at the June banquet.

The EDQG First Vice President hosts two weekend Retreats a year in the spring and the fall. They are held at Camp He Ho Ha on Lake Isle. She and her committee also host UFO Sewing Days in November and in January.

EDQG has monetary Guild Grants are available to members to attend educational opportunities. More information on the grants can be found in the Past President link in the Main Menu.

Our Program Committee hosts a special weekend workshop taught by a professional guest quilter. Check the Program Committee link for a detailed list of speakers, events and workshops. 

There is an orientation reception for new members held in the fall. The Get Connected Workshop is hosted by the Beekeeper to welcome all members, especially new members, to the Guild. The Beekeeper endeavors to assist members to join or form “bee” groups – smaller groups of members who get together in addition to the general meeting to pursue the social and educational aspects of quilting while focusing on a particular style, purpose or common interest.
