Program at a Glance

2019-20 Program Information 

We are very pleased to welcome some dynamic and interesting speakers to present at our monthly meetings in the upcoming (2019-20) program year. We’ve also got a number of workshops lined up to entice your creativity! To whet your appetite…. Here’s what we have confirmed to get our year started!

March 18, 2020 – The Wonderfill World of Thread! Joanne Flamand
Choosing threads for your projects can create more questions than you may have answers! Joanne will provide some understanding and clarity to your thread knowledge to assist you in your future projects, from machine or hand piecing, machine or hand quilting, thread embellishment, and machine embroidery work. Choosing the right thread from your very first stitch will affect the result of your finished project.
April 15: Edmonton Modern Guild - Wendy Cooper
Presentation details coming soon

Saturday, April 25, 2020 – EDUCATION WORKSHOP, Scrappy Play Time with Cathy Tomm

Venue: TBA
$50/person, includes lunch – Registration commences at March Guild Meeting

Come join me to play with your pretty scraps. Making fabric out of nothing! I will show you how I cut, sort and store my scraps in a rainbow of colour. I will then show you how I have used my tiny bits of fabric. You will build fabric using your precious scraps with a few poverty piecing techniques shown. Our larger blocks will be based on traditional quilt blocks, but we will have used poverty piecing to add greater interest and texture. Students can choose the Bouncy Ball block or a Friendship Star block (some students may have time for both blocks).

May 19, 2020 – Alabama Chanin – Judy Elliot
Presentation details coming soon
