Edmonton Modern Quilt Guild
We are part of the Modern Quilt Guild movement that encompasses more than 100 quilt guilds in Canada, the United States and other countries around the world!
Edmonton Modern Quilt Guild (EMQG) began in 2010 with a few modern quilters and we've been growing ever since.
Our mission is to support and encourage the growth of modern quilting through art, education and community.
ABOUT OUR GUILDS
QuiltFest 2022 is the combined show for our two guilds. Our first show was in 2019 at the Leduc Recreation Centre.
This is our second show. Our guilds have members that range from under 18 to over 80! We boast quilters who quilt in a variety of styles and employ many methods such as
traditional, modern, post-modern, English paper piecing, embroidery, thread embroidery, hand stitching, machine stitching and longarm quilting.
We're excited to be back and have some fabulous creations to show you!
Come and see our creations and spend time chatting with us. Learn about what our guilds offer . It may turn you into a new quilter or send you on a new journey in your quilting practice!
Black Gold Quilt Patch Guild
The Black Gold Quilt Patch Guild was founded in Leduc, Alberta in 1995. We are a group of diverse people, sharing learning experiences of quilting, handed down from generation to generation, gathered to exchange ideas, and how-to’s and above all, becoming friends around a circle of joy and laughter, young and old.
We encourage quilting for the benefit of the community, making and distributing quilts where a need is found, through our Friendship Committee.
We meet the first Wednesday of each month from September to June, at 7pm at the Leduc Arts Foundry in the Leduc Recreation Centre. Come and join us! All are welcome. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
