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 membership@bgqpg.com for more information.

OUR CHARITY PARTNERS

Both of our guilds have charity partners which we support in a variety of ways.

Our guild members work together and individually to create quilts to donate to charities in need. 

Making quilts isn't without expense. Both of our guilds raise funds by holding raffles and other fundraising efforts to help support our work.  

You can help us help others by buying tickets to our raffle quilts before or during the show. 

Black Gold Quilt Patch Guild

The Black Gold Quilt Patch Guild supports numerous charities and groups with their Friendship Quilts.

 

The Friendship Committee donates quilts on an ongoing basis to various charities, especially those that involve children. These include Ronald McDonald House, Zebra Child Protection Centre and Sleep in Heavenly Peace. Over the years we have donated many baby quilts for the preemies in intensive care at the Stollery Children’s Hospital We also donate to adult organizations such as Compassion House and Quilts of Valour. We also try to respond to needs in communities when disaster strikes, such as the fires in Fort McMurray and Lytton, B.C.
