Quilters Guild hosting third International Quilting Day

Check out quilts hanging throughout the community this Saturday

This Saturday, March 18 marks the third year the Boundary Bay Quilters Guild will celebrate International Quilting Day by holding another drive-by quilt show.

Members will display quilts outside their homes to provide the public with a glimpse of their creations.

With the end of COVID-19 restrictions, the Guild was able to resume regular, in-person meetings last September at the KinVillage Community Centre in Tsawwassen. During COVID, the guild was able to hire speakers from around the world, via Zoom, and this has continued, so the programs this year have been a mixture of in-person and Zoom presentations.

The Boundary Bay Quilters Guild continues to make and donate hundreds of quilts each year. Some of the recipients are Fraser Health, Deltassist, the BC Cancer Agency and Canadian Quilts of Valour. During COVID, the Guild donated more than 70 quilts to Fraser Health employees working in the COVID ICU departments to show them how much their work during the pandemic was appreciated.

Since 2008, the Guild has held bi-annual quilt shows, but, due to the disruption caused by COVID, the next show is scheduled for May 2024. Until then, International Quilting Day provides an opportunity for members to display their quilts and for the public to enjoy the show.
