Four Corners Quilters’ Guild will participate in Culture Days on Saturday, September 24 in the lower leisure hall in Mount Forest. The Guild plan to have up to a dozen members there working on their own projects and will be available for demonstrations and interaction with visitors. The Guild will also have many of their finished projects on display and will have some general information about the guild available as well.
Four Corners Quilters' Guild
The Four Corners Quilters’ Guild was established in 1998, with the name reflecting the origins of the founding members who lived in the four townships of Egremont, Normanby, Arthur and Minto. Today, we have more than 50 members who travel to meetings from a wide local radius to build their skills and participate in charitable activities.
As a community-based, volunteer organization, we have four main objectives, as defined by our Constitution:
To promote the art of quilting
To provide learning opportunities for members
To provide opportunities for fellowship and support
To provide meaningful contributions to our communities
Anyone with an interest in quilting is welcome to join the guild. Our meetings feature a Show and Tell which is an opportunity to show a project that you are working on or have completed. You may also “show” anything that is quilt-related that you think would interest our members. As an incentive for participating, we hold a draw each meeting, which is a small, quilting-related item.
Some months we will feature a block and give instructions for making it. Someone will demonstrate the methods used and will answer any questions or concerns you may have.
We have a growing collection of quilting books in our library which may be signed out for one month. As well, you are encouraged to submit articles for our newsletter.
The guild is managed by an elected Executive, four standing committees and a number of support positions. Every member is encouraged to participate on a committee or serve in a support position.
