About our guild
The Quilt Guild of Greater Victoria is steeped in tradition for the 30+ years of its existence. Founded in 1983, it encompasses the talents of some 100 members who have kept the idea alive that a group of fabric/fiber artists can learn from each other and create a forum where new creativity can be nurtured and taught. The Quilt Guild of Greater Victoria has beginner members as well as others who have been with the group since its beginning. We are always looking for new members who want to learn more about the art or bring their fresh perspective.
The quilt industry has changed much in the past 30 years. Fabrics and fibers in vivid colors can be made into traditional quilts or morphed into the modern movement where the quilts would not be recognized by the grandmothers of the past. Today the quilter has access to tools such as internet learning channels on You Tube, Craftsy, computerized quilting machines, precut fabrics, Pinterest, and the list goes on.
The ages of the quilt artists are so diverse that there is something for everyone. It’s no wonder that quilting art is now a multi-billion dollar industry. The International Quilt Festival and QuiltCon are two national events that showcase the smorgasbord of creations that the current
fiber artists are creating.
Quilt Guild Member Challenge!
One of the show traditions is to host a challenge event for guild members. Each member purchased a kit that included two feature fabrics. This years fabrics were an orange and a mulitcolor blue/teal/green print. We had 12 entries. We welcome you to vote for your favorite. Click on the link below to see pictures and see how to vote.
Anyone may come as a guest or visitor for three meetings. However, after attending three (3) meetings, you should join and pay the appropriate dues before the next meeting.
Our members pay annual membership dues of $25.00 per person or $20.00 per person for a senior citizen (anyone over 60 years of age).
Members who join on or after July 1 only pay one-half of the annual fees.
