Welcome to the Region of York Quilters Guild! For the 2016 – 2017 year we are pleased to present an exciting program.
Our speaker for the month of April is longarm quilter Robin Bogaert, coming from the Waterloo area. She will be sharing her quilting journey – her roots in quilting are traditional, however she appreciates modern quilt design as well. The focus of her work currently is designing, teaching, free motion quilting and thread painting. Robin was featured in the Summer of 2016 in Quilters’ Connection Magazine and will be featured in the Canada 150th Edition of Quilters Connection.
