Welcome to the Region of York Quilters Guild! For the 2016 – 2017 year we are pleased to present an exciting program.

Peggy Kwan is speaking at our March meeting.  Peggy learned traditional methods of quilting many years ago but as an ER nurse working 12 hour shifts she felt she never had time to finish anything. That started her on the path to finding faster ways to do things and think about fabric in different ways. She brought and encouraged an adventurous experimentation into her 20+ years of teaching.

Check out some of Peggy’s recent work on her website: www.peggykwan.com or on Facebook by searching Peggy Kwan quilter.
