Welcome to the Region of York Quilters Guild!
For our 2017 – 2018 guild year, we are pleased to present an exciting program.
Our March meeting will feature Michelle Dunn. Michelle will provide a Trunk Show that includes a minimum of three dozen quilts made with Japanese and African fabrics. She will discuss pattern design, colour and a bit of textile history. Michelle will also bring a car-load of fabrics, patterns, etc. to sell. Visit www.kallistiquilts.com for more information on Michelle and her work.
