Welcome to the Region of York Quilters Guild!

For our 2018 – 2019 guild year, we are pleased to present an exciting program.

Our October meeting will feature Tracey Lawko, an award-winning textile artist who creates intricate pieces drawn in thread using a long-arm machine.  She will be presenting her slideshow/talk “One Stitch at a Time”.  You can find out more about Tracey’s work at her website www.TraceyLawko.com, or on her Facebook page at www.facebook.com/traceylawkotestileart/.  Tracey’s work will also be appearing from October 18 through November 4 in a solo exhibition called “Small Things Matter”, at the David Kaye Gallery in Toronto (www.davidkayegallery.com).
