Welcome to the Region of York Quilters Guild! For the 2016 – 2017 year we are pleased to present an exciting program.
Our February guest speaker is Karen Howes. Karen has been creating quilts for almost 40 years with a real flare for both English paper piecing and scrap quilts. Her talk will take us through her quilting journey and explain why she is drawn to English paper piecing. Karen will have up to 30 quilts to share with us. You can see her work at www.faeriesandfibres.blogspot.ca.
