Welcome to the Region of York Quilters Guild!
For our 2018 – 2019 guild year, we are pleased to present an exciting program.
Our September meeting will focus on last year’s mystery quilt Sweet 16 by Border Creek Station Pattern Company. Members are invited to bring their completed quilts to this meeting for the Big Reveal. If your quilt is not quite complete, or maybe just a quilt top, please bring it anyway so that we can admire it and learn about your journey making it. (NOTE: Only finished Sweet 16 mystery quilts will be eligible for the prize draw). We will also roll out the new mystery quilt for our 2018 – 2019 guild year.
