Guild History

Invitation to Region of York Quilters Guild Meetings in 1985, our first year of operation.

The Region of York Quilters Guild was established in November 1985 by a small group of women who recognized the need for a quilting association within York Region. The first meeting was held in the Aurora Public Library with 25 people in attendance. Since 1985, our Guild has grown to our present 200 members.

Our Historical Archives are comprised of photographic and printed records of Guild activities. Past quilt shows as well as photos of monthly Display sessions and various Guild activities are recorded.




The RYQG maintains membership with the Canadian Quilters Association.
