The Stoney Creek Quilters Guild was founded in September 1992 by Sheila Zdriluk. The first meeting was held at the Stoney Creek Library and has continued to meet monthly since then. Though we have moved our meetings and workshops many times since that first meeting, our guild is still going strong and celebrated its 25th anniversary in September 2017.
The guild has continued to follow the original intent of the founding members by sharing our knowledge, teaching and maintaining the art of quilting and to give back to our community.
The guild holds monthly workshops and meetings where members and guests can learn and share new and some not so new techniques and skills. It is also a wonderful time to socialize and interact with friends old and new.
The guild has participated in Community Outreach Programs since its inception including making quilts for Bob Kemp Hospice, St. Peters Long Term Care, The Hamilton Fire Department, Good Shepherd Center, Grace Haven, Angela’s Place, Hamilton Regional Police Abuse Unit and many more.
“The Cutting Edge” is published once a month, a week prior to the general meeting. You may receive it by email or by regular mail if you provide self-addressed and stamped envelopes to the Newsletter Coordinator. Copies will be available to guests and new members on the first night only.
Our newsletter provides pertinent information regarding upcoming events, guild programs, workshops, executive contacts and much more.
Membership is $35 annually. Visitor fee is $5 to attend a monthly meeting. However if the visitor joins the following month, this fee will be credited towards their membership cost.
Please keep the membership coordinator up-to-date with any changes in your address, phone number or email address.
The Stoney Creek Guild follows a Constitution. As a member, you are entitled to view the Treasurer’s accounting books. There is also an open invitation for any member to attend the Executive meetings. The date of these meetings is announced at the general meeting and also noted in the newsletter.
