We Care - Giving Back to Our Community
Members are encouraged to participate in our We Care Program but it is not a requirement of membership. Usually, in January, our We Care committee presents a couple of designs to members at our monthly Guild Meeting. If you wish, you can use these designs or use a design of your liking. The quilt can be any size.
The Guild will supply the batting and backing for one-two quilts per member per year. The members supply their own fabrics for the quilt tops. The quilts are donated to various groups here in Chilliwack Agassiz and Hope.
Workshop dates and times vary depending on availability of instructors. The workshops are open to all members and we have about 15-20 ladies in each class based on first to sign-up at Guild meetings. Prices vary according to the instructor and the type of class. What a wonderful opportunity to get to know other guild members and to learn new techniques. So don't be shy, be sure you sign up.
