PINCUSHION QUILT GUILD
Who We Are
Named after the distinctive mountain that overlooks Peachland, Pincushion Quilt Guild is an energetic and talented group of 40 quilters who meet almost every Wednesday from September thru June to sew, cut, learn consult and yes, sometimes to just chat. Some of our members have quilted for over twenty years and some are closer to beginners.
Every year we undertake several “community projects” and have currently designated the Kelowna Women’s Shelter as the recipient of the majority of our donation efforts. Each year our efforts produce small quilts to be given to ladies and some children when they arrive at the shelter. The ladies get to keep them, and hopefully they supply some love and comfort to their new owners. Our group has also made close to 100 Christmas stocking for donation to The Salvation Army, who fill them as gifts for the less fortunate in our community. We also collected and presented them with sample size toiletries to help them out a bit. Each year we participate in the Angel Tree gifting at Christmas instead of exchanging gifts amongst ourselves.
We may be at full membership capacity right now, but you are welcome to add your name to our waiting list if you would like to join our guild. Once COVID restrictions are lifted we will resume drop-ins where you can in drop-in for $5 a visit. The first visit is free. We meet from about 9 AM to 4 PM on Wednesdays and hold a guild meeting on the 4th Wednesday of the month.
Bring your sewing machine and equipment or a hand quilting project. We usually have plenty of room where we meet in the Banquet Hall of the Community/Recreation Centre and there is a bit of basic equipment available for people to use. There will always be someone there to answer a question or help solve a problem and we love to make new friends.
