Meeting address: Salvation Army Citadel, 4030 Douglas Street, Victoria, BC, CANADA
It was amazing, wasn’t it? Over 200 quilts made by Guild members were joined by quilts from the Fibre Arts Network and the Modern Quilt Guild. There was the display of Heritage Quilts and the display of dolls. There were Challenge quilts, baby quilts and the Raffle quilts. The merchant mall was fantastic. Jana Seale’s music and the food from the Mason Jar Eatery were appreciated by all. And the amazing collection of quilts and quilt related articles in the Guild Store were the icing on the cake.

Victoria Quilters Guild members, here on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, vary from traditional hand quilters to fabric artists. Our mandate is to promote and encourage interest in the art of quilting through dissemination of related information; to work together in harmony with mutual respect; and to continue the education of ourselves and the public in the art of quilting.
The Guild’s special project is Comfort Quilts for babies in the Victoria General Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
You will also see our volunteers at the annual Saanich Fair in September outside the textile arts exhibit.
Monthly meetings include a program presented by world class quilters who show their work in an array of methods: trunk shows, slide shows, interesting props and even singing.
