One of the mandates of the Victoria Quilters Guild is education about quilting.  To this end the Workshop Committee schedules Workshops with locally, nationally, and internationally  recognized quilting teachers.

Policy For Workshop Attendance In order to encourage the sharing of teachers and resources among interested local guilds we have instituted the following policy regarding attendance at workshops.

  •  Workshops will be offered first to VQG members.

  • One month prior to the workshop date, attendance will be opened to members of other fiber and fabric guilds (West Shore, MQG, Embroiderers Guild, Up Island Guilds for example) at the same price (assuming there are still available seats).

  • Non guild members will also be allowed to sign up one month before the date, (assuming there are still seats available). They will be charged a 10% surcharge.

Please contact us with questions, comments, and  suggestions for workshop topics or teachers.
