DUE TO COVID-19, OUR GENERAL MEETINGS ARE SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

We will keep you notified of any changes on opening dates via newsletter, website and or e-mail blasts.

Welcome

Niagara Heritage Quilters’ Guild is dedicated to promote the appreciation of the art of quilting, be it traditional, modern, contemporary, pieced or appliquéd , through education from our shared collective knowledge base with fun and celebration and to recognize community needs and the contribution that quilting can make.

Our members are like our quilts, completely unique!

Niagara Heritage Quilters’ Guild was established in 1980 when a member organized a quilt show to raise money for the Pelham and Effingham Heritage Associations. Recruiting several other women, all pretty much strangers, working together produced a very successful show. At the celebration party, and further discussion, the guild was formed over a pizza at Mother’s Pizza in St. Catharines.

Posting an ad in the St. Catharines Standard in December announcing the very first meeting was to be held at the library, the guild felt numbers would be only 20-30 people at most, considering the upcoming Christmas season.

Presidents Message

Thank you for visiting the Niagara Heritage Quilters Guild website. If you are a current member looking to see if anything is happening, bear with us. The executive is meeting regularly, social distanced, in a barn to make sure our guild stays on top of everything that is happening, so that the best decisions are made for the future. As with all organizations we are on hold waiting for
COVID-19 to leave us.

If you are a visitor to our website, please feel free to use the resources you find here to feed your interest in quilting. Contact us if you have any questions at: info@niagaraquiltersguild.com.  We have cancelled our 2020 programs and quilt show, and as we wait – we quilt. We extend our invitation to you to join us when we resume. We have wonderful and timely programs and workshops and fun interesting meetings, because we have fun interesting members.

I congratulate our wonderful caring members that have continued to make quilts for our various charities. You are amazing! Don’t forget to keep making placemats for Meals on Wheels. This Christmas season may be more stressful than most for our older shut-in citizens and you will get an email about the collection of placemats so that we can brighten their tables.
Like an old quilt, a lot of our members are worn on the edges, but still they give a lot of comfort to others.

It’s the 40th Anniversary of the Niagara Heritage Quilters Guild, and certainly we were hoping to celebrate this milestone.  Another postponement. Just think of all the wonderful things we have done and shared over the past 40 years. The friendships that have been made and the ideas
we have shared – the memories will continue.

Be patient and stay safe.
