Visual and Creative Arts Scholarship


The Niagara Heritage Quiters’ Guild Visual and Creative Arts Scholarship of $1,000.00 was established in 2012 by one of our founding members, Nina Stahlschmidt. The idea of the scholarship was a way of involving the guild in the Niagara community. Nina and a group of members organized a silent auction to raise funds during the NHQG Quilt Show at Niagara College May 18-21, 2011. Members donated items for the auction and we received monetary donations by members of the community.

 The Niagara Heritage Quilters’ Guild is dedicated to the promotion of, and interest in, Fine Arts, Graphic Arts, Media Arts, Design, and/or Fashion and Clothing Design.
