Workshops

The Niagara Heritage Quilters’ Guild hosts numerous workshops throughout the year.
This past year we have been entertained and motivated by some great speakers including Terry Anderson, Bill Stearman, Celeste Compion, Linda Jackson and Leslie Morgan. Two workshops were held in the fall with Bill and Celeste. Members are encouraged to take note of upcoming workshops and participate in the learning opportunities offered. As Donna Pree moves on to new endeavours, our committee would like to say a big thank-you to her for her knowledge and expertise for the past 10 years.
