Twisted Stitchers Quilt Guild - Ajax

A charity and teaching guild

The Twisted Stitchers Quilt Guild has many programs to offer its members:
 

  • Meeting Nights:
    The second Tuesday of every month (September to June) is when we hold our Meeting Nights.  Although we do conduct a certain amount of business, we also make sure that there is something planned for the evening.  Click here for Meetings Program information.

     

  • Ketchup Days:
    The first and third Wednesday of every month are Ketchup Days (Sew Days).  We meet at the Pickering Seniors Centre on Linton Street at 9:00 a.m. and work/chat until around 4:00 p.m.  See the link for Sew Days for the theme of some of the Sew Days; but remember you can come to work on your own project or a charity project.  The fun and fellowship is part of the appeal!

     

  • Workshops:
    On a regular basis, the Twisted Stitchers Quilt Guild offers workshops to its members and affiliates.  In 2018/2019, we offered workshops on Panels and Swedish Weaving.  In 2017/2018, we had a workshop on English Paper Piecing and one on Stained Glass quilts.  The next one coming up will be conducted by Kathy Wylie - an expert on Applique and Machine Quilting.  The membership will decide what topic she will present.  See the link for Workshops for more information on the workshops.

     

  • Retreats:
    Traditionally, we have held Staycations which involves three days of fun, fellowship and quilting at a local retreat.  We bring our sewing machine, our projects, and our sense of humour.  Two dinners are planned for us and we bring our own lunches or buy them from the store.  The entertainment is fabulous and the company great!

    We are currently revising the venue and format of our Staycations.  Stay tuned for more information.  Guaranteed the fun and fellowship (and sewing) will stay the same.


    We also participate in retreats planned by other guilds or quilt shops.
