The Norfolk County Quilters Guild runs from September to June each year.

           The guild usually meets the 1st Tuesday of each month, except October, when many of our members are volunteers at the Norfolk County Fair             in Simcoe, ON.  The meeting is then moved to the 2nd Tues. of that month.

           The meetings are held at 1 pm in the Vittoria and District Community Center located in the village of Vittoria, ON.  For a nominal fee you are               welcome to come, hear a speaker, share the hospitality and perhaps think about becoming a member.

Fun Days, are a day for members to assemble with the sewing project of their own choice, socialize and share their interest with other members.  These days are scheduled for the 3rd Tuesday of the month.

 

Norfolk County Quilters Guild History

In February 1984 a group of quilting friends met at the home of Golda Lounsbury.  Ten women were founding members of the guild and joined CQA in that year.

The mission of the guild was to preserve the art of quilting, learn new techniques and use our craft as an instrument to participate in community projects. 

The guild has donated quilts for fund raising events such as the Hospital Auxiliary and they have made a quilt for the Cancer Society, alternating between local and regional associations. 

Our current Outreach activity is for members to make quilts that are donated to the local CAS and Women's Shelter.

Since their first year, the Norfolk County Quilters Guild has contributed to Norfolk County Fair displays and demonstrations, as well as having works exhibited in areas throughout the county, such as the Lynnwood Arts Center.
