Quilt Guild of Greater Victoria celebrates 30 years
The Quilt Guild of Greater Victoria is celebrating its 30th year of quilting.
Quilting is often a social activity with friends helping each other, and when a quilt is finished, there is a great sense of achievement for all involved.
Victoria's Quilt Guild began in 1983 when Judy Murrah, Doris Raska, Joyce Teinert, Rose Ayers, Virginia Oehlke and Irene Flagg along with a few others started getting together in the O'Connor Gallery in the McNamara House.
Now, the Guild has more than 100 members and meets at Grace Presbyterian Church, 3604 N. Ben Jordan St.
These classes are inexpensive and optional. Meetings are open to the public; guests are welcomed.
Once a year, Quilt Guild of Greater Victoria has a show with entries from all over, along with vendors and a lunchroom. The next one will be March 28-29 at Holy Family Catholic Church in the activity hall, 704 Mallette Drive.
