Piecing together a quilting show

  • Print

The 40 members of the Assiniboine Circle Quilters are excited about displaying their creations at their upcoming quilt show.


"We usually have close to 100 on display," said member Sandy Spence.


The show is scheduled to run on Sun., Sept. 22 in the St. Francois Xavier Community Centre from 11 to 4 p.m. This is where the members meet twice a month from September to June to work on their quilts. Their meeting time switches from two Thursday evenings a month to an all-day meeting once a month on a Saturday during the winter months.


Spence said quilters from the local area are joined by others from surrounding communities and a few from the west side of Winnipeg.


Visitors to the group’s show, which is held once every two years, might be surprised by the variety of fabrics, colours and patterns incorporated into the quilts.


"The quilts have really changed over the years," Spence said.


At each show, a quilt is raffled off with the money raised going to a charity, with the local Country Kids Learning Centre being the beneficiary for this year’s show. Tickets are $2 each or three for $5, and are available from the group’s members and will be sold at the show.
