About Us

What We Do


The Mountain Cabin Quilters Guild is based in Canmore, serving quilters of the Bow Valley. Guild members attend monthly meetings, quilting, and educational events, vote at the Annual General Meeting in June, and use the guild library. They also qualify for priority registration at all guild-sponsored events. Each year, we raffle a quilt to raise funds for various guild programs.

Meetings


Monthly guild meetings are held on the 3rd Wednesday of the month from September to June at the Canmore Recreation Centre,  1900 8 Ave, Canmore AB T1W 1Y2. The December meeting is held on the second Wednesday due to the holiday season.

Members attend for free and guests may attend for a fee of $5.00. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. and the meeting runs from 7:30 p.m. until 9:30 p.m. Go to the Calendar for more details.

Education Program & Guest Speakers


Each year the guild holds courses for its members. This course may be given by external instructors or from its own ranks. Non-members may attend but the fee will be slightly higher than for members and registration priority is given to members.

The guild also brings in guest speakers from a wide range of quilting related topics – threads, pattern drafting, the Singing Quilter, art quilting.

Stitch and Learn


Stitch and Learn sessions are held during Quilt Till Ya Wilt events.  Guests may attend for a fee of $5.00. Go to the Calendar for more details.

Quilt Till You Wilt


Several times a year, the guild gets together for a day of quilting. The day starts early, usually at 10:00 a.m., and ends at a designated time or until the last quilter wilts. There is a $5 fee for guests. Go to the Calendar for more details.

Quilt Shows


The Artistic Visions Show is held each year in the spring – usually in March and runs for 3 weeks. Our Fall Show is generally held every other year, in the autumn over one weekend.
