Margaret Hrynew -- My Quilting Journey: Guilds & Bees
I started quilting as a hobby about 35 years ago.
My interest in quilting was sparked by my neighbour who belonged to the Edmonton Quilters Guild and instructed quilting classes for the Kenilworth Community League. My enjoyment for quilting continued as each year I encouraged our Ladies Auxiliary group to piece and hand quilt a quilt for charity. Since that time I have joined a quilting bee and then the Edmonton Guild and I spend most of my days working on projects, attending workshops and sharing my passion with others.
My presentation will give you a grassroots perspective on traditional quilting. Through my photos and stories I will demonstrate the advantages of belonging to larger groups and bees. I will attempt a PowerPoint to show you what my bee group workshops and challenges have inspired me to do. If nothing else I learned a little more about my computer!
