The Chilliwack Quilters’ Guild is will host its biannual quilt show at the Chilliwack Alliance Church Gym, 8700 Young Road, Chilliwack, on Saturday, Oct. 22 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

This year’s show, “A Galaxy Of Quilts” will feature a display of charity quilts as well as various other quilted items ranging from King-size bed quilts to small wall hangings sewn by members.  The event will also include a Tea Room, White Elephant Table, a Challenge Quilt Contest and a Merchants Mall.

The Guild’s Queen Size Raffle Quilt will be on display with raffle tickets available for purchase.

The Chilliwack Quilters’ Guild is a small but busy group of approximately 50 women dedicated to furthering the art of quilting in the community.

Over the past year, they have made approximately 80 quilts to be donated to hospice, day cares, transition houses, and Sto:lo Health Services. The funds raised at their quilt show and raffle are used to purchase the necessary materials so they may continue to make and donate quilts.

They meet regularly on the third Tuesday of each month from 8:30 a.m. to 12:15 at The Landing Sports’ Centre, 45530 Spadina Avenue.

Guild members engage in many activities, but their main focus is to ensure that quilting remains alive and active in the community.  Chilliwack Quilters’ Guild was started in 1985 and has seven charter members still in the group.
