Formed in 1980, the Quilters met in each others’ homes until a studio was made available with the opening of St. Albert Place in 1984. The St. Albert Quilters’ Guild is commemorated as one of the contributors for St. Albert Place.
The St. Albert Quilters’ Guild is a vibrant and productive organization of quilters who celebrate camaraderie, creativity and a sense of community while conserving the fine art of quilting.
We have quilted for Canada’s former Governor General, the late Madame Jeanne Sauvé, and created a quilt representative of the life of the late Lois Hole, former Lieutenant Governor of Alberta.
The Quilters’ Guild designed and presented The Rendezvous 2011 Signature Quilt to the City of St. Albert in celebration of its 150th Anniversary.
At the request of the Youville Home, the Guild was privileged to design a tactile wall hanging to be used in therapy for dementia patients in the Dreamtime Room and to decorate the new facility with quilts.
We make and donate quilts for many fundraisers and charities, promote quilting through city-run classes, and actively participate in Alberta Culture Days in September and the Country Craft Fair in November.
We have Quilt Shows every five years and introduced the Quilt Walk to St. Albert.
St. Albert Quilters’ Guild is not a teaching guild, but quilters getting together. We meet Tuesday afternoon and Thursday evening in the Quilting studio, all year round. A person can join at any time.
