MOUNTAIN CABIN QUILTERS’ GUILD
CELEBRATE CANADA 150
Members of the Mountain Cabin Quilters’ Guild were challenged to make a quilted item to commemorate Canada’s 150th year of confederation. The resulting quilts portray our wilderness and natural beauty, our adventurous and storied history, and our vibrant peoples and innovations.
Work in this show varies from more traditional pieces, some made from commercial fabric that was created to celebrate Canada’s birthday, to original art pieces. Despite the variety, they are all quilts as they contain at least three layers of fabric held together with stitching.
The Mountain Cabin Quilters’ Guild is based in Canmore, Alberta, serving quilters of the Bow Valley since 1995. The guild of over 75 members, provides an environment of friendship, mentorship, sharing and appreciation of traditional quilting, modern quilting and art quilting to quilters of all levels. Quilting is a creative art form, constantly evolving with new techniques and materials.
More about the guild, our quilting, our shows and the charitable work we do for our community, can be found at mountaincabinquilters.ca
The show will be on until January 4th in the Hub Gallery at artsPlace, 950 - 8th Ave, Canmore, Alberta. artsPlace is open 9 to 9 on Monday to Friday, Noon to 9 on Saturday and 9 am to 1 pm on Sunday. Over the holiday season, visitors should check for holiday hours.
