North Star Quilt Guild
Members of the North Start Quilt Guild are a talented and creative group of quilters. The guild was established in March 1998 when like-minded quilters wanted to share their creative skills and talents. There are now 65 members from Flin Flon, Creighton, Bakers Narrows, Denare Beach, Cranberry Portage, and The Pas.
In the fall of 1998 the members held their first public quilt show. Since that time North Star Quilt Guild has held a quilt show every second spring, showcasing over 150 quilted items each show. As well the group has collaboratively designed and submitted original pieces to the Northern Juried Art Show, with one piece becoming a price winner.
While individual members revel in expressing their life experiences and style through their work, the group meets for one full day a month to design and sew comfort quilts. These are donated to organizations that care for those in need of comfort and encouragement. Over the history of the guild, the number of quilts donated would be close to 700, each one an original sewn with love and caring.
Meetings are every third Tuesday of the month at the Northminster Memorial United Church (250 Bracken St).
