What's happening at The Quilting Quarters?



Friday March 21 to Saturday April 5

Collect playing cards from participating shops.

The Grand Prize~ a gift basket chock full of quilting supplies, tools, booksand patterns with a retail value of more than $750 ~

 will be drawn from all entries with cards from at least 10 different shops.

Visit at least five shops for a chance to win one of nineteen $50 gift certificates.

There are lots of ways to win a gift certificate:  draws are based on poker hands, the number of shops visited (all, 10-15, 5-9), etc.  The more cards you enter (i.e. shops visited), the more chances to win.

Many shops will also have in-store specials or additional prizes.

Memories of Schoolhouse 2011

Here are some pictures from our Schoolhouse last year that we had on Sunday, April 3rd.

Almonte Quilters Guild


There is a Quilt Guild for all quilters in Almonte!  Monthly meetings, the 3rd Monday of each month, are held at the Civitan Hall in Almonte from 7 pm to 9 pm. You’ll be inspired by show and tell. You will learn new skills as well as work on service projects and meet new friends that have a common interest.
