Thank you to Wendy W. and Karen C. for the time and effort for organizing the Squamish Quilt Guild’s booth with the quilt displays, and another huge ‘Thank You’ to all the Squamish Quilt Guild members who gave of their time to ‘man’ the booth and to the Guild members (and their husbands & friends) who helped to set up and take down the booth.

The Guild shares its efforts with the communities within the Squamish Valley by way of contributing bed quilts and wall-hanging quilts to a variety of local services, including Sea to Sky Community Services, Victim Services, Women’s Centre, Howe Sound Women’s Centre, Brightbill House, and Hilltop Seniors Residence.
