Quilters who attended the Gathering of the Guilds 2014 donated over 450 flower themed snow ball blocks that were then sewn together to create colourful Comfort Quilts by Sun Peaks Quilters and c0-organizers Barriere Community Quitters. These quilts will be given to those who would benefit from a fabric hug.
Sun Peaks Quilters would like to thank FortisBC Alternative Energy Services for their support for Gathering of the Guilds 2014 that was hosted at Sun Peaks this past year. The photo below is Jarek Bekesza holding the FortisBC Comfort Quilt.
We would also like to thank the Mayor and Council of Sun Peaks Mountain Resort Municipality also assisted Sun Peaks Quilters in helping put on Gathering of the Guilds. Pictured below is Mayor Al Raine with Joanne and Pat from the Sun Peaks Quilters.
Both the Sun Peaks Mountain Resort Municipality and FortisBC Alternative Energy Services will be giving their quilts to recipients of their choice.
Thank you again to all that supported this event! See you at Gathering of the Guilds 2015 in Osoyoos, BC on April 25th.
Don’t forget about Quilting in the Mountains 2015. Get your quilts ready for the Judged Quilt Show in 2016!
