One of the goals of a quilt guild is to provide its members with learning experiences that they may use to develop quilting skills. These experiences are often best provided by lectures or workshops given by both national and local teachers. MTQG provides programs like these each month at general meetings.

Occasionally our meetings may be more social in nature, such as the spring luncheon or ice cream social, and our annual Christmas luncheon.

Quilts and quilting are always part of the day no matter what the occasion.

Scheduled programs and workshops will be presented here, but please see the easelprogram chairperson at general meetings for more information and to sign up for workshops you may be interested in taking.

Cathy Miller Program - March 21, 2016

The Singing Quilter, Cathy Miller presented “Sing A Song of Quilting” during our general meeting with a class the following day. Cathy and her husband, John, have been traveling for over 15 years and claim this is their last tour. Canadian singer/songwriter Cathy Miller used to be a folksinger with a slightly jazzy bent. She performed at folk festivals, clubs and house concerts all across Canada and released five CDs of her music. She was a member of “Trilogy” (with Eileen McGann and David K), touring a very successful Christmas show each year called “Two Thousand Years of Christmas”. After growing up in London, Ontario, she started her career in Ottawa, moved to Calgary Alberta in 1990 and in 2000 to Victoria BC, where she now lives.

But that was before. Now, Cathy and her husband John Bunge (a former member of The Gumboots from Yellowknife) travel the world, singing for quilting events, guild meetings and shows, and she is known as “The Singing Quilter”. To date, they have performed for 700 quilting guilds and events on three continents. That's an audience of over 60,000 quilters in all!!! They are having the time of their lives. You can learn more at Cathy’s website.

Cathy's Workshop - March 22

Miller SampleCathy is also a teacher! Now, she's also set her hand to teaching quilting."It's a great way to get to know people, and I love watching students learn to step beyond their comfort zones", says Cathy.

Being a creative person in many ways, Cathy is never interested in "cookie cutter" workshops, preferring to encourage the creative spark in each and every class.The class is “Mock Mola.”
