The Kootenay Quilter’s Guild is proud to present its biennial quilt show, “Sew It Seams” this weekend at Prestige Lakeside, Sept. 27 and 28.

The guild has a combined membership of over 60 women from both the morning and evening groups that enjoy sharing the techniques and outcomes of the diverse craft of quilting.

Our featured quilters are Suzanne Holmes and Caroline Foster, both members of the evening guild.

Suzie started quilting when her first grandchild was born. The baby and the craft have been a love song ever since. She always enjoyed working with her hands, and quilting certainly fit the bill.

Caroline began her quilting journey 25 years ago and credits being mentored by Denise Crowley. She creates for family, friends, charities and life events. She holds firmly to her needles for hand quilting.

Both are longtime members of the Kootenay Quilter’s Guild and hold the friendships they have made as important as the quilts.

The show will have over 200 quilt pieces both large and small on display along with vendors, a quilter’s boutique and raffles.
