Welcome to Whistler Valley Quilters’ Guild!

About Whistler

whistler snowWhistler Village is located in the spectacular Coast Mountains, only 40 kilometres inland from the Pacific Ocean and 120 kilometres north from Vancouver, one of Canada’s largest and most beautiful urban centres.

We have snowy winters with moderate temperatures and beautiful sunny summers.  There are unlimited outdoor activities here including over 8,000 acres of world class skiing and boarding, miles and miles of Nordic trails,  snowshoeing, golfing, hiking, biking, and also a quaint pedestrian-only village with more than 200 shops, 90 restaurants and bars, spas, galleries, and accommodations galore.

Whistler’s permanent resident population is about 12,000, yet we have an annual visitation of over three million people.  All this leads to a unique small-town feel with big-city amenities.

Our Guild

The Whistler Valley Quilters’ Guild meets the first and third Tuesday of the month (except June, July & August and a break over Christmas) from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm at Maury Young Arts Centre (4335 Blackcomb Way) in the Multi-Purpose room (click here for map).  During COVID times, we are holding virtual meetings via Zoom.

We are an active but relatively small sized guild of just over 40 women. When we’re not enjoying outdoor pursuits, we are cozy inside with our projects–particularly in the snowy season!  Our email address is whistlerquiltguild@gmail.com.

Why Join?

There is something for beginners and experts—and those in between.  We have black and whiteprograms for new quilters including experienced members who are very generous with their expertise.  We arrange workshops on various techniques, bring in guests to present trunk shows, hold 1-day ‘mini retreats’, coordinate an annual 4 or 5-day quilting retreat, have an active community quilts program, and, of course, there is  the opportunity for wonderful show and tell sessions at all our meetings.  We have a lending library, a members’ only area on our web page that contains tips and tricks, patterns, and other useful information, a regular newsletter, and two fabulous pot luck dinners every year.

Membership is only $45 per year.  The first meeting of the month is usually a business meeting and “work on your own project” time; the second meeting is usually a mini-workshop or technique class or time to work on community quilts.  Not sure if you want to join the Guild?  How about Zooming in as a guest?!  Just email us for the link using the “Contact Us” link at the top of the page.

Quilts in the Mountains SabrinaWatch our Community Quilts Quilting Bee You Tube video here.  With a generous grant from the Community Foundation of Whistler in May 2013, we were able to make 47 community quilts that will be donated to members of our community that are experiencing difficult times.
