thursday group

Two years ago, the Toronto Public Library, Spadina Branch (10 Spadina Road, north of Bloor) hired me to teach a quilting class.

In 5 weeks, 15 women, all beginners, made a Victorian Crazy Quilt! Crazy that we finished it in that short time!

The quilt is being used for the children's story time program.

I taught a similar program at the Jones' library (118 Jones Avenue) last year. Their quilt was loved by all patrons and so it ended up as art work on the wall!

The women of both classes asked to continue meeting weekly and so they have. The group I run at the Spadina Branch is called Spadina Quilt and Talk. Although I still believe it should be called Talk and Quilt!

We work on several projects at a time. Whenever a new one is introduced, we have a short lesson. All our finished quilts are donated.

These are some of the wonderful hand sewers from the Spadina Quilt and Talk group. There are about 20 ladies and gentleman that have participated in our projects.

All are welcome to join or drop in. There are no fees. No experience needed. It is very informal.
