As usual my blog posts are few and far between but the Inuvik Quilting Guild is celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2016 and I feel like I need to make more of an effort to keep up with information, photos and updates of quilting (and curling) in Inuvik. This Guild was first started in 2006 with myself, Carolyn Hunter and Beth Pechter (who now resides in BC). The support and members the Guild has had in 10 years continues to amaze and inspire me and the amount of activities we have taken on is huge, especially considering we are a community of only 3,800 people in total.
Catching up on projects and activities! The Guild hosted its 9th Annual Summer quilt show in Inuvik in summer 2015. We did a Twelve By Twelve challenge and display inspired of course by the original projects/initiative (http://twelveby12.blogspot.ca/) . This show was hung at the Inuvik Community Greenhouse (http://www.inuvikgreenhouse.com/) and at the Great Northern Arts Festival (http://www.gnaf.org/).
I LOVE these projects that we do each year! My project this year was Tinny Loves Picking Cranberries and was a pattern that I created in a workshop a few years ago with Yellowknife artist Janet Pacey (@signedYk). I have wanted to do this pattern for long and finally got a chance!
Happy Sewing Everyone!
