Supporting your Community - Block by Block

Bowen's next community "sew-ins" are January 24 & 25
Quilt patches constructed by the Bowen Island Fibre Arts Guild.

Wow, hard to believe it is 2024 and time to start the creative juices going again!

We at the Bowen Island Fibre Arts Guild are always planning new projects to involve our community. In 2022, we made three quilts to support Residential School Survivors and in 2023, our big Queen size quilt helped raise funds for the Colin Ruloff Community Field House project.

Both of these projects involved the community participants making blocks to be incorporated into the quilt. This year, we would again like to make some small quilts for Bowen families in distress from fire, illness, or other personal hardships.

Our next planned community “sew-in” is set up January 24 and 25 at the Hearth from 10 am to 1 pm. We will again be making colourful blocks for the quilts - fabric, sewing supplies and machines are provided.

All level of sewers are welcome from beginner to expert - guild members are on hand to mentor participants. Come for one session or both!

Regestration is through the Hearth and cost is by donation (to support the Hearth for their space). Please come to support your community and to have some fun!
