Pacific Spirit Quilters' Guild

Where Quilters Gather in Burnaby

This year, the Pacific Spirit Quilters' Guild is celebrating its
30th birthday! 

Started in 1991 at the New Vista Care Home, the Pacific Spirit Quilters' Guild is a not for profit society.

Its purpose is to:

a.  make quilts and related items, that will be donated to other organizations within the community that deal with the victims of accident or misfortune. These items are to be passed along through these organizations at no cost to the recipients.

b. to provide and promote the education and enjoyment of quilting.

Guild Activities

Annual activities in support of the organization's purpose & to provide a bit of fun along the way.
Comfort Quilts

We make quilts for Burnaby Family Life, Burnaby General Hospital, Burnaby  Public Health,     St Michael's Centre and Hospice.

Each year, two Saturdays are available for members to get together and make Comfort Quilts. 

Batting is provided to complete Comfort Quilts by PSQG.


Field Trips

Quilting can happen everywhere.

In the past, we have gone on a Shop Hop, to the offices of Burnaby Family Life and to the Delta Hospice Society to quilt. 

We volunteer at the Burnaby Heritage Village to share our love of quilting with visitors.

Workshops and Sew Alongs

On the third Saturday of each month, except March, July and August, we offer members the opportunity to take workshops or participate in a Sew Along.

During a Sew Along, members can sew Comfort Quilts of sew for themselves.

On the first Saturday of  March, PSQG hosts a Quilt Expo at Edmond Community Centre.

It is an opportunity for members and the community to share quilts and quilting.
