Our History


BannerSeymour Quilters Guild was founded in 2002 in North Vancouver, British Columbia, by a small group of quilters who wanted to create a place of friendship, learning, and inspiration for its members, and who wanted to make quilts for those in need.

Early meetings were held in members’ homes.  Currently, we meet at the Gloria Dei Church Hall in the Capilano area of North Vancouver to share our love of quilting.

We enjoy speakers, workshops, and activities on a wide variety of topics related to quilting and the fabric arts.

Community Quilt

We have made many quilts for babies, children and adults through our ongoing Community Quilts program, and we have made quilts for wounded Canadian servicemen and women through the “Quilts of Valour – Canada” organization.

Several years ago, one of our members created a presentation about the history of quilting called “Have Quilts Will Travel.”  Small groups of guild members take this presentation to local venues during the year, along with quilts to show.

Our banner quilt, displayed on the pages of our website, was designed by a group of talented and creative members to reflect our beautiful North Shore environment.
