History

In 2017, the Thunder Bay Quilters Guild (TBQG) is 36 years old. It began in 1981 with 30 members when they decided to form a guild from their group that had been meeting informally for a while. From those early beginnings has arisen an active guild that boasts about 200 today. Our members range in ages – from their early 20’s to in their mid-90’s. All share a love of fabrics, sewing and quilting; and enjoy sharing that with others.

Our members also range in their abilities: from beginners to experts. We also have members who are known nationally and internationally. Many of our members also teach or will mentor others.
