When in-person meetings are resumed, location will be:
Zion Christian Reformed Church,
409 Adelaide Ave., E., Oshawa

We offer an array of events for you to participate in. After all, a big part of quilting is the social time we spend with like minded creative people. We have a number of workshops, sew days and three retreats per year.
Workshops & Retreats
The Durham Trillium Quilters’ Guild is a diverse Guild with people of different perspectives, experiences, cultures, genders, races, socio-economic backgrounds, education levels, geographic locations, sexual orientations, and thoughts, who share the same drive to enhance our personal, social, spiritual and professional quilting experience for all members, and with awareness of inclusion and diversity across our membership. Each member is different and brings to the table their lifetime of experiences and knowledge, and adds value to the Guild because of these differences.
The quilt guild meets the second Monday of every month from September through June at the Zion Christian Reformed Church in Oshawa 7:00 p.m. If one of these dates conflicts with a holiday, a new date will be determined for that meeting. See below for upcoming dates and a map. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. so we can look in the library for a book, register for "show & share", switch some fabric, check in with Block of the Month and register for a workshop or retreat! Come out and join us!
COVID-19 UPDATE: the DTQG will continue to hold meetings and sew days virtually as long as government and health authorities require physical distancing measures to be implemented. For now, virtual meetings are planned until the end of 2021. Our retreats will be cancelled until they can be held in person. Members will be individually invited to web-based meetings by email, as long as we hold our meetings virtually. Guests may join virtual meetings - see below for details.
Threads of Friendship Quilt Show was held on November 22 & 23, 2019 at the General Sikorski Polish Veterans’ Association Hall.

Inclement Weather Policy:
For in-person meetings, if there is inclement weather, the decision on whether or not to hold the meeting will be made by 4:00 pm on the meeting night. An email will be sent from the guild to members and we will notify the local radio station (KX 96) if a meeting is cancelled due to the weather. Please exercise caution on the roads at all times.
