The Texada Island Quilter’s Guild is a friendly, informal group of quilters who meet every Monday night at 7 PM in the Royal Canadian Legion Basement.

The Guild has hosted classes in traditional wool rug hooking, dying fabrics, and tote bag construction. The Texada Island Needlework Guild is a chapter of the Embroiderer’s Association of Canada. They meet on the third Wednesday of every month at 7PM at the Royal Canadian Legion. The members of TING are active are dedicated to promoting the awareness and enjoyment of the art of embroidery in our community. They have hosted classes in several embroidery techniques, taught at our local elementary school, and demonstrated embroidery during a “Stitch in Public” event at our local Farmer’s Market. Both Guilds have been involved in the Texada Island Festival of Trees event, donating a tree decorated with hand embroidered and stitched ornaments for auction to benefit local charities.
