Kenan Quilters' Guild
The goal of the Kenan Quilters' Guild is to preserve and promote the art of quilting. The group aims to enhance the art of quilting by sharing ideas, expertise, and fellowship among members.
The Quilters' Guild supports the Kenan Center by making an Opportunity Quilt each year, presenting a biennial Quilt Show in the Kenan Arena, and presenting other quilt-related programs and events throughout the community.
Meetings are open to all and are held the second Thursday of the month at 7:00 p.m. in the Taylor Theater Meeting Room on the Kenan campus. Membership is $15 per year which includes a Guild newsletter.
For more information, contact the Kenan Center Business Office at (716) 433-2617 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
2020 Opportunity Quilt
2020 has been a challenging year for us all. Many of our opportunities to sell raffle tickets for this beautiful quilt were cancelled. We create a quilt each year as a fundraiser with the express purpose of donating the proceeds to the Kenan Center of Lockport, a cultural, educational, and recreational gem in our community. Thank you to the membership this year for stepping up and selling more than we usually do to friends and family. Thank you also to Marie's Sewing Center in Lockport for displaying the quilt and selling tickets during her online Live Sales. The winning ticket was drawn on December 10, 2020 and Ginny LaForge from Wellsville is our winner. Congratulations Ginny!
This quilt is called "Golden Delight." It measures 81" by 81". Judy Schryver created the quilt and it was long arm quilted by Margaret Landon of The Quilt Parlor, both guild members. They've done a beautiful job.
The Kenan Quilters' Guild is a proud affiliate of the Kenan Center in Lockport, NY.
