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 email@example.com.
2020 Opportunity Quilt
2020 has been a challenging year for us all. Many of our opportunities to sell raffle tickets for this beautiful quilt have been 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. If interested in supporting our endeavor, please feel free to send a check made out to Kenan Quilters' Guild for the purchase of tickets.
Tickets are $1 each or 6 for $5 and the winning ticket will be drawn December 10, 2020. All we need is a name and a phone number and we will fill out tickets for you. Please send info and check to Kenan Quilters' Guild (c/o Kim), 4389 Wilson Burt Rd, Wilson, NY 14172.
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.
