History

The Parksville Quilt House Quilters Guild was founded in 1979. The Guild grew from the small group of students who attended Flo Conconi quilt classes at the Quilt House in Parksville. Flo started teaching quilting classes in the early1970’s when several friends asked her to show them the skills she had retained from her childhood.

The guild grew out of this workshop and has been growing ever since! The guild is the second oldest in the Province and it was first on Vancouver Island. Members come from all over the island. Our members vary in age from young to seniors.

The purpose of the Guild is "To promote and encourage interest in the excellence of quilting."

We have over 300 members!
