The Royal City Quilters Guild was formed in 1991. The Guild held its first general meeting in April of that year chaired by Evelyn Lane at the Delhi Recreation Centre. The Guild started with just sixteen members and has since grown to over one hundred members. The Guild’s objectives are to promote quilting as a traditional craft and art form, provide educational opportunities in the form of workshops or speakers, exchange ideas, and to preserve the tradition of quilt making. Membership is open to anyone interested in quilts and quilt making. The guild charges a membership fee and holds monthly meetings. Active in the community, quilts created from quilting bee’s organized by the Guild are often donated to local hospitals and or women’s shelters.
