Planning Begins for 2018

Yes, as the leaves fall from the trees and we quilters hunker down for a winter in our sewing spaces, thoughts turn to next summer’s Quilts at the Creek. We love -and display- all kinds of quilts at our show. But some people like a challenge, and we are always happy to oblige. What is next year’s challenge? Who is teaching workshops? What shall I make?

Our challenge this year is BIG / small. Interpret this as you wish- What??
Some suggestions:

  • A small quilt, with a big message (world peace?) This should be a 12 x 12″ quilt, and we will hang them together.
  • A large quilt with small blocks. Or one big block. Your choice!
  • Big and small in one quilt.. hmmmmm need to think about this one.

Our workshops this summer will be led by Leni Levenson Wiener. I LOVE her work, and can’t wait to meet her in person, see her work and attend her trunk show. Sneak peak of her work can be seen here. Details and online sign ups available in early January.

Do you have a dream teacher you would like to take a workshop with? Workshop instructors are booked years ahead, but we are always interested in your input- you never know, they just might be available and fit into our schedule! Or do you have favourite local quilter that you would like to see give a trunk show at Quilts at the Creek? Click here to send us an email with your suggestions!. Or leave a comment in the box below.

Happy quilting, and don’t forget to mark your calendar for next summer: July 28 & 29, 2018.

    Hi there. My suggestion for a teacher is Jennifer Houlden. She’s a wonderful teacher with a calm, encouraging and refreshing style. If you make a ‘boo boo’ — no problem! Her favourite phrase is “that’s OK”. She designs and writes her own patterns. I have been fortunate to test one of her recent patters for her. Her website is
    Jen can be contacted by email at She lives just outside of Barrie, so that’s nearby to you. Hopefully it works out!
